Paper D'Art are very happy to have recently celebrated their 30th year publishing ground breaking greetings cards around the world.
Mark, Reuben and now Lauren are particularly excited to be pushing what goes inside an envelope once again, exploiting state of the art laser technologies to bring you the breathtaking Top of the World and 3D cards that are setting new standards in both detail and excitement. A thrill to design and manufacture and a joy to send.
Mark Everdell was a founding partner of Paper D'Art back in 1985. Early experiences with pitching a new business idea to Richard Branson decades before the invention of The Apprentice or Pitch to Rich gave him a world view that 'nothing is impossible' and a keen interest in building and unique and innovative business that thrives because it's products are second to none.
Reuben McHugh is a brilliant artist, illustrator and latterly paper engineer. Collaborating with Paper D'Art since 1995 he is the world renowned designer behind the stunning and ever popular D'Art Noel collection of Christmas cards, giftwrap, christmas decorations and gift food packaging. Slightly fed up with his work at an International Publishing House he by good fortune sent his portfolio to the newcomers at Paper D'Art. We asked to meet him immediately as it was obvious even then what a huge talent he has.
Lauren Everdell is a graduate in English Literature from both Oxford and Columbia Universities and is bringing a whole new perspective to Paper D'Art publishing based on words, history and popular culture as never before. She is also very skilled at calligraphy with both brush and pen. We are most thrilled that she spends time on Paper D'Art product design and research when her novel writing projects allow.
Marianne Ley We are thrilled to once again be working with the hugely talented Marianne. Her work is thematic and inspired by an ecclectic mixture of Vintage 18th Century etchings, manuscripts and decorated paper ephemera. She brilliantly collages hand drawn elements, screen printed borders and snippets of antique lace. The historical and the contemporary collide in Marianne's evocative and wondrous landscapes populated with Woodland Creatures, Shy Geishas and inquisitive Owls.
