HELLO SEATTLE!

Oh my gosh, what a whirlwind of a week it has been over here at Off You Go Paper Co. HQ!

img_4446

My visit to Seattle last weekend was so fun, seriously, this town never disappoints!   And I’m EXTREMELY excited to announce our first US retailer, Paper Delights!  Mom and daughter crew Kathy and Alicia are paper connoisseurs that believe ‘it’s the small details that leave a lasting impression.’  That’s just one reason why I feel so blessed that they’ll be carrying  Off You Go Paper Co.  products in their beautifully curated shops.  How awesome is it that I get to celebrate  my ‘1st international stockist’ milestone with these great people!

And although we’re celebrating this small business milestone, the greatest part is that it’s just the beginning.  I’ll be announcing more retailers in Seattle and Vancouver in just a few days!

But for now, I’m going to excuse myself to get my kids off to school.  Have a great day everyone!

So, this feels pretty good…

Well, I’m not gonna lie, it feels pretty darn good to walk into a shop that you’ve admired for over a decade and see that they have dedicated an entire wall to your art.

Voila! The Off You Go Paper Co. wall at Zing Paperie in Park Royal Village.  (West Vancovuer)

Amazeballs, right?!?  I love the bright, modern and cheery vibe that Greg and Tiffany have achieved with this amazing stationary and design shop, and I am thrilled to be included in their product line.

Not to be outdone,  look for Off You Go Paper Co. cards on the spinner front and centre!

I’m definitely slotting this one in to the small business victory column.  But the hustle continues, and I can’t wait to see what comes next!

Can’t get to West Van?  No problem!

Restocked at Delish General Store

I spy 7 of the 11 Off You Go Paper Co. designs currently in stock on the card wall at Delish General Store on Granville Island.  Have you been to this amazing market store?  It’s tucked around the corner behind Rogers Chocolates and is, arguably, the coolest spot on the island.  Look at all those amazing cards!

New Designs & 2016 Wholesale Catalogue week!

Hey everyone!

I’ve been decidedly absent from the blog as of late. But not without good reason.  I’ve been working on expanding the paper line and building our 2016 wholesale catalogue.  It’s been a lot of work producing the art, sourcing the perfect papers, printers, graphic designer to build the catalogue all while tending to my flu riddled children.

But a little hustle goes a long way, the kids are starting to feel better and I am so pleased to be bringing these products to market next week.  I’m super excited to share some sneak peeks with you here and will continue to add new stockists was the prints and cards arrive in shops.  If you’re interested in receiving a wholesale catalogue, please contact me at brit@offyougopaperco.com

In the meanwhile, check out these new cards designs and tell us which one is your favourite!

2 Design Finds Found on the Internet This Week

  1. Molly Hatch Designs for Chasing Paper
    Chasing Paper is a New York based company founded by Elizabeth Rees.  The company makes fantastic removable (peel & stick & peel!) wallpapers.  Their business has grown remarkably fast for good reason.  The designs are contemporary, colourful, bold, the product is great quality and easy to use.  Not to mention that it makes changing up your home style remarkably easy.

    They have also recruited the fabulous talents of Molly Hatch, artist and ceramist.  Ms. hatch has designed for major brands, exhibited one of a kind art pieces at design shows and museums on a global level, and has cracked the mainstream with lines in major retailers like Anthropologie. Here are a couple of the designs she put together for Chasing Paper.  Click here for her full Chasing Paper product catalogue.

  2. Alma Gémea Homeware. I first stumbled on Alma Gémea’s ultra modern home wares at the Vancouver Museum of Anthropology store.  I was extra pleased to find them in Portugal as well.  Portugal is known for its colourful ceramics and cork is one of the countries major exports.  Alma Gémea’s marriage of the countries tradition and industry is seamless and beautiful.  In addition to looking super cool, they are well thought out and functional, the cork bottoms are easily removed for washing and the crockery is dishwasher safe. get them soon at   Cork & Co.
