About Papermash

Who are Papermash?

Papermash was set up by Lynne Robinson in 2009.

We stock independent stationery brands from around the world, party banners and paper straws and are passionate about gift wrapping! There are lots of gift wrapping ideas on our blog. We have stocked washi tape ever since we first discovered it on US designs blogs over a decade ago! We also discovered Rifle Paper Co in 2009 when they were newly formed and stock many of their lines including planners, calendars and iphone cases. We secured their first UK press with a full page feature of this floral heart print

HtgyyyyyyytyyypWe love Japanese and Korean stationery and stock cute Korean stationery in quirky designs, as well as higher end Japanese designers such as Midori and Hightide.

We love to style a home office or craft room, and have lots of stylish desk accessories.

Papermash is a small team, run by Lynne and a few others.


What is washi tape?

Washi tape is a tearable decorative tape, made from Japanese rice paper. We've experimented with different brands over the years, and now only stock MT tape and Maste washi tape as we believe it is the best quality. Use cheap washi tape and it often comes away or falls off. MT and Maste tape is still low tack and tearable but much more sticky - which makes it perfect for craft projects.

Do you have a shop?

We are an online shop only and have no plans to open a physical store - you can read the reasons why here.

When will I receive my order?

Our full delivery T&Cs are here. If you place an order before 12 it will usually be sent out the same day, but sometimes the next working day. We don't despatch at weekends. Royal Mail is very reliable and you will usually receive your order (via First class) the following day. 

Do you offer items for wholesale?

We are a retailer only so we don't offer wholesale.

Any other questions?

Feel free to pop us a question via our contact page - we respond very quickly!
