Frankie & Claude is a thoughtfully designed stationery & lifestyle brand that celebrate life's moments and reminds you never to take yourself too seriously. Whether it's your best friend's birthday, a new baby, graduation, or simply time to treat yo' self - you can find something special for every occasion. We're so much more than stationery. From hand lettered greeting cards that exude wit and charm, to gold foil educational art prints, to our pretty + functional matchstick jars, you will find that special something at Frankie & Claude.

We are so honored to have been featured on numerous websites, print and media outlets, including The Paper Chronicles, Discover Paper, One Wed and She's Charming to name a few, as well as Good Morning America, Stationery Trends Magazine, and Gift Shop Magazine!


I am Sam Bearbower, the owner + designer behind Frankie & Claude.

After graduating from art school I took a detour from design and worked in the legal field for nearly a decade. When I first heard of Etsy I thought, what a fun weekend hobby to help pay for my Portland food-truck addictions! Inspired by my passion for design and creativity, what began as a weekend hobby quickly blossomed into my successful and growing business, Frankie & Claude.

Fall 2015 marked an amazing time - I quit my paralegal job to run my creative business full-time, and could not be happier. We have big things in store, so stay tuned!
