  2. DIY Keepsake Box for Mother’s Day

    Each year we look for meaningful ways to thank our moms for bringing us into this world. One of the most special ways to show gratitude is with a thoughtful, handmade gift. This year, our in-house crafting expert, Rebecca, created a memory box for her mom to thank her. Memory boxes make a lovely gift for a variety of occasions beyond Mother’s Day, such as graduation and first anniversaries – or are even a great way to put together an inspiration board for yourself! Create your own with these how-to steps and share your box with us on Instagram with the hashtag #PSThanksMom.

  3. Meet the Maker Series: Ebony of Snow & Graham

    As we head into the spring season and approach Mother’s Day, we wanted to feature one of our favorite mom bosses. Ebony Snow Hurr is the founder and creative director of Snow & Graham, a company that has long been a staple at Paper Source with their beautiful line of papers, stationery and calendars. Born into a family of artist and entrepreneurs starting her own business was seemingly inevitable. Over the past 20 years, Ebony has nurtured her brand and her family of three boys with a creative and industrious spirit. We chatted with Ebony about what it’s like to be a working mom, inspiration from generations before her and her favorite mom moments.

  5. Spotlight on Savoy Paper

    Our heritage is rooted in paper. Though we have crafting materials, books and gifts for all occasions, paper is how it all started. We try to provide the highest quality papers from all over the world to add that special element to your wedding invitations, birthday cards or everyday stationery. That’s why one of the papers we feature is Savoy, a paper made from 100% cotton giving it a luxurious, flexible feel. Savoy is both elegant and sophisticated, making it perfect for high-end invitations. Originally designed for letterpress, SAVOY prints beautifully both offset and digitally. Its strong formulation, yet soft flexibility allows for strikingly clean and crisp folding, blind embossing, foil stamping and engraving. Because it is made from cotton, Savoy feels rich and luxurious, reminiscent of fabric. Since it’s acid free, invitations printed on it will last a lifetime.
