The Charmpad® Story

In 2016, as I was preparing for The National Stationery Show, I made a last minute decision to add a few little notepads to our catalog. I started printing and unfortunately, my idea didn’t turn out like I had hoped. I freaked out (right before NSS!) but then I stumbled across some old plates: a little heart, mouth, pineapple, and phone...the lightning bolt hit! So I sat down and started printing. To my surprise, the new little notepads were SO cute! I can still remember saying to myself “hmmm… these look like charms.” And just like that, the Charmpad® came into fruition and is our best selling product!

Since 2016, we've been on an incredible journey, expanding our Charmpad® line to over 200 delightful designs! Little did we dream that Charmpad® would become such a cherished part of our Inclosed life. The joy we find in crafting new charm designs is immeasurable, each one capturing the essence of your unique passions and the everyday moments we're all proud to celebrate. Here's to creating more charming memories together!
