Some brands don’t have incredibly grand visions or dramatic ethos's - they simply exist to make every day a little bit brighter. With a “goal to create quality products that bring beauty to the everyday,” Rifle Paper Co is one of those brands that never fail to make us smile.
Founded in 2009 by former freelance illustrator Anna Bond and her fiancee Nathan, Rifle Paper Co. is one of our favourite brands of all time. Read on to discover more about:

At the centre of Rifle Paper Co. exists Anna’s beautiful hand-painted illustrations. Well known for her signature floral and whimsical creations, it was in designing her own wedding invitations that Anna realised her true passion for this style of design; this sense of character is still reflected in the brand today.
“I started this brand creating products I loved and would be proud to use myself. Ten years later, I still feel that way. What makes me happiest is hearing how much joy our products bring to people such as a colorful pen to liven up your work desk or a card that is used to bring a note of encouragement to someone who needs it most,” describes Anna.
Rifle Paper Co.'s production occurs in their small studio. All pieces are hand-painted and then sent to photoshop for design. With around 20 full-time employees and 40 part-time employees, all products are manufactured locally before being shipped out across the world.
