Individuality, style, endurance. At Crane & Co., they’re written into our DNA.
Today, people all over the world choose our timeless, characterful stationery to make memorable connections that matter. But the Crane story – and the principles behind it – have been centuries in the making.
In 1801 Zenas Crane founded Crane & Co along the banks of the Housatonic River in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, and we have been there ever since. We are an original American Maker and have been at the vanguard of this movement for over 200 years. Born as the United States became a nation, Crane Stationery’s identity is deeply imbued with pride in being American made. Right down to the cotton fibers from which our eponymous paper is sourced, our products are proudly made in the USA.
In the 21st century, Crane’s values continue to stand out. Like you, we hold honesty, passion and freedom of expression close to our hearts – meaningful, personal communication should be worth the paper it’s written on.
Forward-thinking individuals still swoon over our eco-friendly 100 percent cotton paper and still choose our handcrafted, personalized stationery to express their style and creativity.
