I love a good pep talk.
To me, giving a pep talk shows how much you care about the recipient.
While being on the receiving end of one represents how much you mean to the giver.
The power and promise held within a pep talk is what motivates everything behind this brand. It’s what drives the products that are created here.
When I started dreaming up Pretty Peptalks, I wanted to provide a flash of delight in each recipient’s day. It was my dream to one day offer a physical way to recreate how spectacular it feels to receive a pep talk—like the kind you once received from a random drunk girl in a bathroom at a club.
You know, the unexpected kind that leaves a smile on your face for the rest of the night.
Pep talks can come in all shapes and sizes and that’s what I love about them. They can be sweet, but not too sweet. Bold, but not too bold. Or tough, but not too tough. No matter how they’re delivered, however, pep talks are a labor of love.
Pep talks make everyone feel good. And that’s how I hope this brand also will make everyone feel. Which is why it’s our mission to make beautifully simple stationery perfect for all life’s pep talks.
I want to make it easier to tell those you love that you love them, to give that tough love pep talk when it’s warranted, and to reach out when it’s been way too long.
And, even if it is grammatically incorrect to smoosh pep and talk together in our name, it suits us pretty perfectly—we’re so excited to share our products with you, we’re in a rush and can’t be bothered to add that extra space between words in our name.
Besides, we think it looks better as one word anyway.
Welcome to Pretty Peptalks!
Life is full of pep talks, we think it's time someone made them pretty.
