About

Smarty Pants

Hi. My name is Mary Kate. Welcome to my shop! I print things on paper.

My love for printing stationery started way back in 1989 when I first learned how to use a Riso Print Gocco, a small screen printing machine, in my after-school art classes. In 2005, I bought my own Print Gocco, and started designing cards. Today, Smarty Pants Paper Co. creates a wide selection of playful and nostalgic products in addition to cards. You can choose from art prints, coasters, washi tape, gift wrap, and more! Vivid, clean illustrations are printed using methods that have a tactile quality and a hand-printed aesthetic, such as Risograph, letterpress and screen printing.

I'm adding new designs frequently, so be sure to check back often, and follow me on facebook and instagram (@smartypantspaper) to get updates on new products that are in the works.

Thanks for stopping by!
