Established late 2003, we manufacture here in the UK, on site our own amazing rubber stamps. We work with superb local companies to bring to you our super smooth 12x12 scrapbook papers, the best and most versatile Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paint (since 2011), and we also sell a wide variety of art and craft supplies related to all kinds of Paper Art crafting. In addition to the items we design in house, we work with several independent artists to bring their designs to market in the form of stamps, stencils, chalk paints, dies, chipboard, papers and more.
90% of our work is making stamps, bottling paint and selling those and other PaperArtsy branded items to craft and art stores around the world. We have exported our brand since 2004. We do not have a physical store; our address is our manufacturing workshop.
Buying from us online
We have 2 websites; retail (visible) and wholesale (password accesible only).
Please note: our retail site lists all product prices without VAT, so if you are in the EU/UK 20% sales tax will be added at the checkout.
If you wish to know freight costs, please add items to your basket, tell the cart your address, and it will calculate the cost accurately based on the weight of the items in your basket.
We accept all major credit/ debit cards including Amex, you can do BACS (bank transfer) payments or you can phone us to pay.
If you have seen items on our stand at shows that are not online, please telephone, it is possible we could have them in stock, but not online yet.
Becoming a PaperArtsy Stockist
If you wish to be a PaperArtsy stockist, you must meet 3 criteria:
1. Be VAT/ GST (sales tax) registered within your territory.
2. Teach classes on a regular basis in store, online etc.
3. Have a physical and/ or online store(ideally both).
In addition to this we will take into account how close physically you might be to an existing store.
Education with our products is so important to us. We do not supply for bulk sale on TV shopping channels, for ebay or similar, or to large distribution networks. We hand pick our independent stockists and we are extremely selective about who we agree to supply. We want our stockists to have a semi-exclusive line of supply, and become known as PaperArtsy specialist in your area.
All stockists are welcome to use ideas seen on our blog, YouTube channel, online pictures etc to assist with the sales of our products in your store or online. As a courtesy to the artist, please give credit to the originator of any creation you use or adapt in class or online.
