Who are Archer & Olive?


Have you ever found yourself torn between your love for art and your need for organisation? Well, fear not, because Archer & Olive is here to save the day (and your sanity)! This quirky brand is all about bringing together the worlds of creativity and productivity in the most delightful way possible.

Who is Behind Archer & Olive?

Let's start with the mastermind behind this artistic organisation revolution: Bonnie Kuhl. Bonnie is not your average entrepreneur. She's a self-proclaimed "art nerd" with a passion for all things creative. With a background in graphic design and a love for bullet journaling, Bonnie saw a gap in the market for high-quality, artist-friendly notebooks that were also functional for planning and organising.

How Did Archer & Olive Begin?

Archer & Olive was born out of Bonnie's frustration with the lack of suitable notebooks for her artistic endeavours. She wanted a notebook that could handle her watercolours, brush pens, and even the occasional doodle of her cat, Mr. Whiskers. Unable to find what she was looking for, Bonnie decided to take matters into her own hands (literally) and create her own line of notebooks.

Armed with her trusty sketchbook and a vision, Bonnie set out to create the perfect notebook for artists and planners alike. She spent countless hours researching and testing different materials, paper weights, and binding techniques. And after much trial and error (and a few accidental ink spills), Archer & Olive was born.

What Sets Archer & Olive Apart?

So, what makes Archer & Olive notebooks so special? Well, it all comes down to the paper. These notebooks are made with ultra-thick, 160gsm paper that can handle just about anything you throw at it (or on it). Whether you're using watercolours, markers, or even acrylic paint, the paper won't buckle or bleed through.

But it's not just about the paper. Archer & Olive notebooks also feature dot grid pages, which are perfect for bullet journaling and creating beautifully organised spreads. Plus, they come in a variety of stylish covers, from vibrant florals to whimsical animals, so you can find the perfect notebook to match your personality.

Archer & Olive's Values

Archer & Olive is more than just a brand; it's a community of artists, planners, and creative souls. Bonnie and her team are passionate about supporting and inspiring their customers to embrace their creativity and stay organized in the process. They believe that art and organisation go hand in hand, and that everyone has the ability to create something beautiful.

But it doesn't stop there. Archer & Olive is also committed to giving back. They regularly collaborate with artists and designers to create limited edition notebooks, with a portion of the proceeds going to charitable organisations. So not only can you indulge in your artistic side, but you can also make a positive impact on the world.

So, whether you're a seasoned artist, a dedicated planner, or just someone who loves a good notebook, Archer & Olive is the brand for you. With their high-quality materials, innovative designs, and commitment to creativity, they're sure to bring a little more joy (and organisation) into your life.
