You may not be aware of this, but paper lovers exist…They’re people who have an unbridled love of the smell of a fresh magazine or the touch of an uncoated card. They collect paper cuttings, wrap gifts as if the wrapping is more important than the gift itself and generally go the extra mile to find the perfect card!
In December 2014, two friends and paper enthusiasists Gabi and Bella began a side project. Both girls were bored with their typical 9 to 5 jobs and were tired of spending their days in grey offices. It all began with ‘Blessing & Honour,’ locally designed and printed greeting cards and gift wrap, made using 100% recycled card and envelopes and created using 100% renewable energy. Within a few weeks Gabi and Bella had shipped their paper across the nation, and soon thereafter, the world! After received many words of encouragement, it suddenly seemed that their daydream of having a dedicated space could come to life in a very real way. Fast forward 12 months, and Blessing & Honour has turned into a bricks and mortar shop now called “Honest Paper” – a specialty stationery shop for paper lovers and stationery lovers alike.
Each piece is chosen purposefully by Gabi and Bella – a curation of beautiful & useful items. Stocking mostly local & Australian brands, with hopes to support and release up and coming designers, artists and creatives in their endeavours. The owners and designers say that their beautiful space is “the kind of shop where you go into with one specific item in mind to buy, only to wind up walking out half an hour later with enough stationery to fill a small office!”
Add a little extra love to your next gift with a beautiful piece from Honest Paper!
