The Notepad (stationary and party etiquette)

REVIEWED BY: Marguerite Zelle




BLOG DESCRIPTION: Personalized Stationery and Party Etiquette

MY REVIEW: This is the blog to a commercial website, American Stationery, that sells everything related to the literary life - correspondence cards, embossed notes, business stationary, envelopes, address labels, business cards, unique personalized gifts, etc.

If you want to add a little distinctiveness to your literary endeavors - throwing parties, announcing good news, or just annoucning yourself, this blog makes for interesting and educational reading.

Back to School: Grade School Students and Teens
3 August 2011

Grade School Age
Children are typically excited about their first school year experiences. Many kids have gone home and played school with their stuffed animals or imitated their favorite teacher. Here are a few items that will personalize their play and imagination.

Your Child's Fun Penmanship Stationery
Allow your child to practice what they learn at school at home.

Kid's Travel Desk
A desk of their own... just like teacher, complete with pencil cup. This desk is travel appropriate, but will also contain all their teaching goodies: pens, pencils, crayons, scissors, stickers, and more.
Pre-Teen & Teens

The pre-teen and teen alike see school as an opportunity for learning, but also for socializing with friends. The school year is filled with all kinds of things to do with friends. Here are some ideas for your pre-teen and teen this school year.

Kid's Pillowcases and Door Hangers
Slumber parties and sleepovers are a lot of fun for both boys and girls. Children of this age are searching for their personal space and belongings. Why not show your child that their personal space is important to you too. Our pillowcases give a place to reflect their personality and our door hangers clearly state where their space begins.

Pizza Party Invitations, Bar / Bat Mitzvah Invitations and Sweet Sixteen Invitations
Nothing is more social for a kid than a party. Your pre-teen or teen may have a variety of reasons to have a celebration. Perhaps you want to throw your child their first boy/girl party, or maybe your son or daughter is starting a new chapter in their lives, or your daughter is celebrating her once in a life time, sweet sixteen. What ever the occasion, celebrate it with a little personalized style.

  1. I don't think that commercial website will be effective in the form of kindle blog because kindle blog belongs to amazon.

  2. Blogs are blogs. This particular blog is offered *on* Amazon, but Amazon doesn't own it or any other blog!
