Our brand + business development expertise includes product development, manufacturing & distribution and retail. 
We are excited about new beginnings in 2021 including AMAZING new collaborations (tooting our horn) and the launch of our first two direct-to-consumer brands under the Venture Studio arm of Stay Lifted. 
Holiday Toast Greeting Card


Stay Lifted began way before it's official launch in 2011. When our Founder (then stay-at-home mom) was planning her son's baby shower and had exhausted every local store without finding any ethnic baby announcements that reflected her style and voice, she designed and created her own which led to designing and creating more things for more people. From there, Stay Lifted evolved and became a notable designer and supplier of stationery products through our retail, licensing and private label partners such as Papyrus, Fine Stationery and other premium brands. Our roots in art + illustration, graphic design, and fine paper products are the inspiration (and experience) fueling our current ventures, Beyoutifully Black and Fashion Meets PaperFor information on wholesale, collaborations and business opportunities, please contact us.

Boss Lady Collection | Beyoutifully Black
Macarons Greeting Card | Beyoutifully Black

Beyoutifully Black's debut collections feature the artwork and designs of Stay Lifted's Founder & Fearless Leader, Charissa Ware. The brand represents a love of self and a love of culture through art, inspirational collections, and community. 



A fabulously fashionable & fun collection of greeting cards and fine paper products that represent the notion that each moment is a memory rich in detail and character and that life is too abundant to compromise the delightful ride with digital nods, generic messaging or predictable imagery.
