our story

Born from a passion for all things paper, Paper Circle celebrates the traditions of letter writing and gift exchanging as expressions of our love, friendships and gratitude for others.

We believe that paper can say it all – it sets the tone of your message, creates the mood of your event, tells the story of the sender. The envelope, the box, the wrapping should be just as exciting as what is inside, a mirror to the thoughtfulness and intent of what it contains.

Stationery, paper and design have been life-long loves for the Paper Circle founder.  A West Coast native, Vicki moved to Toronto to study interior design, and there she met her future husband. With a wedding approaching, Vicki began the search for invitations that satisfied both her design sensibility and her budget. She came to the conclusion that with some creative vision and computer savvy she could have one-of-a-kind invites that reflected such a personal event and had the professional quality of the lovely but often out-of-reach examples in magazines and at high-end retailers.

In 2003, Vicki co-founded Monkeys Business, a line of fresh, fun greeting cards that quickly got picked up by stores across Canada.

Hoping to provide fellow DIYers and craft lovers with the inspiration and beautiful, unusual materials needed for their own special paper projects.  Paper Circle was launched in 2009.
