Oh my gosh, what a whirlwind of a week it has been over here at Off You Go Paper Co. HQ!
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!
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!
In the meanwhile, we’re working on retail locations on Main Street, West Vancouver and Kitsilano. If you are interested in carrying Off You Go Paper Co. product in your brick and mortar store, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com
In the meanwhile, check out these new cards designs and tell us which one is your favourite!
A few of the proofs that will be coming off the press this week. I’ll post these and more in the shop over the next couple of days so please stay tuned.

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. And of course, on www.offyougopaper.com we are highlighting this favorite print. Check it out in detail here: Basket Weave, Blue #1
So, remember those fantastic watercolours I was geeking out over a few weeks back? I’ve found the time to create some bright images that I am pleased to make available on the shop today. I love how these bold hues practically jump into the room. Click here for more details.

Because I had these new paints delivered yesterday & I am loving the bright hues they offer. I think this afternoon will be spent painting something new. Thought I would share, mostly because, you know, I’m geeking out.
