About Hello World Paper Co. & Stamps



Hello World Paper Co. is an online stationery and stamp shop started in 2014 on the idea that new beginnings are a time for happiness & reflection.  

At Hello World Paper Co., we want to help you celebrate your new beginnings.  Whether you are getting married, just bought a new house, are launching a new business, or just simply bought a new book, we have a product to make your new beginning more real and exciting!  Not only do we help you celebrate these new beginnings, but we give back too.

With every purchase you make,  we are giving a portion of our profits towards building a school through Pencils of Promise.  We hope to have all the funds raised to build the school by the summer of 2022.  I know that seems far away, but it's a WHOLE school!  With your purchase we are one stamp (step) closer to changing the lives of hundreds, even thousands of children so thank you!

A note about the Owner and Creative Director at Hello World Paper Co.

Kelly Parker Smith is a retired third grade teacher who had a big dream to make pretty things and help people in need.  Kelly's love of a simple life with moments of total awesomeness has spilled over into rubber stamp collections and laser engraved goodies for people who just love to stay home and cozy up under a blanket! Kelly creates all of the designs herself working with pen and ink, typography, watercolor, and pattern design, then she lets the laser take over. Kelly lives in Belleville, IL (20 minutes outside of St. Louis, MO) with her husband, three boys, and their rescue kitten, Katniss.
