We Are Moving! 

We are hyper-focusing on what you know us best for, our stationery!

Epitome Papers Water Street Location will Close December 27th
Visit us starting January 6th, 2020 in our new location

The Historic School Building
261 School Avenue, Suite 110
Excelsior, Minnesota 55331

We want our new space to be more private and relaxing for our stationery clients to give a more personal experience. Though we will be keeping popular lines such as Embossed Graphics, Crane Stationery, Kai Perfume, Addison Ross, etc.
We will be greatly scaling back on retail gifts to have more focus on our stationery.

Stay tuned for emails & social media posts with more information on sales and dates and dates as the move gets closer.

I had the opportunity to work with Epitome Papers in a Preppy & Plaid themed bridal shower/styled shoot last week and everything turned out to be perfect! I shared our Pinterest board with Evelyn and Shannon for inspiration and the day of the shoot, let's just say they NAILED IT! They provided bridal shower invitations, advice for the bride cards, and some misc. signage that fit our theme perfectly. We will continue to recommend Epitome Papers to our clients and can't wait to work with you in the near future! xo
