1. #PSThanksMom

    As we kick off Mother’s Day weekend, we wanted to celebrate all of the mom figures in our lives by shining a light on everything we’re grateful for that they’ve done. With our #PSThanksMom campaign, we reflect on why we’re thankful for our moms and the lessons they’ve taught us along the way.

    Here at Paper Source HQ, our employees took the time to write their own messages to their mom, sharing the wisdom they’ve imparted on them and the impact they’ve had on their lives. Below are some things we’re thanking mom for.

    My mom has the most infectious laugh. Thank you mom for passing on your joy for life!

  2. Mom Bosses at Paper Source

    Mother’s Day is an important holiday to celebrate. It’s the perfect time to praise the strong, loving women in our lives. This year, we wanted to highlight some of the exceptional ladies at Paper Source who define the term, Mom Boss. These women have two full time jobs – Paper Source and being a mom.

    We interviewed a few of these ladies to find out what it’s like to be a working mom. Here is the advice they have on keeping it all together…

  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.
