Where To Buy Cute Stationery
As much we love our digital day jobs, we’re big fans of occasionally ditching the desktop in favour of some old-school pen-and-paper action. But finding a stationery line that’s worth your chicken scratch is a challenge in itself—this is one occasion when Office Works just isn’t going to cut it.
These are some of our favourite local and international stationery brands, perfect for weddings, birthdays, love notes, thank-yous, miss yeeewsss, and any other sentiment worthy of your very best handwriting.
Personalised stationery, journals, greeting cards, calendars, prints, and more, this American-born paper house has a legion of fans, who swoon for their gold embossed goodies. Rifle Paper Co.’s signature botanical prints are a favourite, and their easy online personalised stationery offering is the business for thoughtful, last minute gifts.
In a sea of Insta-quote fonts and embossed love hearts, Mi Goals selection of diaries, prints, and goal cards are a breathe of fresh, motivational air. Their Get Shit Done prints and diaries have a cult following and sell out as soon as they hit their virtual shelves, so keep your eyes peeled!
This cute-as-a-button LA-based stationery brand has Hipster Wedding Invite all over it. These guys love a gold polkadot, aren’t afraid of a bit of matchy-matchy gift-wrapping, and have some of the sweetest thank-you notes you’ll ever send.
A focus on gorgeous handwriting, notepads and gift cards, and Insta-worthy individualised pencils set Miss Poppy apart from paper-pack. She also makes mugs and iPhone cases that will have you squealing ‘keeeeeewt!’ like a deranged idiot.
Because it’s never too early to start nutting out your Christmas wrapping plan, Inky Co. is here to save you. An online providore of all things wrappy, this Melbourne-born online paper store has wrapping paper galore, plus all the necessary gift ad-ons, like tags, ribbons, and more.

Sydney-based online store, Shelf/Life is home to collection of cute stationery brands and greeting cards, notepads and gift-giving essentials, such as washi tape and twine. Because every adult worth their salt needs washi tape.
This totally adorable Brisbane-based personalised stationery boutique is doing some one-off wizardry on their vintage Heidelberg Planten, Bertha. We love Little Peach Co. for weddings, birthdays, or any special occasion worthy of one of their beautiful designs.
You’d need a heart of stone to not let the embossed lettering and cute prints used in Brisbane-based, Bespoke Letterpress’s designs sway you. While their stationery offering runs the gauntlet of wrapping paper, personalised stationery, and bespoke wedding invites (they’ll even do your business cards), it’s their charming greeting cards that have won us over. A combo’ of fresh graphic design and quality craftsmanship make these almost-too-pretty-to-use cards a firm fave.
If nothing gets you more excited than that back-to-school feeling of a fresh pencil case stuffed with great stationery, you’ll love online stationery mecca, Papier D’Amour (we never knew we needed a set of Kate spade NY Post Its until we discovered this online stationery paradise). A must if you want a big range of stationery to choose from.

Coronavirus Australia: Popular stationary store kikki.
K collapses during strict Australian lockdowns
One of the most popular stationary companies in the world has collapsed amid Australia’s tough lockdowns, only a year after it first went into administration.
Kristina Karlsson and Paul Lacy, the founders of cult stationary brand kikki.K, were forced to break the news of the collapse to staff this week.
The much-loved brand that sells Swedish-style calendars, pens, diaries, notebooks and cards previously went into voluntary administration last March.
The founders have blamed the most recent collapse on tough lockdown restrictions that forced the closure of at least 18 stores, the AFR reported.

The much-loved brand that sells Swedish-style calendars, pens, diaries, notebooks and cards previously went into voluntary administration in March of 2020
‘Today is a sad day. Writing this note together is a sad task, and we still can’t quite believe it’s happening – again,’ a joint statement from the founders read.
Kikki.K have also been forced to sack a large portion of its 300 employees who work in Victoria, New South Wales and the ACT.
The brand relies heavily on in-store sales in franchises in Australia and New Zealand, with online purchases proving not enough to keep the company afloat.
After collapsing for the first time 17 months ago, the business was sold to lifestyle brand Erin Condren Designs in June, who took over the reins in August.
The company – which was founded in 2001 – owed $20million to creditors and was subsequently placed into administration under Cor Cordis, following a ‘perfect storm’ of conditions that led to the shutdown.
As the never-ending cycle of lockdowns continues to cripple Australian businesses, Erin Condren decided it was too risky to continue funding the brand.
The founders have blamed the most recent collapse on tough lockdown restrictions that forced the closure of at least 18 stores and a large majority of 300 employees stood down
‘Due to the prolonged challenges from the pandemic, kikki. K will proceed into voluntary administration in order to determine the best path forward for the brand,’ EC Designs spokeswoman Tonia Misvaer said.
Citing the ‘unprecedented and extraordinary circumstances’ presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, kikki.K founders admitted the decision to close up shop would ‘profoundly’ impact on their partners, suppliers and stakeholders.
‘The loss of revenue from the forced and extended closure of so many of our stores due to the Covid pandemic as part of the government ordered lockdowns has taken a direct, massive and insurmountable toll,’ the founders wrote to staff.
The administrators, Liam Healey and Quentin Olde of global restructuring firm Ankura, will now be tasked with the tough gig of finding a buyer for the brand.
Mr Lacy and Ms Karlsson have vowed to work closely with the administrators to explore all possible options for their ‘beloved’ brand and to support employees.
The brand relies heavily on in-store sales in franchises in Australia and New Zealand, with online purchases proving not enough to keep the company afloat
They remain optimistic the business will find its feet with a willing buyer but say the collapse was a ‘tough moment’ in their 20-year journey.
The company, which boasts 359,000 followers on Instagram, is believed to have sparked the interest of a Chinese company before the deal with EC Designs.
Mr Lacy has assured customers the business would continue to operate while Ankura decided on the best way forward and corresponded with key players.
Ms Karlsson previously revealed to MamaMia that 20 years ago she had woken her husband Paul up in the middle of the night to ask what she should do career-wise.
Before the recent collapse the company had 102 global stores with its stationary stocked in an additional 250 and sold online to 147 countries (pictured, co-founder Kristina Karlsson)
The Melbourne-based mother-of-two had been living pay cheque to pay cheque at the time and lacked experience as well as a university education.
The woman behind kikki.K said that she felt stuck, and so her husband told her to grab a pen and notepad.
He said: ‘Let’s write down on paper what’s important to you. Let’s see if we can help you get some direction.’
She said neither of them knew what that list would mean, but it was the catalyst that would eventually help her begin kikki.K.

Favorite Places to Buy Planner Supplies in Australia
If you’re a fellow Aussie that’s had serious planner jealously over all the cute planner stuff the USA has (Michaels’, Jo Ann’s, Hobby Lobby etc.!) here’s some of my favorite places to buy planner supplies in Australia!
I was not compensated for this post and all opinions are my own.
Pens + stationery + cute desk accessories = <3
Their stock / brands rarely changes though 🙁
Officeworks is the cheapest physical retail store I’ve found in Australia that sells Rhodia notepads for hand lettering (they won’t ruin the brush tips like normal paper does).

Kmart has lots of folders, notepads and notebooks that look eerily similar to Kikki k…
They also have plenty of sticky notes!
I shared my Kmart planner haul in this post
Kikki K has lots of pretty planners, notebooks, pens and planner accessories. They are pricey though so I always wait for a sale.
If you sign up to their mailing list they give out vouchers for your birthday and Kikki k anniversary.

Affordable, cheap and cute = <3
They’re styles change often and tend to sell out quickly – so if you see something you like, grab it!
My mini photo album that I use as sticker storage is from the Reject Shop:

After trying a different planner each week for an entire year, the Mi Goals planner was one of my favorites!

Target has a very small stationery section and the stock doesn’t tend to change much, but there are still some occasional finds. They have clear view binders / folders which are great for sticker storage.

Target do put out planners each year but they are very basic – all of them have the same inside layouts and the only thing that seems to change from year to year are the cover styles.
Spotlight have pens you can buy individually rather than in packs. It’s great that you can try the pens out before buying, I just worry about how many other people have done pen testing and how long they’ve been sitting on the shelf for i.e. whether they going to dry out / run out of ink quickly. Spotlight also have storage boxes, notebooks etc.
Typo have planners, notepads, folders, pens etc. I did a review of one Typo’s planners in this post!
Some of my favorite highlighters are from typo including their erasable and wax highlighters

Bunbougu has many planner pen brands that are hard to find in Australia including Zebra midliners! Shipping is reasonable too 🙂

Daiso can be hit and miss – some cute stuff and some junky stuff. I picked up these binders, rainbow pens and a tin (it has a magnetic backing) that I use to store paperclips, arc disc rings etc.

Their pens are cheap and I haven’t had an issue with them – they write well. I’ve also found neon colored pens which are good for color coding.

This little store in Brisbane’s CBD is very similar to Daiso with an assortment of random stuff and a small stationery section. There’s a huge pen display with some pen brands that are hard to find in Australia plus my all time favorite pens – the Frixion erasable!
Plus it’s conveniently located close to Officeworks and Daiso…
Smiggle can be expensive but they have frequent sales.

I’m a huge fan of the ARC discbound planner system from Staples. When I purchased the discs, cover and punch a few years ago they were about half the cost of what they are now. While I do highly recommend the ARC system if you need a cheaper alternative, MAMBI have the same discs (in more colors including gold!) and a discbound punch for half the cost.
I use the ARC in conjunction with printables to create my own planner.
The main reason I prefer disbound systems is that you can add, remove and rearrange pages as often as you need!

Shameless plug – Carefully Crafted is my sister’s planner supplies shop. She has thousands of planner supplies from Happy Planner, Carpe Diem, American Crafts, Kate Spade, Color Crush, planner stamps etc.!

Sustainable Stationary: Four brands to buy in Australia
Ask anyone and they’ll tell you that saving paper will save a bunch of trees.
Yet somehow paper, and all the variations it comes in (we’re talking multi-page notepads, journals, diaries… the list goes on), is consumed in the masses, often without a second thought.
There is so much work to be done in this space – according to a 2016 report by the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, each Australian uses an average of 223kg of paper per year.
Yes, that’s a tad confronting.
So what can be done about it?
Mindfulness, and a commitment to adapt and change our practices is a good place to start. With a new year coming in hot, why not look to 2021 as the year to really make those changes.
Even if you’re not into New Year’s resolutions, writing any kind of list, journal entry, letter, or heck, even a mindless doodle can be done in a less wasteful way – that’s where sustainable stationary comes in. Australia has an array of sustainably made and recyclable stationary that can be used for any and every occasion. So, if you’re making the change now, or simply looking to stock up your sustainable stash, look no further.
Setting itself apart from your run-of-the-mill stationary companies, Karst’s main point of difference is its use of stone paper.
Yep, you read that correctly, the stone creates a strong and durable material which, in Karst’s case, makes it waterproof and naturally whiter than regular paper.
The company has also partnered with the One Tree Planted Foundation and is 100% carbon neutral.
Being one of the first big companies to create and shine a light on reusable coffee cups, straws and razors, and plastic free alternatives, Biome has long been a leader in Australia’s commercial sustainability space – and it offers an array of stationary options that are better for the planet.
Our personal favourite? Their Decomposition notebooks, which are made with 100 per cent post-consumer-waste recycled pages and printed with soy ink.
Australian-based brand Notely was born from the belief that all our actions have consequences, and that people power matters.
Thus, founder Jenica Smith began creating notebooks made from FSC-certified paper, only using FSC-certified printing methods.
The paper from each product is made from 100 per cent post consumer waste.
Little Deer Studio
This company’s stationary products are just as sweet as its name.
Not only are the Australian-made products made with eco-friendly materials, but said materials are purchased from other local small businesses that avidly support and genuinely care about the environment.
Dyani Evans, the brains behind the creative brand, literally hand makes the paper used in some of her journals, while she also uses various other recycled materials, and she even adds secondhand buttons and beads for decoration.

Nigel Austin is one of the most successful clothing manufacturers in Australia: items of his brands are also sold in Russia. The billionaire does not even want to think about an IPO – the company belongs to him and his cousin, and many key positions are occupied by other relatives
(Photo: nigeontheroad / Instagram)
Nigel Austin, a native of the port city of Geelong near Melbourne, had an interest in business from an early age.From the age of eight, Nigel spent the holidays working with his millionaire father, for example, visiting fairs in search of suppliers. Having entered college, the young man did not want to study. After loading the trunk of an SUV with trendy faded denim jackets, he drove to the local market in Geelong, but managed to sell only one, which was just enough for gas and a snack on the road. Austin went to his supplier, luckily it was his father, and agreed to cut prices. “The next week I sold all 20, made $ 200 and thought it was really addictive,” he recalled many years later.
It seemed that the fate of a wealthy heir was shining for the young entrepreneur. However, soon the young man opened his first own Cotton On store and began to earn money on his own. Now his empire owns eight brands, which produce inexpensive clothing for adults and children, underwear, swimwear, shoes and accessories, stationery and home decor. The entrepreneur has never forgotten about the strength of family ties. The huge company never went public and is still managed like a cute family business: 90% of Cotton On Group belongs to Austin himself, the father of six children from two marriages, 10% to his cousin Ashley Hardwick.Instead of boring meetings with presentations, management discusses all issues over a barbecue or during a game of cricket. However, the relaxed, family-like atmosphere in which decisions are made has a downside: the company has been fined more than once for the confusion that caused grotesque and sometimes dangerous goods to enter stores.
90,000 School education Australia 9,0001
Many immigrants are concerned about the issue of education, because they want their children to study normally in the new country.Fortunately, Australian school education is quite developed, besides, education is completely free for all citizens and permanent residents of the country. There are, of course, private schools, and their prices vary greatly, but this is a completely different conversation. However, public schools in Australia are not bad either.
Regardless of age, children spend six hours at school every day, except Saturday and Sunday, from 9 to 15. The school year begins at the end of January and ends in mid-December.A kindergarten in an Australian school is more like a kindergarten than a school. Often, children are engaged at round tables for several people, spend a lot of time playing games, sitting on the carpet, listening to the teacher’s reading, discussing what they have read, drawing, making crafts, during recess they walk on a fenced playground. Formally, there are several subjects: counting, writing, reading, sports, music lessons, dancing, a foreign language and an analogue of the “work” of our childhood. Despite the fact that the lessons are quite long, and last an hour and a half, the frequent change of activities and free movement around the class do not let the children get bored.
In the class, in addition to the main teacher, there is certainly an assistant, and sometimes several, especially during active studies. The usual number of children in a class is 20-24, which is due to the legalized ratio of at least one teacher for twelve children. Children with special needs are accompanied by a special assistant who is with them in the classroom and regularly attend additional classes according to their needs. Children who do not speak English are offered special assistance or extra attention.
Homework assignments in Australian schools are given one week in advance and include, for example, a sample of the letter or numbers studied for the current week, a thematic coloring, etc. A weekly school library visit entails two or three small books to read. In our experience, lesson preparation takes 5-10 minutes a day. The knowledge gained is not formally evaluated in any way.
From the first grade of primary school, where the load on children increases somewhat, they study quite a lot of various subjects: English, mathematics, natural sciences, social sciences, a foreign language, sports, physical education, music, arts, dance, religious education (strictly at will).There are usually four to five lessons per day, the exact length of which depends on the progress of the class.
In high school, which begins with the eighth grade, the student is faced with the task of choosing a future specialization and, accordingly, deciding on further education after graduation. In grades 8-10, students consistently get acquainted with all possible areas of study. The grading system is similar to that in primary school. The amount of homework, according to the instructions of the Department of Education, is about fifteen hours a week.The assessment of the acquired knowledge includes a variety of tests, essays and presentations. In grades 11-12, which are critical to final graduation marks, the student is required to select and study six subjects. A rather complex system for assessing the knowledge of a graduate involves the writing of several mandatory large-volume papers that are tested at the Australian state level.
Transfer of a student to an Australian school can be carried out both by the parents and by means of special transport.Unlike independent schools, which often have their own transportation system, most students use inter-school routes or public transportation. Travel to them is free (the school provides a special annual pass).
All schools in the state have their own uniforms (winter, summer, smart and casual), which can be purchased at the school store. There you can also purchase the necessary school supplies (in a set). School clothes in common school colors (if the school’s uniform policy is not strict) and a variety of stationery can be bought on your own in public stores.Parental costs of providing schoolchildren with the things necessary for learning are partially compensated by the state. The amount of compensation is about $ 400 per year for an elementary school student and twice as much for a high school student.

90,000 “With a heavy heart.” Facebook users in Australia were left without news
Photo author, Reuters
Facebook announced that it made this decision “with a heavy heart”
Facebook social network blocked access to the news for its users in Australia.This means that from Thursday on the territory of the country in this network it is impossible to view the messages of the media, as well as “share” their content.
In addition, Facebook users outside Australia have lost access to Australian media.
The social network’s decision is prompted by the desire of the Australian authorities to force Internet giants such as Facebook and Google to pay for news stories that are available on these platforms.
On Thursday morning, the Australians discovered that news published in the media was no longer available on Facebook.
The network also blocked the pages of several government agencies, including medical and emergency response agencies. The company later explained that it was done in error.
The Australian government has sharply criticized Facebook’s actions, saying it demonstrates “the enormous market power of these social digital giants.”
Millions of followers
Australian Treasury chief Josh Friedenberg said the news ban would have “huge implications for local communities.”About 17 million Australians use Facebook every month, and major Australian media outlets such as ABC and the Sydney Morning Herald and The Australian have millions of followers.
Photo author, Facebook
The ban touched on some government pages, although social media say it is a mistake
According to Friedenberg, the government still intends to pass a law introducing fees for Facebook’s use of news content. however, the authorities “would like [the network] to work in Australia.””I think that these actions today are not justified, they are making a mistake,” the official said.
Earlier, Google threatened to block access to its search engine in Australia if such a law is passed. However, in recent days, the company has changed tactics and signed content payout agreements with three of Australia’s largest media outlets. Google also agreed to pay News Corp, Rupert Murdoch’s media corporation, to use content from its sites.
