The Paper Empire Story

Black and White Wedding Invitation with Glitter Envelope Liner 

The Paper Empire has been sharing the stationery love, creating special invitations and generally obsessing about beautiful paper and design for over 5 years. 

Our store on High St, Armadale in Melbourne is the home of our design studio, where just upstairs from all pretty things in the shop, we’re busy designing, printing and putting together all our invitations and event stationery.

In 2017 we opened our Brisbane store in a beautiful little building on James St in New Farm.  The locals informed us that many years ago it was a milk bar where they would buy lollies after school. We don’t stock lollies because we would just eat them all, but we do stock lots of sweet stationery treats (donut washi tape anyone?). 

The Paper Empire’s owner, creative director and Chief Executive Paper Obsessive is Emily Anthon. Emily has been hoarding pretty stationery in boxes under her bed since she was a small child. She is joined by an amazing team of paper lovers and talented designers. Occasionally her dog Mac also pops by, he isn't very helpful in the office but he does love pats.
