Stationery is growing along with everything else that is growing today. It’s the reason why it appeals to people of all ages. One such interesting name in the stationery world is Salt x Paper, a premier stationery brand in Malaysia that has been offering each customer intimate and fresh-feel products, as far as its stationery are concerned. The owner of Salt x Paper shares her journey in the world of stationery with TallyPress and how she turned Salt x Paper into the stationery brand that it is known for today.
Who’s behind Salt x Paper?
Chrystin is the reason why Salt x Paper exists today. While preparing for the birth of her son, Chrystin had to relocate to her husband’s hometown and in doing so, she had to quit her job as a client servicing exec in advertising field. This was when Chrystin rediscovered her love for stationery and anything that involves paper. As an obsessive notebook and stationery collector, Chrystin then decided to team with her husband, Aaron Lam, who’s also the main designer and creative director for Salt x Paper.
Why Salt x Paper Was Born?
Founded in December 2015, the purpose of Salt x Paper was to create beautiful stationery and anything that can be created from paper. Chrystin wanted people to have the opportunity to enjoy beautiful designs and pretty illustrations when it comes to stationery. The founder also wanted to educate the public about the worth of art, designs and the sentimental value of making memories with pen and paper.
What Does Salt x Paper Offer?
As an art-appreciator, Chrystin enjoys the work of very talented designers and together with them, the designs from Salt x Paper were created. A range of stationery created from paper is what you will find at Salt x Paper, which include notebooks, cards, lettersets, wrapping paper and many more.
Salt x Paper today offers A5 and A6 notebooks with original illustrations created by 3 different designers. What’s special about these notebooks is that they are sewn-bound, which means they can be opened flat that makes writing and drawing on the notebook a more comfortable experience. Only premium grade paper is used, so that the pages have a thicker and smoother surface, which gives way for a variety of tools to be used on it.
The Future of Salt x Paper
The founder of Salt x Paper is looking forward to making her stationery brand a platform for designers and artists to showcase their work. The mission of Salt x Paper is also to make pretty notebooks available in the market, so that people will be inspired to write, dream and draw more. Furthermore, Salt x Paper is hoping to expand to more markets overseas, which is why it is currently looking for distributors worldwide. The founder would also like this stationery brand to be further instated in a larger range of stationery in a brick and mortar shop.
Why Should You Give Salt x Paper A Try?
There are many reasons that make Salt x Paper different from the other stationery brands. The products of Salt x Paper are personalized as they are originally hand-drawn and illustrated by different designers with different styles. According to the founder, the main purpose of having something that comes from Salt x Paper is to have a set of beautiful stationery that will inspire you to enjoy the art of recording memories and expressing thoughts.
