Salt x Paper is birthed out of our love for paper goods and passion to preserve ideas, memories and stories.

I personally love notebooks, cards, lettersets, wrapping paper – anything paper-related. I also love designs and pretty illustrations, and we are currently working with 3 talented designers to feature their amazing art on the cover of our notebooks. All our items are made in Malaysia.

We want to offer the opportunity for people to own pretty notebooks at affordable prices, and also to encourage people to write and draw or even journal – that is to express their feelings and ideas on paper. Once the ink touches the paper, the thought is captured forever. That is the amazing thing about ‘hardcopy’.

Apart from the amazing original illustrations, our notebooks feature sewn-bound pages for comfortable writing/drawing as the pages open flat. We also use premium grade paper of 100gsm, so that you can indulge in writing/drawing in luxury.

We hope to enhance your experience of preserving those ideas, memories and stories with our range of Salt x Paper products.


My name is Chrystin Choo. I’m an obsessive notebook & stationery collector who hoards pretty paper goods and will never walk out of a stationery shop empty-handed. I enjoy artistic pursuits and being around creative people. I’m married to Aaron Lam, the world’s most talented graphic designer (in my humble opinion, hehe) and he makes my world beautiful. When I’m not in a stationery shop, I enjoy being on a film set (behind-the-scenes, of course) crafting movie magic.


Salt x Paper’s notebook cover designs are all collaborations with some of the most superbly talented designers around. Here are the designers whom we have collaborated with so far.
