All that glitters…

Friday, July 18th, 2014

As a lover of all things gold and shiny, and of design from the early 20th century, I am glad  to see Art Deco inspiration still going strong for stationery this year! We recently got some new items for all of those who still enjoy writing things by hand…


I love having boxed cards around the house. Usually a more economical choice than individual greetings cards. It’s nice to have a supply laying around for those unexpected last minute birthday parties, also (as I can tell you from experience) a random unexpected hand written note in the mail is pretty exciting! These cards are black and white with gold foil details and pretty gold envelopes. Pick a bright coloured Le Pen to write your note, seal it up with washi tape, and you’re set


The trend carries over to more personal stationery items as well. These pretty foiled journals are the perfect size to carry with you and maybe for an unexpected moment to journal in the park. Of course, we also have matching pencils… cause why not?


Naturally… it all comes back to the paper. Our Nepalese hand screened papers also come in a variety of art deco inspired prints with metallic pigments. Great for wrapping something special, embellishing invites or as a hanging print.

Stay Gold!

This little couple will be sitting pretty atop of a yummy wedding cake!  With just a few bits, you can make a one-of-a-kind keepsake for your big day.  Just choose a few papers to match your wedding day wardrobes and get creative!  Add hairdos and distinguishing features like eye-glasses to make a mini version of  the bride and groom… you could even make one of your pets!  Wooden banner cut-outs make it easy to add some festive decoration.  You can embellish the wood flags with paper pieces to make a bunting in your party colours, a banner of a wedding day greeting or the names of the couple.  What a fun way to add to a special day!  Wooden shapes, papers, twine and glue are all available in store at The Paper Place!  Get crafty!

My First Bookmaking Project

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

This week, with the help and advice of my coworkers, I embarked on my first bookmaking project. I started with a basic design around using Chicago screws and I wanted to share some progress images. After this experience I think the process is the special part of the book, even though the finished result is very pretty (if I do say so myself).

Monster Make – Creating Board Games on Nepalese Paper!!

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

We love seeing all the creative things that people do with our paper – this one is very unique!! Stephen, our very own web designer, has recently starting a company called Monster Make designing and producing handmade board games. When it came to printing his Potions game he wanted an old world feel to go with the look and theme and choose our lovely Nepalese Lotka paper. The game board was printed and then backed onto canvas. The results are beautiful!

Stephen also used some decorative Nepalese papers to back his handmade game boards and decorate his elf doors.

Check out his website for more of his games or you can visit him in person this weekend at Fan Expo!
