How We Started:
Milky & Co. Studios (also known as Milky & Co.) began in our living room in Bear, Delaware. As sisters, we are pretty different, but we had a mutual interest in drawing and collecting stickers. Coupled with our favorite and precious mini schnauzer, Milky, our sticker shop, Milky & Co. Studios was born in June 2020.
As we've grown, we've scaled to different products, ranging from greeting cards to washi tapes to laptop stickers. We are now selling in brick-and-mortar retailers (a long time dream of ours!) and we're continuously seeking to grow while also sharing our love for stationery with the world.
One of our main goals with the shop was to spread Asian culture, particularly, express our love for our Korean heritage and culture as well. Therefore, you'll find many of our products are Asian-inspired / support Asian initiatives and movements.
Our small business has grown from being run by the two of us to having our parents a part of the journey! You'll often find our mom packing orders and our dad working with our Silhouette portrait to print out our stickers and greeting cards. What started with a brief "what if we started a stationery shop" has truly evolved, and we're so grateful for all the support we have received.
We hope you'll continue to read about our journey as we grow
and dip into different products! With Esther now a freshman at Harvard and I (Hannah) spending the majority of my time working my full-time job in finance based in Minneapolis, we're a "long distance partnership" with our parents holding down the fort with Milky and Theo to facilitate of course. We have so much planned ahead for the future of Milky & Co! You can subscribe to our email list for exclusive updates and weekly emails and follow us on Instagram for product sneak peeks!
