More Than Words

Pittsburgh’s own specialty stationery store

The power of words is immeasurable. Strung together just so, words have the ability to make us laugh, cry, and feel loved. Written word comes alive with eloquent verbiage, unique paper, and beautiful designs that undoubtedly make any message More Than Words.
