Default Shell script: echo something to stderr

Is there some native "proper" way to echo to stderr (and *only* stderr) from a shell script? I know I can copy stdout to stderr, but that's not what I want.

As near as I can figure out neither echo nor printf can do this. Am I missing some utility or sh feature?
