Paper Papaya Co.  

⋒ Making Adulting Easier

⋒ Hospitality Driven - All Are Welcome

Paper Papaya Co. was female founded in the midst of a pandemic to bridge the gap between the practical & beautiful. Products in our shop are designed by us, and also sourced from amazing business owners we are proud to stand behind! We use a local print shop & in house production for our stationery, and paper products. Paper Papaya Co. prioritizes working with brands that take some stress off the environment by choosing beautifully curated products to reduce waste & cut down on the amounts of chemicals used. 


In addition to our online shop, Paper Papaya Co. provides custom wedding & event invitations, branding collateral (branding kits, business cards, merchandise, paper products, etc). We would love to work with you to make your project come to life! Please reach out via the contact page for custom projects!

I spent a good portion of my twenties being a ‘professional adult’, nannying, & being a personal assistant/household manager. Growing up I always had a love for paper, day planners, time management, & lifestyle hacks! A lot of my professional background has also revolved around aesthetics, set design, art installations, and interior design - I just love when things are clean, crisp, and pretty. Paper Papaya Co. is a business that makes room for my authentic and sometimes nerdy self to help others get the most out of life, and making it pretty in the process! I’m currently living in Belmont, NC with my husband & our two pups just living the millennial dream (whatever that is).
