Our Story

Hearty stationery & little encouragements to help you flourish in your friendships & faith

I want to create products that bring encouragement, truth, and joy into people’s lives. I hope my cards are used to uplift others, whether it's celebrating a big life milestone or bringing comfort in a dark time of grief.

A heartfelt card goes a long way.

Meet the Artist

Hi, I'm Sarah! I picked up my first nib in 2013 and fell in love. Calligraphy taught me to slow down and savour the Word of God. The truths I found in scripture have changed my life.

For years, calligraphy was a hobby. However in 2020, after losing my first pregnancy and going through a dark season of grief, I felt called to start Selah Paper. I quit my job at the time and designed our shop's first products: sympathy cards. They were born out of my own story and I haven't looked back since.

I currently live in Mississauga with my husband Alex and daughter. I feel extremely blessed to be creating art while raising my baby girl. Thank you for helping me build this family business!

What We Believe

We believe that hope and life come from God alone. Saturated in everything we create is a longing to share the love that we have received from Christ. Through our products, we want to encourage and equip people by pointing them to the Word of God, so they may experience saving grace and the heights, depths, and lengths of God’s love for them.

se·lah: pause & reflect

Selah is a mysterious word written in the Bible. It’s easy to miss, but I noticed it one day, italicized and huddled near the margin of the page, at the end of a psalm.

It’s a Hebrew word transliterated to English and found 74 times in the Old Testament, mainly in Psalms. It’s written but not said. Some scholars say “selah” is written as a musical direction for instrumentals while others believe it is an instruction for the reader to pause and reflect on what had been said or read.

What a beautiful mystery this word is. Selah. Pause. Reflect on what you just read. Savour Him. Marvel at His works. Praise Him. Much like we say hallelujah or amen, I believe this word to be something of the same vein.
