The Paper Place

This is the place for the paper obsessed. For paper lovers. For the paper curious.

Whatever type of paper you need — for whatever project you’re working on — you’ll find it here at The Paper Place, amongst our collection of more than 2000 papers from Japan, Nepal, Italy and around the globe. Let’s just say it’s easy to get lost in this world!

But we are so much more than paper. So, so much more.

Just as varied and unique as our paper collection is our stock of stationery, gifts, craft supplies and miscellaneous fabulous things. We offer a treasure box of curiosities, thoughtfully and lovingly hand-selected by owner Heather Sauer, who makes it her mission to hunt down items that you’re bound to adore.

Heather took ownership of The Paper Place (formerly The Japanese Paper Place) in 2005, after several years on staff. Our brick-and-mortar location has been open on West Queen West in the heart of Toronto’s Art & Design district for more than 30 years and was Heather’s “favourite store on earth” when she was younger.

This is just that kind of place — it elicits passionate proclamations of love from its customers, and is the go-to spot for designers, artists and stylists looking for that special something. Our devoted following comes back time and time again for the thrill of the unexpected find. Among the vast selection of paper and other enchanting objects here at The Paper Place, you’ll discover what you didn’t know you were looking for!
