Top 6 Stationery Stores In Berlin
‘Paper is good for you’, that’s what Chrish and Jenny Klose of Wednesday – Paper Works already taught us when we visited them in their manufacture earlier this year and we must say, we agree.
Since we dropped out of school, most of our work took place on the screen while we almost forgot how nice it is to actually write something down, to feel the paper and the gentle scratch of the pen underneath your fingers and create something for yourself or for others that stays.
So there are still some things like writing a letter, keeping a journal or making a photo album that we’d prefer to do in the real world instead of digitally. To get the right supplies for all these kinds of things, we assembled our Top 6 Stationery Stores in Berlin.
Schoene Schreibwaren offers a carefully selected range of stationery goods, focusing on clean and classic design. Their in-house bookbinder’s shop creates a small selection of photo albums, notebooks, portfolios and calendars. Here you can also order customized products. They aim to put the customer in contact with the product while supporting local and sustainable manufacturers. Schoene Schreibwaren has a history as a travel trader, selling their products at regional markets, block parties and trade fairs, which they still do. You can find their upcoming events here.
Open Monday – Friday: 10am – 7pm, Saturday: 10am – 6pm

Modulor is an obvious choice for this list, as here you can get most certainly anything related to stationery. Their product range seems endless ranging from paper to metal over wood to textiles.
