Sending The Kids To School This Month? Prep Them At These Washington, D.C. Stationary Stores

It’s that time of year again when whether they’re seven or seventeen, it’s time to send the kids off to school! However, you don’t need to send them off empty-handed – you can help them feel their most confident by restocking their bookbags at these stationary stores.

This September, head to these stationary stores near your 1331 Maryland apartment that are full of everything from pencil cases to ballpoint pens to backpacks. These well-made items are worth every penny, as they’re made to last through school years to come!

Paper Source, located at 3019 M St NW, Washington, D.C. which is 11 minutes from your 1331 Maryland apartment, is a chain for decorative paper, crafting supplies and quirky gifts, plus custom stationery.

The first Paper Source opened in 1983 in Chicago, Illinois as an elegant showroom for handcrafted paper from around the world. Now, they have 129 stores across 25 states as they work to create, craft, color, cut, shape and print with paper of all sizes, styles and artisanal materials. They take care to ensure their products put the environment first, focusing on sustainability and social responsibility while upholding their commitment to exceptional, premium quality.

Fahrney’s Pens, located at 1317 F St NW, Washington, D.C. which is six minutes from your 1331 Maryland apartment, is a family-owned boutique specializing in high-end writing instruments, stationary and watches since 1929.

Throughout the years, Fahrney’s Pens has supplied fine writing instruments to some of Washington D.C.’s most prominent officials. For many years they sold Pentel Pens, which were among John F. Kennedy’s favorites, to offices in the White House and on Capitol Hill. Longtime customers include Rep. Henry B. Gonzalez (D-Tex.) and columnist George F. Will of the Washington Post. After his ordination as Pope in 1978, Odell Chappell sent the late Pope John Paul II a tiny white Chalanna fountain pen trimmed in red and gold to accompany his papal wardrobe.
