**New** Thank You Card Sets
We have adapted some of the thank you cards designed for our wedding suites into general purpose thank you cards! Available in sets of 8 cards and envelopes, they range from $12-$15.

Wedding Invitations that Sparkle
Isn’t the subtle sparkle on this wedding invitation printed on Stardream Quartz delightful?

Custom Wedding Ticket
This wedding invitation was custom designed by Paperjam for a couple that wanted a unique ticket look with a tear-off reply card.  We designed a 20’s inspired ticket printed on our Stardream Fine Gold and laser cut the corners and added a perforation so the reply card could tear off. 

Do You Know?

We LOVE paper.  We regularly go through our paper sample books and dream about what we want to bring in and offer at Paperjam.  Before we offer it to our customers, we do test runs to see how it performs on a variety of  jobs.  This month, we are excited to share that we are bringing in three new papers with diverse finishes.

Example of Classic Crest Eggshell Finish

100#C Classic Crest Avon White – Eggshell finish
Make an impression with every project, big or small, by using textures on paper. Our eggshell finish makes the paper look and feel like cotton at half the price.  This 100# cover weight paper is appropriate for art prints, wedding invitations, business cards, and more.

Available in 100#C Avon white. Acid Free, Carbon Neutral, FSC Mix Credit, Green-e Certified

110#C Neenah 100% Cotton
Cotton papers make an impact.  It’s an upscale choice for wedding invitations and art prints.  We have always carried a cotton with a deckle edge which we love, but it only comes in a 11 x 15 sheet which was frustratingly smaller than our average paper sheet and on the edge of too thin for business cards.  We finally found a cotton we like in a larger sheet size so we will have less waste.  While cotton is not recycled in the traditional sense, it is made from a byproduct of a textile industry that the EPA recognizes as a recovered fiber, making it environmentally responsible.

Available in 110#C white.

110#C Sundance Felt
The tactile quality of a felt finish adds weight with a unique look and feel.  Our 80#C Sundance felt has long been popular with our artist customers and brides looking to add texture to their wedding suite, but for many it was a trade off to have texture instead of weight.  Now that we have it in a heavier weight, we are excited to recommend it for those who want texture and weight on their item. And it is made from 100% post consumer waste!  It doesn’t get any better than this!

What’s Up?

COVID-19 and Small Businesses
Small businesses are seeing lower traffic than normal due to Portlanders engaging in social distancing.  This is good news when reducing the spread of illness, but concerning for those who rely on income from their small business.  One suggestion we have seen and support is buying gift certificates to local small businesses you want to support without increasing the spread of illness.
