Founded on the Oregon coast by a guy named Ted, this small handscreened wallpaper company flourished in the Age of Aquarius. Many years later, some young designers seeking striking wallcoverings discovered Ted's greatness—just days before the designs and equipment were to be destroyed. Knowing what had to be done, these young designers headed west to save Ted's legacy. Relocated to the Bywater District of New Orleans, Flavor Paper continued to print using Ted's traditional printing methods and vacuum table, but with increased accuracy and detail.
The Flavor Lab is now located in the Cobble Hill section of Brooklyn and is home to Flavor Paper's design and screenprinting operations. Two reengineered versions of Ted's original table are the centerpiece of the Lab and the backbone of the wallpaper printing operation. To support the hand screened printing process, the Flavor Lab houses a darkroom, screen etching equipment, and an ink room where they custom mix all of their colors. Printing becomes street art as the front windows allow pedestrians to watch the process happen in the massive overhead mirrors. The Flavor Paper showroom is located on the second floor and offers clients a unique way to view wallpaper.

Our HistoryPaper Source was founded in 1983 by Sue Lindstrom, a woman who was delightfully obsessed with paper. Inspired by the traditional papermaking artistry in Japan, Sue opened the first Paper Source store in Chicago to showcase beautiful handcrafted papers from around the world. Through the years, Paper Source grew its product offering beyond fine paper and expanded its reach with the introduction of a robust web store and a wholesale division, Waste Not Paper. Today, Paper Source has dedicated design and product development teams that produce exclusive new kits, stationery, gift wrap and invitation designs each year.
In 2007, Paper Source received an infusion of growth capital from Brentwood Associates, a private equity investment firm with a shared passion for the Paper Source brand and a likeminded goal for nurturing and growing consumer businesses. Sue and her business partner Jim York carefully selected Brentwood and together they brought in Sally Pofcher as CEO. Under Sally's leadership, Paper Source has stepped up its commitment to the environment and opened 9 new stores, bringing our total to 30 stores in 13 states, with plans to open more stores in 2009.
What's with the wasp?The diligent paper wasp creates its nest by chewing bark and leaves into a paper-like pulp, and thus receives our affectionate designation as the original paper maker.
So, in tribute to our fellow paper aficionado, fold yourself an origami cup and offer a papery toast to the insect who started it all!

In striving to create an architecture of the senses, it becomes necessary to confront and engage multiple boundaries within the study and practice of architecture. Of critical importance is the process of 'making'. With our own hands, we put physical shape to our model and paper designs. Without the hand of the designer shaping the piece, the practice of architecture becomes mere direction, with the architect only suggesting a vague possibility, not 'making' a conceptual and physical connection.
Urban Outfitters is a global retailer with a boutique approach.
Does that sound like a contradiction? How about this: Urban Outfitters is the biggest small retailer in the world.
Still confused? That’s because we didn’t start Urban Outfitters to make sense on paper and we certainly never thought we’d be writing something like a brand bio.
Hell, we don’t even have a logo.
The last time San Francisco–based industrial designer Benjamin Laramie made any sort of flower out of paper was in elementary school. For the April 2010 issue's “Dwell Reports”, however, Laramie was asked to fill nine planters with botanicals made entirely of paper. After studying a vintage illustrated encyclopedia of houseplants, he abstracted and handcrafted over 20 varieties of flora made up of hundreds of individual pieces, no two being exactly alike.
