Reader’s query: Lined children’s stationery.

We’ve had a couple fun reader’s queries lately and today we have another one!

“I was talking to my mother who wants my little sister to work on her handwriting (I showed her your post on your handwriting kit :)) and we were thinking that letter writing would be a fun way for her to do that.  Soo I am looking for lined children’s stationery, and I just knew you would have some good ideas!”

Of course, working for Minted, I want to recommend a few of our cards.

Bloomer Children’s stationery from Minted by Kelly Nasuta. Folk Floral by Laura Hankins. (Nice subtle lines.)The grid here provides enough guidelines for a slightly older child. Gramercy by the Social Type.


Love to Learn by Nocciola Design. If you asked Minted to drop the tutor line, this could be quite cute. I will add that lines can be added to any of Minted’s personal stationery by simply requesting they be added in the special instructions box when purchasing any design.  Here are some examples of designs I added lines to:

Talk Bubbles by Jody Wody.

Classic Monogram by Annie Clark.

Sticky Tape by Unless Someone Like You.

Flutter Patch by Mandy Gordon.

Apart from Minted, if you’re gifting to a girl, and she’s mature and feminine, the writing tablets from Felix Doolittle are lovely. Although they’re not actually lined, they come with a line guide that you place under each sheet when writing.

American Stationery also has some pretty standard options.

Lined stationery with envelopes.

Multi-tasking padded memos.

Apart from these reccomendations, I don’t have any great ideas for you. Readers, any reccomendations for our nice reader? Unfortunately, I think letters are practically a lost art! It’s hard to find letter paper because if you do get around to actually penning something, you’ll probably make it short and do it on a small card… Bah! Humbug!

  1. This article is so fitting given this post – how sad! I love writing letters and hope the art never dies out.

  2. Thanks for featuring my stationery design! Great blog too. As a former expat kid (5 years in Singapore) I can relate to a lot of the posts!
