“In the early 90’s I bought a paper making kit. Before I knew it there were designers, customers and a damp musty basement. I ended up in front of a banker. A “hobby business” he called it! Well I decided to do it my way…the hard way. Nebraska to New Mexico and back. With the help of some amazing employees we have made paper for weddings, presidential events, famous bands and not so famous. Produced a single custom sheet for an order and 2.2 million for another! After a quarter of a century making paper who knows what the future holds. But one thing I can say, there is a lot more paper to be made!”
