About Us


I’m Támara - brand and content strategist, freelance graphic designer, and lifestyle enthusiast focused on inspiring others to live an intentional life. Through every carefully curated product we design, I share my experiences, practical tips, musings, and personal stories in hopes that they will help and inspire others to cultivate good habits that will elevate their everyday lifestyle.

I’m a huge stationery lover (since childhood), an avid bibliophile, a relentless creative, and a lover of all things elegant and minimal.

I created melanin on paper, a Black & woman-owned, curated stationery & lifestyle brand, in 2018 (we were formerly Footprint Stationery and later Simply Luxe Co.). We design clean, classic, yet stylish stationery, digital, and lifestyle products. We also strategically create and select quality pieces for our shop and we pride ourselves in designing products that we are confident meet your functional and aesthetic needs. With a perfect balance of luxury and clean designs, we have mastered the art of simplicity!



Our goal is to provide you with quality stationery, digital, and lifestyle products that compliment your specific taste.  We strive to always improve and create new products!  So be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram, and don't forget to subscribe to our newsletter to get first-hand access to news, updates, and exclusive discounts!


You're welcome to contact us via the chat feature in our e-store, or you may send us an email anytime at melaninonpaper@gmail.com!  We aim to respond to all messages within 24 hours.
