Elum was founded in 2001 by husband and wife team Melissa and Bradley Foster, and we are proudly based in San Diego, California.

At Elum we believe in celebrating life. We’re makers and doers, dreamers and collaborators, endless learners and glass-half-fullers. We’re proud of our hand-crafted letterpress products and our award-winning design team. We work hard to maintain a culture where incredibly talented people are encouraged to create and thrive. We believe in dance parties and gift giving, tacos, beach days and laughter. Our tight-knit team is passionate about creating artisan paper goods, stationery and lifestyle collections that inspire everyone to create, connect and celebrate.

Life is woven from special moments and personal stories, Elum encourages you to share them.
