DOS ESTRELLAS is an online boutique based in Long Beach, California.
We specialize in what we call RUTHLESSLY POLITE STATIONERY : we’re not your mama’s stationery shop! (unless your mama’s cool… or orders from us 😉 We make kinda weird but pretty great greeting cards, stationery, unique wedding and party invite sets, baby shower invites, as well as party decor kits for bad-ass parents.
Everyone involved with Dos Estrellas is L.A. born and raised – Where we come from has A LOT to do with how we see the world and what we put back into it. Our designs are inspired by art, love, our culture, spooky hearts, vintage design, modern social ideals and everything in between. We make a point of using local sources and vendors in every step of our process. We’re 100% Latinx and are proud to share our culture with anyone that appreciates our ideas of gorgeous.
Our designs have been around since 2000 and our artwork cards have been a massive hit across California including Comikaze Expo LA, WonderGround Gallery at Downtown Disney (Anaheim), and Memento Mori Curiosity Shop in Echo Park.
We started as the paper goods section of Serpenthes.com back in 2006.
It began with notes sold alongside artwork until February 2014: At that time – with a collection of over 50 designs, 5 wedding suites, and almost a dozen Holiday card selections – it outgrew it’s home and needed a place of it’s own along with a little bit of a re-brand to separate itself from it’s sister site. It began as Line 117 Paper and was re-branded to Dos Estrellas (Two Stars) in September 2016.
WE LOVE TREES
Seriously! We understand the importance of it and are all about conserving trees and using paper responsibly. Everything created at DOS ESTRELLAS uses stock made from sustainable forests as well as partially or totally recycled materials.
A lot of our designs are DIY – which means you print it yourself. Printing yourself reduces the amount of paper waste because you print only what you need. We also set up our PDF designs to maximize the amount of space per sheet!
Humans and animals are great too – we make it a priority to use minimal packaging and plastics free of acids or harmful chemicals.
QUALITY CONTROL TO MAJOR TOM
We admit we’re total perfectionists. Aside from using environmentally responsible paper, we want our stuff to last. Our cards and stationery are printed with acid free, archival ink that’s guaranteed to stay bright for decades. All card decoration or glitter accenting is done by hand, making each piece a unique miniature piece of art! Our glitter accents are done with a top quality, micro-glitter gel : particles won’t fall off and stay in your carpet or clothing for eternity.
Every single item is double-checked before leaving our Long Beach studio. Quality is key!
