We pride ourselves in making products you’ll not only want to use, but to keep. We also recognize the environmental impact we have when manufacturing paper-based products. With this in mind, we are active to limit our impact and make environmentally-conscious choices.

Our Paper—is carefully selected for its smooth, durable quality and for the way it is responsibly made. Our paper is produced in an American paper mill that prioritizes sustainability and some of the features include being acid and chlorine-free, which means it's friendlier to our waterways. Additionally, it is made with 2/3 renewable energy and more than half of the energy to make our paper is made on-site with renewable biomass and zero-emission hydroelectric. 

Our Bookcloth—one of the core materials of our product line is also proudly USA-made which means low-shipping impact and it is compliant with the latest EPA standards and guidelines. The material is completely biodegradable and constructed from a cotton-blend material making it odor-free and pH neutral. 

Our Packaging—we’re actively changing our packaging materials and methods to reduce our environmental footprint by limiting single use plastic and choosing materials that are renewable and biodegradable. Our labels, tape, and boxes are all made from recycled materials.

Following an exhaustive yet unsuccessful search to find well made and refined desktop products that are manufactured in the U.S., Suann decided to create our own. Following 18 months of research, prototyping and design, she started Appointed in March 2015 by way of a Kickstarter campaign that raised seed funding to launch the company. As a graphic designer and former founder of SIMPLESONG Design, Appointed brings together Suann’s love of paper, organization and beautiful design.
