PaperArtsy was opened in 2003 by Leandra, and Mark joined a couple of years later. Mark (pre-rubber) was a chiropractor in New Zealand, and Leandra was a Japanese/Social Sciences teacher. We now employ daughter Courtney, son Hugo, and together with a couple of part-time staff and we all wear many hats to bring our products to market. We work with designers who each offer their unique creative style. We nurture them and their product range under the wider PaperArtsy umbrella. When you join PaperArtsy as a stockist, you are part of one big craft family! Welcome!
90% of our work is making stamps, bottling paint and infusions, cutting stencils - all this is done on site. We do not outsource production. We sell those and other PaperArtsy branded items to craft and art stores around the world. We have exported our brand since 2003. We do not have a physical store; our address is our manufacturing workshop.
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 and other socials to assist with the sale 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.
