About Us

Noteworthy Paper & Press, a retail shop and stationery and gift brand, located in the beautiful mountain town of Missoula, Montana, was co-founded in 2008 by partners Taylor Valliant and Amy Dolan.

Noteworthy has always been more than just a gift shop. To Missoulians and tourists alike, it is well known as a place to be inspired, a place to reflect and even a place to laugh. Listening to our customers giggle over greeting cards or helping another pick out a sympathy card and in turn hearing their sorrows, reminds us that we are all connected by our human joys and griefs.

Our mission at Noteworthy is to share our love of artisan paper goods and gifts in our retail store and through our wholesale line. Over the years, we've come to see with our own eyes the incredible power of small businesses and artisan businesses in particular, to capture the heart of customers locally and all across America. We believe deeply in promoting creativity in ourselves and others, in sustainability and style in everyday objects, a positive workplace, and a happy healthy planet.

Thank you for your support and for shopping small!

We Miss Snail Mail. Tell Your People You Love Them by Sending a Note, Sunset Magazine, January 2022

To us, “quaint stationery shop owner in a rustic Western town” sounds like a fantasy job in a rom-com. And a recent Instagram post of the snowy storefront of Missoula-based Noteworthy Paper & Press confirmed that printing cute cards with grizzly bears and camper vans on them is a dream gig. Founders Taylor Valliant and Amy Dolan have been happily running this gift shop—elevating the Montana souvenir, and procuring killer vintage Western-themed postage for their custom invitations—since 2008.
