About Modern Stationery Co.

Hello and welcome to Modern Stationery Co! Thank you so much for stopping by. I love stationery and am passionate about supporting the small, independent stationery designers. Be sure to check out our directory of amazing boutique stationery designers.

My name is Katie and I am the owner of Modern Stationery Co. I have always been a bit of a stationery nut, I don’t quite remember when it started, but most of my childhood memories have some sort of craft or creative activity in them.

Growing up in the early 90’s in Cairns there wasn’t much stationery variety. I think Big W was about as exciting as you could get. So I have fond memories of the end of the summer holidays, holed up with the other girls in my street (in someones air-conditioning), lovingly covering our school books in the latest teen heart throbs, making what we thought was our own beautiful stationery. As I got older and we moved south to the big smoke the stationery we could get started getting a little more exciting. I remember pastel gel pens coming out, and Officeworks, and then stores like Kikki K and Typo opened and my world changed!

I went down a bit of a creative path at school, which naturally lead me to study Graphic Design at Uni. I think this is where I first started to take note of all the amazingly talented stationery designers we have access to.

I currently live in Brisbane with my Husband, two year old daughter and our Labrador Harvey. It was on maternity leave when I was exploring my work options that I launched Modern Stationery Co. I am passionate about supporting the small independent designers that I have discovered and I hope to make their lives a little easier by introducing my humble, loyal following to them.

I am always on the lookout to expand the growing directory, please get in contact if you are looking to get your product in front of a whole new audience of potential customers.

Make sure you follow us on social media to keep up to date on all the latest stationery trends and our finds from around the web.

I love hearing from fellow stationery lovers, so please drop me a line if you discover something amazing that you think I should see.
