We take great care when developing our products to ensure that they are beautiful and practical in equal measure. Basically we make products that we would want to use ourselves. We think this is the right way to go about things. And it would seem that people agree with us; over the years we have gained many loyal customers who keep coming back for our products, and we have even picked up a few awards along the way…
2012 | Cena Czech Grand Design | Business of The Year 2011
When we received the Czech Grand Design award for our Elemento Collection,we had no idea how much this would set the tone of our future direction. Many years later, the products from this range – such as the iconic hard-covered Spiral pad with elastic pen loop, or the hand-stitched Professio jotter – continue to rank among our top sellers. Another award-winner is the Envelopa jotter, whose cover turns into a large postal envelope! And we should not forget about Simple – the cover of this jotter is made to look the same as the pages so you can start writing without even opening it! All of these products were made in Czechia using eco-friendly materials when they received these awards, and today nothing has changed.
2015 | ED Awards | bronze medal in the category of self-initiated projects for the correspondent collection carta

Our unusual letter-writing sets and postcards – and even letter-openers and stamps – appealed to both customers and expert panels. However the most important thing is that we awoke a love of letter-writing and postcard-writing in many people. Among the products introduced as part of our collection were the (possibly unique) sheet of letter-writing paper that folds up into its own envelope and the traditional Japanese button-and-string envelopes. We want writing to be a joy, and with these materials we think it will be…
2015 | Fedrigoni Top Awards | 3rd place in the corporate publishing category for the 2015 diary collection
Our diaries have also found an appreciative public, with customers returning for them year after year. We design our diaries so that they may bring joy to their users throughout the whole year. The smooth paper is a joy to write on, and the cover is strong enough to last the year easily. Diaries are available in many different formats, and come ready-accessorised, either with an elastic pen loop, concealed pouch, integrated bookmark – or all three!
Our 2015 diary range was appreciated by many happy customers, but also by the panel of judges at the Fedrigoni Top Awards, where it secured 3rd place.
