Quote and Quill was founded by creative duo Natalie and Jan. Combining our love of words and books (Quote) with our passion for writing (Quill), we create writing sets, notebooks, bookmarks and gifts inspired by beautiful literature.
From Alexandre Dumas and F. Scott Fitzgerald to Jane Austen and the Brontës, these authors are classic for a reason. Their words still resonate all these years later - they make us think, they make us feel. Much like writing and receiving letters.
We at Q & Q grew up on writing letters. Good, old-fashioned, pen to paper, stick a stamp on it and pop-it-in-a-mail-box letters. In this fast-moving, throwaway, digital age, there's still something magical about receiving tangible snail mail. It's the oldest form of communication and the ultimate comeback kid too.
Because a love letter will never go out of style (just look at Jenny Han's YA phenomenon To All The Boys I've Loved Before). Neither will a letter sent across continents to family you've not seen for years, or a postcard mailed to a friend simply to brighten their day. We hope our writing sets inspire you to join the letter writing resurgence and spread some hand-written cheer.
What about paper waste, we hear you ask. Well, we believe you can have lovely paper goods and still be kind to the planet. We're an eco-friendly business and are proud to sell products that are ethically printed in the UK and made from recycled, sustainable materials. Read our eco ethos.
And because we're passionate about writing and reading, a percentage of each month's sales will go to BookTrust, a charity which transforms the lives of children in the UK with books, resources and support to help develop a love of reading. Find out more about BookTrust.
Get creative with us on Instagram! We'd love to hear your thoughts on letter writing, books and our literature inspired stationery. At the end of every month, we'll choose our favourite Quote and Quill inspired Instagram post. Just share a creative photo of one of our products with a caption telling us what you love about it. Be sure to tag us @quoteandquill and include the hashtag #quoteandquill. The chosen photo will receive a little bookish gift from us!
