About Us

THE JAPANESE PAPER PLACE has a 37 - years history of bringing the exquisite beauty of Japanese papers to the world. From our Toronto, Canada warehouse, we distribute our over 2,000 in-stock Japanese papers to hundreds of retailers, manufacturers, corporate clients and artists on four continents each year.   Let us show you what they have discovered.   WHY JAPANESE PAPER?   Retailers love our papers since they show beautifully and sell well: their customers love it for invitations, stationery, collage, printing, boxmaking, giftwrap, presentation materials, menus, signage, home decoration - you name it.   Manufacturers, graphic designers, hotels, and restaurants appreciate our extensive selection of stock on-hand, for everything from corporate gifts to limited edition books.   Bookbinders, artists, museums and conservators value our wide range of high-quality papers and our staff depth of knowledge in choosing precisely the right paper for a particular project.
