Appointed Opens with the Write Stuff — a Notebook Bar in Ivy City

Notebooks for sale at Appointed.

What do Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, Charles Darwin, and Beatrix Potter all have in common? They were all notebook users! And they would have all probably loved DC’s Appointed, a paper and desk product business.

Appointed sells environmentally-conscious elevated paper products — like notebooks, planners, calendars, and writing tools — to enhance productivity and creativity (journalers and to-do list makers, see famous notebook users above).

Color choice are offered at Appointed’s “Notebook Bar”

While Appointed has operated out of a large 10,000 square foot studio since 2015, the female and AAPI-founded DC-based business recently expanded to include a new extension and retail space at its flagship store now open in Ivy City.

Workers create and customize notebooks on site at Appointed.

Our favorite reason to stop into the studio is to visit Appointed’s one-of-a-kind “Notebook Bar” where patrons can create their own perfect notebook, complete with choosing the cover color, type of paper, and whether or not to personalize with a monogram. The custom creation will be assembled on-site and ready in minutes!

Appointed is open Tues – Friday 10 am to 4 pm at 1500 Okie St. NE.
