About Us – Paper Parade

About Us

Paper Parade Stationers was established in 2014 by Scottish illustrators Rachael Sommerville and Cara Holsgrove. 

Borne out of a shared passion for contemporary, design-led stationery, we produce distinguished paper goods and stock unique stationery items. Our range includes greetings cards, gifting materials, desk stationery, and accessories using original Paper Parade designs and prints. 

In Spring 2017 we opened our first standalone shop and studio in Edinburgh’s vibrant Morningside district. With a vast amount of experience in retailing we wanted to extend the care and quality we show in our products to our customer experience. We believe that our new store does exactly that.

We endeavour to be environmentally conscious and use recycled and FSC certified paper stocks wherever possible, as well as printing and producing all of our own products here in the UK. In 2020, our cards have gone plastic free! Please bear with us while we use up all the existing plastic packaging.

Custom Stationery & Design Services

If you have a special project you’d like our help with, please get in touch. In the past we have worked with our clients to develop bespoke designs and custom stationery. These range from custom greetings cards to wedding and event stationery, branding and packaging to menu design. However big or small your needs may be, we can work with you to achieve something unique and beautiful that truly represents you.
