History

History

Rifle Paper Co. is a stationery and lifestyle brand based in Winter Park, Florida founded and owned by husband and wife team, Anna and Nathan Bond. The company officially launched via riflepaperco.com in November 2009. What began as a small business based out of Anna and Nathan's garage apartment has quickly grown into an international brand over the last six years.

Rifle Paper Co.'s roots are in stationery, but as we continue to grow and develop more products under the Rifle Paper Co. brand, we look forward to expanding the breadth and depth of our product line. We've also collaborated with partners like LeSportsac, Garance Doré, Puffin Books, Paperless Post, and Keds, to name a few.

We strongly believe life's personal stories and moments are best told through the gift of a handwritten card or note, and hope that our goods inspire you to share these moments with others. Please let us know if there's anything we can assist you with or ways that we can improve your shopping experience.
