A passion for paper
Milo Paper was created in 2007 by two women who share a passion for beautiful paper. It all began when CEO Maria Kalorides, after practicing law for nearly 14 years, was drawn into the world of design by creating her eldest son’s first birthday party invitation. Always an artist at heart, Maria wasconvinced by this experience to start her own paper company. And before long she persuaded her close friend, Evelyn, to come along for the ride.
Sticklers for quality
Milo Paper is continually updating their line to bring you a steady stream of fresh products. All Milo Paper products are inspired by Maria and Evelyn’s travels and their children. “I think I first fell in love with paper when I lived in France during college. I would spend hours in bookstores looking at notebooks, agendas, fountain pens and portfolios. And ever since my children started school, I am continuously inspired to create products that all make school fun for them and motivate them to learn,” says Maria. Evelyn is always calling Maria from one place or another with an idea for something new and cool that they can create. “If something inspires me,” says Evelyn, “I get on the phone with Maria or email her, and she always works her creative magic.” Milo Paper cards and stationery are made from heavyweight environmentally friendly paper, and their notebooks have durable, scratchproof covers. Wall charts and calendars are repositionable decals that adhere without nails. And everything is produced right here in the U.S.
Fun for kids, practical for moms
All new Milo Paper designs and products must pass the “Maria test” – they must be something Maria, her husband or her children would want to use all the time. “Most of my inspiration comes from everyday life and especially my kids – I’m always trying to come up with new and creative ways to make traditional paper products and learning tools for kids more exciting.”
Today Milo Paper’s personalized paper goods and gifts for children and adults can be found in the finest boutiques in the U.S. and abroad, as well as online.
