Launching an Online Paper Boutique. Um, why?

We’re excited to open http://www.StargrassPaper.com for business!  But, we have to admit, the responses range from sheer exhilaration about the ability to purchase fine paper goods online, to utter confusion about attempting to revive a pastime beyond resuscitation.

Well, we absolutely LOVE finding quality paper goods with unique visuals and a strong voice.  Just scouring the earth for these finds gets us excited – and if you’re reading this you probably share in our enthusiasm.  But it’s also the use of these paper goods that gets us excited.

When you send a card or letter through the mail, it’s no longer the sum of it’s parts – it’s more than that.  Technically it’s a few ounces of pulp and a bit of ink.  And yet, to the person who receives that piece of mail, it feels like a hug, a high five, a big smile, or a sensuous back rub.  From there, it’s a souvenir from a moment in time, and every time you gaze upon it is like stepping into a time machine.

We get bogged down in the day-to-day mechanics of our lives; sending your friend or family member a tangible piece of yourself builds relationships and can change a person’s world.

So, um, that’s why we’re so excited!  Go ahead and send some paper love to friends and family today: http://www.stargrasspaper.com
