The Paper Empire Story

 The Paper Empire has been sharing the stationery love, helping people celebrate special events 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 our own range of stationery products as well as hunting down the best from around the world.

In 2017 we opened our first Brisbane store in New Farm, and in 2022 we opened our new store on Given Terrace, Paddington.

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.
