Neanikon paperie:
A vintage stationary creator

I love meeting creators, people who are passionate about their work, whose voice changes when they talk about the details. This is definitely the case with Aris Sotiriou from Neanikon.

I met him at an event the first day I step my foot in Athens last week, where he showed us how he uses his vintage press to make hand-printed paper goodies. In his web shop, you’ll find cards, notebooks and paper banners with a nostalgic aesthetic.

It is amazing how a simple illustration with three colors is printed, each color separately, to create an effortless result. There’s such attention to detail, to he cuts the edges, to the hand-crafted packaging (he makes the boxes on hand as well).

I ended up getting a card and a paper banner. I can’t bring myself to sending the card, so I framed it. When I was at my mother’s, I noticed what drew me to that card to begin with. It looks like a painting from a famous Greek painter, I grew up with. It made such a nice gift to my mother.

I don’t know if I’ll take the banner out of it’s pretty box either. Too pretty. For all stationary lovers, Neanikon is like heaven.

It was such a pleasure to meet Aris and talk about the craftsmanship behind his creations. Til next time…

You can order from Neanikon paperie online or at specified stores in Greece. Follow Neanikon blog for amazing recipes with natural ingredients (I’ve tried several of them, as I don’t eat sugar or sugar substitutes and they’re different, yet tasty!) and the latest updates on his stationary line. You can also find Aris on his Instagram and Facebook.
