Community Corner: Paper Source, Deer Park

DEER PARK – Paper Source opened in the Deer Park Town Center at 20530 N Rand Road, Suite 430 in November. The Deer Park Paper Source public relations squad is here to fill shoppers in on all the details of the new store.

Why is Deer Park an ideal location for a stationary store?

We are always looking for new creative communities to expand in, and we believe Deer Park is one of them. We’re excited about inspiring people to, as is our mission, “Do Something Creative Every Day.” We provide materials to celebrate life’s moments with beauty, humor, originality and personal expression.

What unique merchandise can be found in the store?

Over 500 single cards and rubber stamps, a beautiful variety of fine papers imported from all over the world, plus a truly unique assortment of gifts.

In-store demonstrations are part of the Paper Source experience. Our associates are happy to show customers techniques from heat embossing to stamping, plus tips and tricks.

How many Paper Source locations are there nationally?

There are 80 Paper Source stores nationwide. Paper Source was founded in 1983 and inspired by the traditional paper making artistry in Japan.

Today we pride ourselves on being headquartered in Chicago, where the very first Paper Source store was opened over 30 years ago. Chicago is home to the teams that design and create the Paper Source-exclusive kits, stationery and more.

What’s the most rewarding part of working with Paper Source?

For our store associates it might be getting to pass on new creative techniques to visitors. For our designers based in Chicago, it might be seeing their illustrations and designs on our many Paper Source-exclusive items like stationery, wrap, calendars and more. And for our merchandise department it might be finding a great gift and sharing it with our customers.

But no matter the role, everyone at Paper Source is a part of our mission to inspire people to “Do Something Creative Every Day,” which is the most rewarding thing about working with Paper Source.
