Hello! As you can see in our about page we are a husband and wife (&babies) team & we are here to create beautiful personalised products that you can be proud to gift yourself or to the people you love! We use top quality paper, wood & acrylic to ensure your gifts are loved for a lifetime. (Yay!)
All our products are designed & made by me (Laura) in our private studio in Donegal! My Husband (Kez) is the string that holds everything together! Keeping on top of admin, logistics and general management!
Paper Tree started as a tiny seed that grew into something that became a dream, and now, a reality! Launching our website has been in the works for over 4 long years and I can’t believe the day has come to hit the LIVE button!
Paper Tree started out as hobby paper-cutting after I made a few gifts for family and friends. After a few requests outside of our social circle we set up a facebook page and it all kind of took off from there. We started taking orders, developing our products, improving our materials and testing everything to see if there was a need and more importantly a want for the products we were making! Guess what…there was! Eeek!
At the time I was setting up the the business, I was working in marketing & retail with the intention of having Paper Tree as a creative outlet and a way earn something a little extra to pay for our wedding. I moved to a Creative Area Manager role at another company but quickly realised the role wasn’t making me happy. The opportunity came up to really give Paper Tree a chance at being my full time job. So I took it! As the business and our family grew, Kez became more and more involved and we expanded our products range from papercut products with lasercut wood and acrylic products.
The road has been far from smooth with really extreme lows and proud highs (which I shall tell you about in another blog) There have been moments of wanting to giving up, huge financial mistakes and general exhaustion from keeping the business and family plates spinning! BUT there has been heart bursting proud moments, hundreds of beautiful thank you messages, opportunities to expand our creative skills and an overwhelming feeling that we are allowing you to create memories and spread a little love with each of your gifts!
We wouldn’t be here without all the support from both our families and friends and all our wonderful customers! I certainly wouldn’t have believed in getting to this point had Kez not believed so much in me, my abilities and our ability to build this dream together around our tiny tribe of humans!
We have so much more to give but we are here, we are LIVE and we excited to see your orders and messages!
