About Us


Hi, thanks for visiting!
I’m Monika!

I’m the owner and designer at Salt and Paper (formerly Owl Paper Goods). Over the past four years I have been honing my craft in rubber stamp design, with a specialty in portraiture. I have a fine arts degree from Ryerson University. 

I made my first couples stamp for my friend Kelly and her husband Evan, a unique little gift to present to her for her wedding. I loved the process of making a special gift, and I thought maybe someone else would like gifting it as well. The shop has quickly grown and we now offer a wide variety of stamps and digital illustrations.

Each custom design is lovingly hand drawn by me, and I take the time to capture all of the special features that make your face unique. I don't use any apps or guides to create my designs, the stamps are designed with pencil and paper ... and the ornaments are free hand designed on my tablet. Every Salt and Paper design is unique, and custom crafted.
