Pre-Covid 19, Stay Lifted products and designs were sold exclusively wholesale and only available through our retail and licensing partners. Words cannot describe how grateful we are for those relationships that helped us grow into a premier design house and manufacturer of multicultural stationery, art, apparel, home and gift products over the past 9 years. Unfortunately, many of those businesses, large and small, have closed their doors temporarily or forever including our very first retail partner, Papyrus of the Schurman Retail Group.
We are so saddened by the devastation and many losses of life, dreams, businesses and more. At the same time, we are incredibly inspired by the awesome acts of kindness, generosity, and sacrifice taking place everyday around the world and we're extremely grateful for everyone who has reached out to us, prayed for us, cried with us, made us laugh, lended a hand, provided support, and most recently, protested with us during this very challenging time. Your love, energy and encouragement keep us LIFTED.
how you can help
Covid-19 has affected the world in a way that many of us could not have imagined. On March 15th Stay Lifted operations were forced to shut down as a result of lost wholesale business and shelter-in-place restrictions. As one of the few Black Woman Owned designer/manufacturers in the stationery & gift industry, we are determined to weather this storm by creating new ways to share and offer our collections. Now (for the first time ever!) you can order products directly from our wonderfully distinct product lines, BeYOUtifully Black, Mattie + Grace, and Fashion Meets Paper through their new branded websites.
Although we are working hard, the unforeseen impacts on our team and company have been life-altering and dramatic. Like so many small businesses, the odds of us surviving this uncertain time depend on outside funding programs and contributions so we're asking for your support. Please join, like, follow and share our brands with your friends, family, followers and associates...and if you can donate and/or contribute anything at all, click on the link below to learn how. THANK YOU so much, be well and stay lifted.❤️
