More Press Props

The Fall issue of Stationery Trends really was the honey pot for media buzz! To top it all off... not only was a Green Paper Co. envelope on the cover (via the lovely 42 Pressed), but inside those pages lies an impressive 4 (count 'em!) page article spotlighting yours truly- moi- and my 13 year retail venture- On Paper.

A great big (HUGE) shout out and thank you to the amazing editor Sarah Schwartz for including such a beautifully written piece- I am truly flattered. To be in the company of Wanda Wen of Soolip fame (featured in the same issue) is an honor. Sarah has done an amazing job creating a industry publication that is so on trend and hits the mark every time.

In an over the top bragging rites indulgence- you can read the article below. It's no secret that we are all working extra hard these days and it is wonderful to be recognized in such a gracious way.


42 Pressed - Cover Girl!

It's a pretty darn good day when one of your incredibly talented customers , 42 Pressed, makes the cover of Stationery Trends, the industry's finest trade rag!

And it's an even better day when the featured invitation features one of our envelopes! Yep- a sustainably stylish 100% post-consumer recycled Goldenseal A7 was dressed to the nines and looked incredibly lovely with Jackie Robinson's beautiful invitation ensemble. Very stunning indeed!
