About us

Paperplain was set up in 1999 as a mail order company, not believing for one moment that this "new-fangled inter-web" would ever change people's shopping habits. Besides, people who wrote letters wouldn't go on-line for their stationery needs - would they?

How wrong we were...

Today Paperplain is one of the UK's biggest on-line social stationery company.

80% of our designs are exclusive to us and we pride ourselves on the personal service and value we offer.

We also offer a fully bespoke design and print service - so if you have a particular requirement or wish us to design something exclusively for you, we'd be delighted to hear from you.


In spring 2009 we moved into a design studio in Marylebone, central London, where we are delighted to meet many of our customers to discuss their requirements and to design exclusively for them.
