Welcome to Pear Paper Co, a small design studio based in Hampshire run by Samantha Tongue. We create elegant and understated wedding stationery with a fresh and contemporary feel, for couples across the UK.

Our aim is to provide you with thoughtfully designed paper goods to complement your vision for your wedding day, whilst making the ordering process as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Your Save the Dates and invitations should set the scene for your wedding day, one of the most important and hotly anticipated moments of your lives. It should reflect your personalities whilst also offering your guests a glimpse into the occasion to come, and get them excited for the big day.

On the Day stationery is more than just paper, it's the perfect complement to your wedding vision, tying everything together with a continuous style whilst also being practical and informative for your guests throughout the day.

The little details and finishing touches are very important to us, so all orders are treated with the highest attention to detail, love and care from the beginning of the process right through to packaging them up for you.

As a one-woman-band (with some extra family helpers during the busy season), I work from a home studio in Hampshire and take great pride in providing a personal and friendly experience for all my customers. 

Established in 2014, Pear Paper Co was the product of my love of paper and design and all things wedding-related.

I originally started out with a degree in printed textile design, which has influenced my love of pattern and details, and formed the basis of my skills and design interests. I then went on to train to teach art and textiles at college level but always had a nagging obsession to be my own boss in the back of my mind. 

After getting married in 2013 and creating all the details for our wedding day myself, I decided to put my skills to good use and Pear Paper Co was born. 

When I'm not working, I'm spending time with my husband and chasing our 1 year old son around. I love nothing more than a weekend well spent; autumnal walks; tea and biscuits in front of a film; and of course, new notebooks.. well I am a stationer after all.

For more from behind the scenes, join us on Instagram. We love to see our customers photos of their stationery on the big day too. Tag us or use the hashtag #pearpaperco to share your photos with us!
