Shop History

Not Just A Card was founded by Cyrus Pang in 2014. He began with selling handmade calligraphy cards and plates at Sunday markets in Melbourne, Australia. Meanwhile, he started teaching calligraphy.

In June 2016, he opened a small online business dedicated to providing professional calligraphy materials to calligraphers in Australia and New Zealand. 

In January 2019, he opened a brick and mortar retail shop in Carnegie, Melbourne, Australia. However, due to the impact of the global pandemic COVID 19, he decided not to renew the lease nor looking for a new location, and the last day of the retail shop was Thursday, 24th December 2020. After the Christmas break, he continued to run the business from home as an online service and ship orders as usual.

In January 2023, the shop base was moved from Australia to Hong Kong and a new calligraphy specialty retail shop was opened in Cheung Sha Wan, Hong Kong.

His shop includes the fundamental items plus a full range of calligraphy tools and supplies for both broad-edge and pointed pen calligraphy. The wide range includes Nibs, Penholders, High-Quality Writing Papers, Calligraphy Markers, Inks & Gouache from all over the world as well as other calligraphy tools and accessories.

His aim is to provide a specialty shop for calligraphy lovers and artists. Look forward to serving you!




About The Calligrapher

Cyrus moved to Melbourne from Hong Kong during his childhood and graduated from RMIT University with a bachelor’s degree in Communication Design. He later completed a master's degree in Visual Communication at Monash University.

In 1997, he first discovered calligraphy when he was in Hong Kong before he came to Australia. Italic, Gothic and Foundation scripts were introduced briefly in class, and he has not been able to stop since. He is a member of the Calligraphy Society of Victoria (CSV) in Melbourne, Australia and a member of the White Box Studio in Hong Kong.

No matter how digital this world has become, handwritten calligraphy is irreplaceable due to the human element it brings. Nowadays, more and more clients are seeking a hand-made aesthetic rather than a computer font which can be replicated by anyone with access.

Cyrus is very grateful and blessed to be doing what he loves. He treats every commission as a new journey and he will strive to make your special day as exquisite as you have always envisioned it to be!
