About

Boss Dotty is a stationery and gift company celebrating the everyday, with fingers crossed. Our playfully illustrated products — inspired by resilient women, perpetual daydreamers and cautious optimists — are designed and packaged by hand in Greenpoint, Brooklyn with lots of love and attention to detail.

  • Theresa Berens is the designer, illustrator, shipper, warehouse manager and reluctant bookkeeper behind Boss Dotty, a labor of love that would not be possible without pop-in help from a wildly supportive band of family and friends in Brooklyn and Nebraska. Her creative, independent and resilient grandmother Dorothy is Boss Dotty’s namesake.

  • Boss Dotty products have appeared in more than 650 stores worldwide — in boutiques, museums, and bookstores including The Strand, the National Museum of Women in the Arts and The Whitney Museum Shop — and with national and international retailers including Urban Outfitters, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Barnes & Noble and Paper Source. Learn more about our wholesale program here
