Holiday gift favorites from the crew who knows best.
Sip and Ship believes in sharing, shopping and shipping gratitude all year long, especially during the holiday season. We are obsessed with helping you celebrate the holidays by making it easy to express your love and appreciation in three simple ways.
Share Gratitude : Tell or mail someone a compliment - expressing the gift they are to you. Our holiday cards and boxed notes are the perfect landing page for your words and delightful season’s greetings.
Shop Local : Shop at Sip and Ship on Saturday November 26th from 10am-5pm and a portion of every purchase gives back to two non-profit organizations here in Seattle (1) Mary's Place - providing a safe shelter for women and children and (2) Real Rent Duwamish - whose land we are on - honoring the indiginous people of Seattle by supporting The Longhouse & Cultural Center - a public gathering place to raise awareness through alliship and celebrate our shared community. All in-store and online purchases help to expand this impact, collectively giving back and spreading gratitude in meaningful ways.
Ship Early : Effective November 28th Sip and Ship operating hours will be modified to 10-6 Monday - Friday and Saturdays 10-5 as we continue to navigate staffing shortages and protect the health and well-being of our committed and hard working team. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to continuing to provide you with unparalleled customer service.

It’s sweater weather in Seatttle and we can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon than cozying up with a warm cup of cider and an even warmer smile —contemplating our holiday card mailing list.
Sip and Ship welcomes the orange, yellow, and red hues of autumn with a flurry of excitement for the holidays. There’s so much to look forward to and ways we hope to make your yuletide gatherings less stressful and more enjoyable.
To start, our holiday card collection is pretty special this year. Featuring women creators, BIPOC makers and local artists who we are proud to support and share with you! A few shop faves are by designer Misha Zadeh, animal lover Ana Cote of Modern Printed Matter and letterpress leagend Jai Teuber of Ilee Papergoods –with much more in our shops that you’ll want to see up close and in person. Our limited and carefully curated collections are sure to inspire you to put pen to paper and mail glad tidings!
On that note, Sip and Ship has Books of Stamps available at any service counter. Choose from a variety of holiday or everyday designs —with 20 forever stamps per sheet. Another way we strive to make your Sip and Ship visits convenient, pleasant and efficient.
We consider ourselves lucky to be the place you turn to get what you need, to make the most of your day.
If an image is worth a thousand words, then at Sip and Ship we believe, “A card is worth a million hugs.” Not only do the words matter —it’s how it makes us feel when we send them inside one.
With a card, you can let someone know how much they mean to you, no matter how far away. You may not get phone reception in space, but you can still mail a card from anywhere—especially from Ballard or Greenwood Sip and Ship.
We all know how important it is to keep people close—to remind them how much they mean to us —the number one reason behind every card featured in our shops. We guarantee you will always find the perfect card at Sip and Ship. If not, let our team know and we'll find it you!
While you’re here, order up a Pumpkin Pie or Snickerdoodle latte, savor a slice of our homemade harvest bread and enjoy a serine little spot that makes it easy to put to pen to paper –to say thanks for that amazing gift, or just to let someone know you’re thinking of them. We can even get your card in the mail, help you restock your in-home writing station with a book of forever stamps to boot!
Curating unique, fun and thoughtful ways to keep you connected with your important people is our business—-because what matters to you, matters to us.

Diana Naramore, Sip and Ship Owner and CVO, is no different from other working parents - every day she’s doing her best even on the days when she feels like she's doing her worst - especially on challenging days when she has no idea how she'll get to it all, but somehow figures out how to get it done. Her secret? The help of others. She relies on friends and family, her business and life partner, Steve Naramore, and especially members of the Sip and Ship team. Because let's face it, not one of us can do it all.

Sending and receiving handwritten letters is more than just a way to stay connected with the people you love—it’s an invitation to write yourself into someone else’s life. Each and every letter is a miniature masterpiece, a handwritten personalization that offers a glimpse of your personality, eloquence, and style while revealing something to your recipient. If you know how to write an email or text message, then writing a letter is easier than ever. Start there! Trust me, meaningful messages evolve from there, and when they arrive on paper they are a tangile reminder to your loved ones of how special they really are to you, that go beyond an emoji, Facebook or Instagram.
At Sip and Ship, we believe that there is nothing more important than connecting and communicating with others - especially on paper and through the mail. Whether you're celebrating a birthday or sending sympathy, congratulations and encouragement, we have the perfect card, boxed notes or gift for any occasion, or just because.
We look forward to welcoming you into our special world of paper goods and mailings, where you're invited to order up a coffee and discover our carefully curated collections to share the thoughtful and creative side in you.
