Hand craftsmanship is a rare attribute today; however, it continues to define Crane’s products. Approximately 40 pairs of hands physically touch an average personalized stationery order on its journey through our factory. From engraving plate making, to gold leafing, to hand painted bordering, to ribbon tying and envelope lining, each specialized step is an art form all its own, setting Crane Stationery apart and ensuring your message will leave a lasting impression every time.
