About Pei

Hey there paper friends!

 

I'm Pei and I'm the owner + founder of The Paper + Craft Pantry. My goal for this small business has always been simple: Provide our retail guests with the very best independently designed stationery and paper goods. And to host weekly creative workshops where our community can gather and learn from knowledgable instructors. 

As an avid lover of all things D.I.Y. and a small business champion, you can find her teaching workshops as well as on The Paper + Craft Pantry's blog where she shares craft projects and small business knowledge. 

When she's not running the shop or planning for an upcoming workshop, you can find her tending to her plants in her green house, trying out new recipes in the kitchen or spending quality time with her husband and two pups!

When did you begin your small business journey? 

I began my small business journal in the fall of 2013 with a small stationery line that I sold online as well as at in-person markets and events.

How did you get started?

I started small, I mean small. I knew I loved paper and wanted to dive into the stationery world so I started out with designing 10-12 stationery designs and turning them into greeting cards. Getting feedback at those in-person markets and events were so crucial to help me learn what designs resonated with people, even learn how to price my products. I really don't think this was anything anyone could have done for me, I had to do the work and get out there to learn the ins and outs of small business ownership. That's a huge reason I am a huge advocate for anyone in the small business industry, or interests in starting a business to just do it! No one else can do it for you :) 

Will you speak at my event/are you open to collaborations or sponsor partnerships?

I am always interested in supporting our community here in Austin, as well as the small business community in general. Please reach out my emailing pei@thepapercraftpantry.com for all collaboration partnerships.  

Do you offer one-on-one small business consulting?

Running a small business is a full time job y'all! And at this time, I am unable to take on any consulting roles. However, here are several small business related blog posts in our Small Business School Blog Series that I think may be helpful to you- I've linked them below for you :)

p.s. I also want to encourage you to seek out knowledge, take a small business workshop, sign up for that marketing webinar, heck, use Google! Be resourceful, join some networking groups in your city, connect with like minded people- go out, and do the work!
