About Our Brand

Paper Pony Co. is a line of stationery founded by Talia Gavish in 2015. Ponies by nature are temperamental and feisty. They may be cute, but there’s always an element of surprise. Our own style is inspired by this sense of spirit. Almost all of our products are locally printed on FSC certified recycled paper. We always partner with manufacturers who uphold our standard of quality and ethics. Our world is one of bold colors, whimsical patterns, quirky line drawings and sometimes a silly pun. We are committed to being as environmentally responsible as possible while growing as fast as our little pony legs can carry us.

Our Story

In 2015, I moved across the country from Brooklyn, NY to Oakland, CA. Having lived my whole life in NY - minus a few years of college at RISD - I needed a change. It was an impulsive decision and I didn't think my career as a print and textile designer would come to an end. Want to be a UX designer? Move to the Bay Area. Want a full time job with benefits in the fashion industry? Stay in NYC. To say I panicked is an understatement. I have always turned to art, nature, and horses as forms of therapy and social interaction. Paper Pony is inspired by those outlets and began as a way to reconnect to a creative lifestyle. It has slowly developed into a new career path, one I'm still carving out for myself. My husband Mike is my support system and cheerleader. We now live in Berkeley with our two silly cats and daughter, Sasha.
