PaperArtsy was created in 2003 by Leandra, and husband Mark joined a couple of years later. Mark (pre-rubber) was a chiropractor in New Zealand, and Leandra was a Japanese/Social Sciences teacher. Since our move from England to SW France in 2020, we now employ daughter Millie and son Hugo, and together with Dounia (our First French employee) we manufacture our own brand of stamps, stencils, and colour craft products such as Infusions and Fresco Finish Acrylic Paints.
We work with a fantastic group of talented designers who each offer their own spin on craft and creativity. We relish their unique and very distinctive creative style and how they offer our stockists and consumers worldwide wonderful inspiration and educational classes. 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! Bienvenue! Welcome!
Almost everything we produce - from making stamps, to bottling paint and infusions, or cutting stencils - is done on site. We sell these and other PaperArtsy branded items to craft and art stores around the world. We have exported our brand from Europe since 2003. We do not have a physical store, but we do hope to have a teaching space and boutique in the future. Our address is our manufacturing workshop, it is not a retail space.
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 may take into account how close physically you might be to an existing store.
We prefer to work with stockists who have an eye for mixed media lines and are interested in product education. We do not compete directly with the shops we supply, most releases you will have a 3 month minimum exclusive on those items before we put them on our website.
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.
