About Us

Paper2Play was founded in late 2007 by Katia Dorcin (that's me). The story of the company's founding is a long one, but the short version is pretty simple.

My interest in decoupage emerged about ten years ago. I was fascinated by this art and became very observant of all decoupaged objects I could find at art galleries, craft exhibitions, markets etc. Eventually I picked up the scissors as an avenue to express my creative self.

Over the last several years I found myself asking the same questions whenever I went shopping for the craft supplies I needed… Where are the truly unique supplies? Why can't I find the papers I want at my local craft stores? When is someone going to open a store that caters to my Mind and Soul?

There are many brick-and-mortar craft stores in my area where I spent all my time and money. But none of those big department stores and mall captured my design style. One day I decided it was time to stop building other peoples’ businesses and build one of my own. It is said to build a business around something you’re passionate about, so Paper2Play was born!

As owner, I am heavily involved in the business. I do it all, from programming the website, to writing product descriptions, to editing the photos, to answering the phones and packaging and shipping each order. I answer the phone, answer the emails and work to do the best job of customer service I can, even if that means referring customers to other shops when I can't help them.

My company believes in celebrating the exuberance of color, design, and creativity. My goal is to offer my customers unique products that bring warmth and energy into their homes. My collection evokes the spirit and essence of Ethnic design, and brings the fashionable « ethnic chic » look into your home or office. I search to secure products which are not commonly available in the North American market.

So far running a simple, honest business built on value and service is paying off. Business is growing, word of mouth is spreading and the product line is expanding every month. Positive feedback from our customers keeps coming in, so I must be doing something right. Best of all, it's my own business I'm working so hard to build.

I hope you give me a chance to earn your business.

Best regards,
