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 and learn from knowledgable instructors. Since opening our doors in 2015, I have had the opportunity work alongside so many other amazing small businesses and companies.
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 the fact that a portion of our profits from our in-house line is donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Black Mamas ATX.
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.
ANNA | Lead Studio + Admin Assistant
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!
MEG | Studio Manager + Designer
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.
PERRY | PT Studio Assistant
I am a college student here at UT. Some of my favorite things include shopping (which is dangerous when you work for such a cute store), my three cute dogs, plants, crafting, and the Wendy's 4for4. My favorite things in the shop include the card wall (where there is literally a card for *every* mood) and all of the plant-related things.
