about us

Affectionately dubbed as the "mini major company you know well but never heard of", Stay Lifted is a premier manufacturer of multicultural stationery, art and gift products featuring the signature style of Founder & Fashion Illustrator, Charissa Ware, and our dynamic team of creatives and forward-thinking innovators.  Based in southern California, our current product offerings include Greeting Cards, Notecards, Art Prints, Invitations, Calendars, Wine+Gift Tags, Candles, Accessory Bags, Drinkware, Totes, Gift Sets and newly added Face Masks.  All products are eco-friendly and made in the US with respect for environmental sustainability.  


Pre-Covid 19, Stay Lifted products were sold exclusively wholesale and only available through our retail, licensing and private label partners.  However, the corona virus has affected the world in a way that many of us could not have imagined and unfortunately, many of those companies (large and small) have either changed businesses or closed their doors temporarily or forever.  Words cannot describe how grateful we are for those relationships that helped us grow into a beloved design house and manufacturer over the past 9 years.

As one of the few Black Women Illustrators and even fewer Black Women Owned manufacturers in the stationery & gift industry, Charissa has been determined to weather the Covid-19 storm by creating new ways to offer our product lines and design expertise beginning with the launch of our very own direct-to-consumer brands.  Now (for the first time ever!) you'll be able to order products directly from our wonderfully distinct NEW collections through their branded websites below beginning November 1st, 2020. In the meantime, your can purchase select items at Products 4 Us and Papyrus.
