We're a queer + chronically ill owned gifts and stationery brand that focuses on color, language and clean design. Clear communication, connection and a sense of humor drive our collections.
Founded in 2012 by interdisciplinary artist Nicole Russell, WORD FOR WORD combines her ongoing obsession with color, strong interest in economic language and a belief that art should be accessible and affordable to anyone interested.
Home of the Social Alert Button for common physical & psychological situations. We've got over 250 button badge designs, something for almost every social signifying need. They're great as tiny personalized gifts that don't break the bank. We also have a growing line of stationery, including the infamous lavender Gay Agenda check-list notepad.
Superior quality from product to packaging means a lot to us. Our pinback buttons are printed & pressed in our Los Angeles studio, as well as our hot foil stationery products and laser cut acrylics. We care about consistent high quality craftsmanship and make it a priority every single day.
We also believe in giving back. We donate a portion of our proceeds to social justice organizations (built in donation percentages are detailed in applicable product listings).
Thanks for taking the time to look around, we're happy to have you!
