Hello all!

I'm having a very hard time finding examples of beautiful corporate/company stationery online. I need some inspiration! If you have a link to a beautiful piece of corporate stationery, or just want to post an image, please do!

The paper stuff you write on, the stuff you buy from a stationer, is spelled "stationery". Things that don't move are stationary. I suppose one could have stationary stationery, as long as it doesn't move.

Hehe. Ok. Ok.

You might want to search for letterpress and letterhead and maybe bespoke using google.

Oh, but I have. The problem is I'm not looking for letterpress work per se, as I find that the letterpress aesthetic is a little more "Mrs Eaves" than I'm looking for. I'm hoping to find stationery with a more modern, contemporary, clean look. Are there any studios that specialize in this and have examples in their online portfolios perhaps?

What about searching etsy.com? I've seen lots of personalized note cards, business and such on there. May not be exactly what you're looking for but it could work for inspiration.

First, search in google for "Corporate Identity".
Then, you should start looking in Flickr... like here, here and here.
Finally, take a look at AIGA Design Archives.

Hope this will help... :)

THIS BOOK is quite good. Not huge but a wide variety of samples in full color and all mainly corporate ID with business cards and letterheads.

Typophiler Nancy Sharon Collins does beautiful work with stationery, though it looks like more personal and advertising work rather than corporate.
