Founded in 2015, The Paper + Craft Pantry is a retail stationery shop and workshop studio in Austin, Texas. We provide our retail guests with the very best independently designed stationery and paper goods. We host monthly creative workshops where our community can gather and learn from knowledgable instructors.
We feel so honored that we can stock our retail shelves and online shop with products from over 100+ different artists and small businesses from all across the country and even the world!
Our Paper + Craft Pantry in-house stationery and product line was released in November 2018 and we've grown our first mini collection into a product line with hundreds of SKUs. A portion of our profits from our in-house line is donated to two local non-profits - the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Black Mamas ATX.
I'm Pei and I'm the owner + founder of The Paper + Craft Pantry. My goal for this small business has always been simple: Provide our retail guests with the very best independently designed stationery and paper goods. And to host weekly creative workshops where our community can gather, learn and have fun!
I started my small business journey in 2013 designing cards and selling them on Etsy as well as at local pop up markets. In 2015, I officially opened the doors to The Paper + Craft Pantry's brick + mortar location in East Austin. I have had the opportunity work alongside so many other amazing small businesses and companies I love!
I design all of the products for our in-house stationery line. All of our cards are printed at a local, family-owned print shop in our neighborhood and all other paper goods are made in the USA. Something I am really proud of is being able to make an impact through our shop through our give back initiatives.
I love serving the world by creating a space where everyone who walks through our doors feel welcomed, loved and supported. It’s also pure magic when someone finds the perfect card for their loved ones or when someone lights up after learning something new in one of our workshops.
The things I am most passionate in life are paper (obviously), travel, food and trying to squeeze in a nap whenever I can. Outside of The Paper + Craft Pantry, you can find me spending time with my husband, baby girl and two pups.

When I'm not at my favorite stationery shop, you can find me hanging out with my dog, watercoloring or going on a run around Austin! There are so many great trails and neighborhoods to run through. The things I'm most passionate about in life are supporting small locally owned businesses (like P+CP) and creativity! I feel successful if at the end of the day, I've been able to make something with my hands. And getting to work at P+CP has given me the opportunity to help others find what they need to be creative in their lives too!
I am mostly known for my love of lettering, sushi, and quirky greeting cards. I love serving the world by making art and sharing it with others. It brings me joy to create and add a little magic to someone's day. The things I am most passionate about in life are creating, music, trying new food, and just enjoying the little things! When I am not at the P+CP, you can find me exploring the city, sipping on an oat milk latte at a local coffee shop, watching movies, or hanging out with my cats.

When I'm not at the Paper+ Craft Pantry, I'm always picking up new crafts! My favorite hobbies are crocheting, knitting, embroidering, illustrating, writing, scrapbooking, and reading. I love that I can work at a place that supports my creativity and surrounds me with other wonderful and talented people. If I'm not crafting, I'm probably napping, hanging out with friends, or eating pasta and sushi!
