Paper Parasol Press was born in 2009, but started a few years prior at the start of a long distance relationship. What started as a correspondence between Chicago, Illinois and St. Pete, Florida, turned into a full time business. As fate would have it, Chicago became home. In 2012, Paper Parasol Press moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. We now call California our home, but we remain inspired by our Midwest roots and true to the colors and energy of the West Coast. We are fans of handwritten correspondence, human connections, and artful designs.
We believe in kindness and compassion to all living things, which is why animal welfare is extremely important to us. Like us, they deserve kindness, safety, love, and happiness. Seeing an animal get a second chance at a happy and thriving life is a rewarding experience.
We also believe in giving back to the local community with a focus on youth programs, such a mentorship opportunities and providing resources for development to build brighter futures. After all, young people are the future.
