Blue Stiggy

Timberland, Lincolnshire

Truly thoughtful and personalised eco-conscious journals, notebooks and stationery.

I love to type your amazing personalised messages using my vintage typewriter named Dorothy, to create hand painted and hand stitched stationery.

I use traditional methods and tools from times gone by, to make contemporary stationery from recycled and innovative materials that you will love now.

Give a truly thoughtful and personal gift that has real meaning between you and the recipient.

The story behind the business
Meet Blue Stiggy

Hi, I’m Michaela, founder of Blue Stiggy. I have a thing for old machines. So, bringing my vintage typewriter Dorothy and letterpress Daisy back into service to make contemporary eco-conscious stationery, is a joy!

My absolute favourite personalisations to type are those that make no sense to me at all, because that means that the words are truly special between the giver and receiver and I totally love that!

I work from my solar powered studio in the Lincolnshire countryside with my doggo (bonnie) close by. Fuelled by a loose leaf tea habit (always from my local amazing tea shop - Imperial Teas of Lincoln). I drive a 1969 VW van and love dancing and campfire cooking.

I founded Blue Stiggy after my husband had to leave his career to battle with cancer, so that I could work around caring for him and our children.
