Our Story

Pushing Envelopes is a new stationery brand on a mission to help people nurture their social health and relationships through letter writing. We work with independent artists to design beautiful products destined to become treasured keepsakes. Through art and writing, we help customers build deeper connections with themselves and invest time in nurturing meaningful connections with others. 

As an impact business, every purchase supports our Pen Pal club which uses letter writing as a tool to reduce loneliness levels in the UK. Regularly experiencing loneliness and social isolation is shown to be as bad for you as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Given that even before the pandemic, 1in5 people in the UK reported feeling often or always lonely, according to the Red Cross. It is clear that Loneliness is one of the leading public health challenges of our time.

In 2022,  we're launching our pen pal project. Head to the Sign Up Page to learn more.

We’re operating under the principle of progress not perfection. If anything is not working on the site as you would expect; don’t hesitate to contact us at  pushingenvelopes@outlook.com
