Their design library is a curated selection of antique bindings, traditional artistic practices and contemporary trends. Traditionally they have looked to museums and private collections that specialize in antique book bindings or handwritten manuscripts. And while these art forms continue to inspire key pieces of their collection, they now also work with contemporary painters, illustrators and digital artists. They have even experimented with transferring sculpture, photography and furniture design to the journal book covers!
Once they have licensed a piece of art, their talented Graphics department in Vancouver gets to work on digitally reproducing it. Throughout the process, they create handmade samples of the books so they can make sure the final product is as beautiful as can be.
After we print and bind and produce them they can take that initial “wow” moment and bring it to all of us! From trade-shows to brick and mortar retailers to online shops, bringing their Paperblanks products into the world is an energizing and thrilling moment.
They can’t wait to see how these new designs will be put to use by you! The joy of being part of your creativity is what drives the whole Canadian local company!
