Product Designer

Niknaz is the creative innovator who experiments & designs our newest products. She starts by incorporating customer's ideas, then sources high-quality materials, and brings the design to life. She also photographs our products and oversees the entire production process. In the past, she studied Visual Communication and Graphic Design, and designed her own jewelry line.

Kelly Paper Anniversary Customer Service


Customer Happiness & Production

If you've written in with a question, Kelly has probably been the friendly voice helping you out! She helps turn customers' ideas into custom gifts. Kelly's creative side comes from her background in Theatre & Costume Design. She's mastered one creative skill after the next- from hand-beading to metalwork to graphic design.


Handmade Gift Production

Hanae hand-makes and personalizes gifts that get shipped to all around the world. She is an artist who grew up in Tokyo. She's the illustrator who created animal characters for “This Podcast has Fleas,” a fun children’s show starring Alec Baldwin. She loves creating work that sparks joy and leaves a lasting impression on people!


Shipping & Delivery Manager

Toshi, our office Puppy, is a 6-month old Miniature Goldendoodle. When he's not chasing his tail, he's busy packaging & shipping customer's orders. His favorite part of the day is when the mailman comes to give him a treat!
