Shortstack is contemporary fine paper goods for everyday and social occasions. Created and operated by designer and artist Allison Henry, it is inspired by life's surrounding beauties and encourages the lost art of hand-written correspondence. A lot of time and energy is spent on rethinking the way Shortstack functions within a small carbon footprint. I am dedicated to maintaining an environmentally sustainable studio and carry the responsibility of spreading the same awareness to others. All stationery is printed on a tree-free 100% cotton paper. All products are printed and hand-assembled in the USA and recycled packaging is used in shipping whenever possible.

So what's with the name? Mostly inspired by an incredible fondness for pancakes and a nickname given to me by a dear friend...
And who doesn't love an adorable stack of pancakes? In Letterpress!
