PleaseNotes is a line of affirmation-filled goods created to help you become your favorite version of you. The idea for PleaseNotes came when Founder Cheryl Sutherland was in a weird period of transition. She just quit her corporate job and knew she wanted to start something that fulfilled her, however she also knew that her self-confidence wasn’t in the place to support any new ideas that she had. She decided to work on herself through using affirmations, journalling and delving back into her personal growth practice. By reinforcing who she really was and getting clear on who she wanted to be, she realized that it was Personal Development that she had always been in love with. After arriving at this great new place, she wanted to stay focused on moving forward and support others in figuring out what their passion is and helping them overcome obstacles to realize it. That’s when the first product, the PleaseNotes Sticky Note, was created. Since then she has built out the product line to include Guided Journals, Enamel Pins, Water Bottle Labels, Mirror Decals, and Coaching Programs. They have been endorsed by changemakers such as Les Brown and Monique Coleman and have users in over 15 countries including the U.K., Laos, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Canada and The United States. Our signature item is the PleaseNotes Journal. Touted as a "Personal Growth Seminar in between two covers", it's perfect for new or experienced Journaler. PleaseNotes and Cheryl Sutherland have been featured in InStyle, Huffington Post, Forbes, Stationery Trends, Fast Company, Thrive Global, Brit + CO, Oh So Beautiful Paper and more.

Georgina Fihosy is the creative behind AfroTouch Design (the former Special Touch Designs), an Afrocentric stationery brand that is unique among black-owned businesses. Fihosy creates urban greeting cards and gift items for all occasions and seasons. She started what was then Special Touch Designs in the summer of 2015. At the time, she was on maternity leave with her second child. She was frustrated with the lack of representation in the greeting card industry. She wanted to find a card for a friend who had had a baby but couldn’t find one with a black baby or one that reflected her and her family and this beautiful occasion. Fihosy wanted something fun and urban - so she decided to make one herself. That was how her black-owned business, Special Touch Designs, was born. Fihosy is self-taught and learned how to make and design cards via Google University.

Cloth & Paper is one a Black-owned business that sells stationery. This company offers beautiful leather planners and paper planner inserts. It also sells foil dividers and exclusive stationery items. Cloth & Paper aims to change the look and feel through minimal design and luxe finishing. Established in 2015, the birth of Cloth & Paper was out of necessity! Owner Ashley Reynolds had left her corporate job of nine years. She needed to devise a plan on what her next career move would be. Reynolds has always been a paper-loving, pen-hoarding, notebook collector. Over time, her collection became overwhelming. When she got engaged to her now-husband, he requested that she sell part of her stash. He needed relief from the clutter before they moved in together. Little did he know what was in store for him. Today his wife’s Black-owned business is full of pens, paper, gold foil, and all things planner related.
