1. Meet The Makers: PS Design Team

    One of our largest design launches each year is our calendar and planner collection.  August marks the first month in our Academic Planners and Calendars, so we thought this was the perfect time for you to meet  the artists behind the designs: our fantastic and fun Paper Source Design team. Find out about how each team member spends their workday, hear about how they discover their inspiration, and catch some insights into their favorite PS collections and designs. 

    Don’t forget to check if they are ‘Pro Cattitude’ or Pro ‘Good Boys’ and if Ipads make their list of  ‘what to bring on a deserted island’  here.
