1282 Third Ave at 74th St
This haven for stationery lovers still carries one of the best, though pricey, collections of decorative paper, boxed cards (from $20) and pens (beginning at $2) in the city. Scan the wall of specialty styles for squares of Japanese washi paper printed with kimono florals ($3--$10), handcrafted lace-like sheets ($3) and rectangles of Thai banana paper ($3) before winding your way through the 20 departments dedicated to envelopes, wax seal stamps ($20) and bone folders ($8). If you're planning a bridal or baby shower, don't miss the custom printing section's massive binders of designs, much more thrilling to receive than an Evite.
