Legendary Stationery Mecca Pulp Is Closing Its Doors

Pulp La Brea

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Known as one of the best card shops in town, Pulp Cards & Paper is sadly shuttering. We discovered the news while driving past the South La Brea haunt this past weekend, where a huge sign notes that they’re have a "We Lost Our Lease" sale. Its unique cards and quirky stationery essentials are going for 50% off. The store's official closing date is October 30th.

We’ll miss the store’s creative collections and focus on indie artists. Below are a few favorite, one-a-kind cards that Pulp fans were most fond of.

Sweaty summer Saturday means it's time for a little + . Thanks for the @mixedplate
