Intimate Experiences and Special Events in Denver

One thing remained the same before and after our re-design and expanded space. We have events in our shop and courtyard. We love relationships built at Idea Chíc and because of our unique building and stationery boutique. it´s a Denver area hidden gem for sure.

The first-time guests at our stationery shop in Denver (Glendale specifically), make many similar comments about our space. Comments include not knowing about, or often wondering what was going on in the Workshops building where Idea Chíc lives. The four story building looks like it might be apartments but there are more than 150 small business owners working here. The ground floor looks like retail storefronts. A few of us have retail hours but most do not. 

Idea Chíc started in this building when we launched in 2009. Julie operated her custom wedding invitation business in this building prior to expanding our social stationery and products. She changed the business name to Idea Chíc reflecting more of the brand to be built.

For years we were by appointment. The reason for appointments was simple. Our business was custom stationery consultation related. The space was also all about Making products and shipping for our eCommerce business and more recently to include stocking our specialty retailers in our wholesale business.

Also, our space is very small.

We had space upstairs, still do, so we could easily be missed.

Today we have open hours because we were able to get space behind our back wall. This space became available during the pandemic which was a good time to build a doorway. Now we are able to stay in-store creating open-hours!

One thing remained the same before and after our re-design and expanded space. We have events in our shop and courtyard. Two things! We always do letterpress demos on our 1930´s press named ¨Miss Hazel¨. We love hosting small events! Our events are intimate because of our space and also because we love the relationships made and sustained.  

Some of our gatherings are exclusive, such as our spring and fall celebrations with our Idea Chíc Card Club Members. Some are specific to a group so also invite only.  

In the spring and summer we do our regular Letterpress Printing and Process Demos. Historically we list these on Dabble.

This year we are listing these events on Meetup with expanded plans around our communities shared values in all things stationery and handwritten notes. Our group is called Denver Stationery Meetup. Join us!
