About Us

History

The Paper Place has led the way in finding new and specialised art and paper markets. From the beginning the owners recognised a need to supply surrounding schools and the community with affordable and reputable art and paper supplies. With the onset of desktop computing a greater demand for The Paper Place's decorative and specialist papers emerged. A growing customer base were now seeking out premium quality papers which could be used with home and work place printers. Over time the business focus shifted to meet the demands of a growing decorative and specialist paper trade and in doing so a passion and expertise for the industry also developed.

 

Wedding and Special Event Invitations

Today, we currently stock over 700 different designer and art papers, together with an extensive colour range of matching standard and non-standard sized envelopes. Our paper and card stock, sourced both domestically and imported from around the world, can easily be transformed into personalised wedding invitations, special event invites and decorative paper arts.

 

Traditional Printing

To complement our extensive collection of designer paper, card and envelope stock we now offer traditional printing services. Teaming up with local artisan printer George Freakes, The Paper Place has now begun producing stunning results for customers who want their announcements to stand out beyond a digital print finish. Throughout the past year we have developed an excellent reputation for producing fine work at a competitive rate in letterpress; foil stamping and blind embossing. Such work has included wedding invitations, corporate branding labels and company media releases.

 

Fine Art Supplies

The Paper Place is committed to promoting the visual arts in our local community. We have a strong history as sponsors of Art societies throughout Victoria. We stock an extensive range of art supplies geared towards watercolour, oils, drawing and pastel enthusiasts at all levels. We are endeavouring to expand our art range to include other mediums and progressively make our art stock available online – so stay tuned.
