History & Mission

The Service Bureau Fine Stationery and Gifts can trace its roots back to 1930, when it started out as a subsidiary of the The St. Louis Service Bureau, a volunteer organization that provided organized dance lessons for young adults as well as custom invitation services. In 1965, the stationery segment became an independent business and continued the tradition of donating profits to local charities.

Known for providing superior personalized service, The Service Bureau Fine Stationery and Gifts is now among the finest retailers in St. Louis, offering in-stock and special order stationery as well as fine gifts. Three generations of customers have entrusted their most important life events to our expert stationers, and we are now a destination for brides who depend on our staff’s vast experience and knowledge of proper etiquette. In addition, shoppers will find a carefully curated selection of gifts for men, women, baby and home.
