Passion for Paper
What It Is: Meet Printed Matter Paper. This sweet Canadian paper products brand carries beautiful notecards, stationery, invites and more in seasonally stylish colours and patterns. Your job? Pick what you love and place an order with your custom details, like your name, address or event times. Within 24 hours you’ll receive a proof to sign off on and shortly after that, presto, custom paper products appear at your door that’ll have ALL of your friends asking ‘Where’d you get that?’
What’s extra cool is the designs at Printed Matter are regularly changing and designed by talented local artists. But if you still can’t find a style you fall head over heels with, you can also work with their team to craft something totally custom. But uh, seriously – I’d find it hard not to want one or two or twenty of their adorable designs!
But that’s not all! Printed Matter also carries a bunch of cute paper product accessories to finish of your sweet love letters, invites and thank you notes. They’ve got a great collection of custom monogram stamps and sticker labels that coordinate with some of their stationery.
Who It’s For: The newlyweds, to celebrate their new family. Your kid, to celebrate moving out. Your mom, who still prefers a handwritten letter.
What It Costs: The best part is, Printed Matter’s prices are 100% comparable with non-custom paper products you’d pick up at gift shops. Their custom notepads are $13, their cards are $1.75 a pop (with a minimum order of 20) and their stamps are $40.
