For such a new website we have quite a history, one that's well worth reading.
INKonPAPER is a trademark brand owned by WH Annett Pty Ltd. WH Annett Pty Ltd is based in Scoresby Victoria and designs, manufactures and distributes high quality office products Australia Wide including its own brands of Upward diaries, planner and social stationery Wildon business, accounting and record books and Designa presentation papers. The INKonPaper website was launched in June 2014 in response to today's trends for online shopping facilities.

foresight or not is still up for debate. One thing is certain, William would

proudly bares his name today. In 1961 William was joined by his son Don and in

Recently, Peter's son Chris became the fourth generation directly employed in this established family business.

Annett Pty Ltd consults with their product users, which provides invaluable
developmental feedback with many customer suggestions finding their way into
