Milligram starts as an online business from Scott's dining table. Back then, it was known as NoteMaker, and everything from product photography to packing online orders was done by a team of just two.
OUR FIRST REAL OFFICE
The hard work starts paying off and we outgrow the dining table office. Like business adolescents we move into an actual office space in Footscray and the team starts to grow.
KIRBY JOINS THE TEAM
Our first furry team member is brought on board. Loved by all, Kirby is still a dedicated employee today.
MAKING YOU OUR FRIEND FOR LIFE
The Friends For Life loyalty program launches, giving our much-loved customers the rewards they want and the experiences they enjoy.
OUR FIRST EVENT
We host our first pop-up event with MT Masking Tape. Engaging with our customers at Melbourne Central, it gave us a taste for the hands-on experience and connecting with our community.
WHAT'S IN A NAME?
It's our 10th birthday and we make the big move to change our name from NoteMaker to Milligram. We realise our love for stationery has expanded into a love for all things design, so it feels right to make the switch. Our service and range stays the same — only better!
We launch our very own in-house brand, Studio Milligram. We make it our mission to deliver measured design, beautiful utility and to spark emotion with every item we create.
IT GETS REAL
Milligram opens its first store at Melbourne Central! Designed by the team at Studio Y, with its innovative interactive design, it quickly becomes the destination for all things stationery in Melbourne.
IT GETS REALLY REAL
We take on the mammoth task of opening 3 stores across Melbourne within 6 months (cue late nights and very tired feet). Each with their own unique design, every store carries its own experience for customers to enjoy.
