Stationery Stop

The Stationery Stop is located in Portland, Oregon. The Stationery Stop specializes in the sale of high-quality stationery, writing instruments, and also accepts custom orders for stationery and invitations. It was opened by Sydney five years ago, and Sydney currently operates the original store in Portland.
Recently, Sydney formed a partnership with a friend, Laurie, who lives in Seattle, Washington. Laurie and Sydney recently opened a second Stationery Stop location in Seattle, which Laurie manages.
Both Sydney and Laurie are interested in starting a Web for The Stationery Stop, so their existing customers can submit stationery and custom orders online. They are also hopeful that the Web site will help them reach new customers that may not live near a Stationery Stop location in the Pacific Northwest.
