Southern. Masculine. Proper.
These are words that embody the essence of Oak + Ink.
Growing up in the South, good manners are engrained in every young man and a true, Southern gentleman always follows up a nice gesture with a handwritten note. The seed for Oak + Ink sprung from an endless search for professional stationery that not only reflected my personality, but gave me something that could convey more than the words I jot down. Oak + Ink strives to help revive the lost art of the handwritten note and its sentiment in the style and the class of the modern southern man. Our stationery is a creative blend of modern style with vintage artwork, stemming from inspiration I have received from the various men in my life. Each line has been named after and designed with those men and their characteristics in mind.
Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, I have always had the passion for creative works with a twist of Southern pride. When not working my day job, you can find me spending time with my beautiful bride, working on some sort of DIY project, exploring local flea markets, or grabbing a cup of joe at some small coffee shop around town.
Whatever the reason or occasion, I hope one of our collections give you
an outlet for expressing your thoughts and gratitude.
