At Paperblanks, we create products that inspire creativity, empower individuality and celebrate special moments. An homage to art and culture, our line of journals and creative tools sparks the imagination by offering a connection to artists and cultural movements from all eras and regions.
The Paperblanks journey begins with a simple desire – to find the perfect everyday journal.
In the early 1990s, Vic Marks, a writer and publisher looking to create the perfect notebook, connected with Supriti Bharma, a lifelong learner looking to play with new forms of artistic and spiritual expression. The creative chemistry between these two seekers was instant. They shared a desire to express, to travel, to learn new traditions and discover new truths about themselves. And together they created that special journal Vic envisioned, which became the first Paperblanks product in 1992.
Vic and Supriti’s creative energies, and gusto for experimentation, propelled them to continue beyond that first notebook and the Paperblanks brand has grown organically ever since. From our first office in the urban Kitsilano neighbourhood of Vancouver, Canada, to expanding into our European headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, we’ve travelled the world to follow our passion. People have joined the Paperblanks family from all walks of life and corners of the world, with their unique histories, independent voices and diverse cultures bringing new ideas and perspectives to our company.
Throughout it all, our founders’ original sense of curiosity, discovery and self-expression has never waned. In fact, it guides every decision we make. With every new experience we bring back the art, stories and cultural traditions that have been shared with us. Our design library echoes our personal ethos: always evolving, always open.
So, while what we do is make journals, that’s not who we are. Paperblanks is a mosaic of diverse, passionate and dedicated individuals around the world. What joins us is a commitment to create beautiful, high-quality objects that bring joy to all who experience them. It’s not only our journals that make us unique – it’s our passion. It’s our perseverance. It’s our people.
The Paperblanks design library offers a curated selection of antique bindings, traditional artistic practices and contemporary trends. By partnering with museums, libraries and artists around the world we are able to use our own unique printing process to bring these diverse works of cultural expression to everyday life.
