The Paper Empire
The Paper Empire has been sharing the stationery love, creating special invitations and generally obsessing about beautiful paper and design for over 5 years.
In 2017, they opened their Brisbane store in a beautiful little building on James St. in New Farm. The locals informed them that many years ago it was a milk bar where they would buy lollies after school. They don’t stock lollies because they would just eat them all, but they do stock lots of sweet stationery treats.
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 was joined by an amazing team of paper lovers and talented designers.
Envelopes, Greeting Cards, Prints, Stickers, Workshops, Wedding Invitations, Birthday Invitations, Special Occasions
“I stupidly walked in to the store half an hour before they were even open this weekend, and the lovely lady served me without batting an eyelid – only later did I find out that I had literally followed her in. I love this shop – best greeting cards in town, and stationery for every person’s aesthetic. Would recommend!” – Grace McCarter
Smiggle, the world’s hottest stationery brand, was born in 2003. The ultimate creators of colourful, fun, fashion-forward stationery. The first Smiggle store opened in Melbourne, Australia and word spread fast about the bright pens, notebooks and gadgets that filled a tiny, but very special place.
The concept took off and the company soon hit 20 stores, where it caught the eye of the Just Group – Australasia’s most exciting fashion & apparel retailer. Smiggle joined the Just Group in August 2007 and has not looked back since.
In 2008, Smiggle jumped the seas and opened its first international store in New Zealand. In 2011, Smiggle expanded into Singapore, and in 2014 Smiggle opened its doors in the UK, and in 2016, Smiggle says hello to Malaysia and Hong Kong. It’s all part of the grand plan to be the world’s most exciting and famous stationery brand.
