About Us

The Paper Empire has been at its location on the wedding and design precinct of High Street in Armadale Melbourne since 2003.

Our High Street HQ are the base for operations which include our two retails stores (Melbourne and Brisbane), design studio, our online store, pop up shops, laser cutting and creative workshops.

The Paper Empire’s owner, creative director and Chief Executive Paper Obsessive is Emily Anthon, who has always been fascinated by the beauty of paper for life’s memorable moments. Emily has been hoarding pretty stationery since she was a small child. Emily is a graduate of Swinburne University, where she majored in Film and Television and also studied typography and design.

At The Paper Empire we believe that there will always be a place for beautiful paper and the thought and care it represents. In the digital age, is there anything that matches the delight of receiving beautiful invitations in the post, a handcrafted gift made with love, or a good old fashioned thank you note?

We’ve created a treasure trove of invitations and paper craft for all occasions and our talented and creative team is here to help you create the perfect look for weddings, special birthdays, and significant religious ceremonies such as bar mitvahs, bat mitvahs and christenings. We have a range of beautiful paper, gift wrapping and embellishments including ribbons, tapes, stickers and stamps, that we’re constantly adding to with the latest and loveliest trends from around the world.

The Paper Empire team love to work with people looking for something special. If you don’t see what you want in our shop or online store, contact us and we will source, refer or create it for you.
