handmade paper, made in the USA"Your whole wheat paper was a hit in our company's informational packets! What a great way to make our materials stand out from the crowd! The all-natural, handmade 100% whole wheat paper tied in perfectly with our product (all-natural, handmade 100% whole wheat bread) and was a really unique way to communicate our brand. Since we were personally distributing many of these kits, the special paper was a fun thing to be able to point out to people (most people didn't realize you could have paper made from whole wheat!) and it gave us a great segue to share the story of our company."

Parker book“...YES, we loved the journal. Our mail lady made a special morning delivery when she saw the express package (gotta love living in a small town), so it arrived with plenty of time to be wrapped. I love the paper you chose - has a very granite feel to it, and was perfect considering the topic of the book! And the binding was lovely - everything was better than I had imagined it. Bill was incredibly overwhelmed and very appreciative. I had taken out the photocopies and let the kids color on them and we presented that version before the original. He was stunned to say the least! I've also had lots of inquiries about where I had the book done and have been giving you rave reviews.
Thanks again for all your hard work and for helping me to create an unforgettable surprise!”
