The Social Type was founded by paper and design enthusiasts Allison Brennan & Jessica Tree. They first launched their own line of foil-pressed greeting cards in 2010, and have since expanded into other paper goods and their popular matchboxes.

They opened shop in December of 2016 as an extension of their wholesale brand. Located in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles, they specialize in greeting cards, boxed stationery, desktop, and pens & pencils. They also stock party goods such as unique tableware, candles, coaster, and barware. They offer gift-wrapping services and have a beautiful selection of wrap and ribbons. Shop their own collection of paper goods, and a curated selection of Allison & Jessica’s favorite finds from around the world.

In the impersonal world of social media and gadgets, they welcome handwritten correspondence and connecting personally. Opening their store was a perfect way to share their passion with the city they love.
