My wife and I continue to send cards for all occasions and one of the reasons is Paper Papier. Its uniqueness in selection and the wonderful reactions from card recipients, make selecting just the right one a joy. The selection of wrappings, decorative boxes, agendas and stationery of all kinds make it the go to store in Ottawa. I have purchased several fountain pens ️here and I can’t think of a better place for selection. I bought a Black and Orange Aero Diplomat pen two weeks ago and I love it! Gary and Andrew deserve a lot of credit for making their store just a little different from any other in Ottawa. Their effort really shows through. Before I forget, Paper Papier has a beautiful selection of plants and flowers as well, if gift-giving includes that extra-special touch.  We are so happy that the Lads are expanding through the introduction a new website. Congratulations, it will only be a great success!

We have been shopping at Paper Papier for years and years.  A wonderful selection of greeting cards, gift wrap, stationery with new stock arriving weekly.  Andrew and Gary are wonderful souls, very attentive to detail and always happy to help you find just the right thing.  Best shop on the Byward Market

Shopping at PaperPapier is like visiting the most delightful candy shop for lovers of beautiful stationery, fine writing tools, saucy cards and many delightful treats besides - all expertly curated by Andrew and Gary.
It's impossible not to find something to catch your eye.  Over the years we have picked up many products that continue to enhance our desks and our home.  
PaperPapier is a must-visit for anyone travelling to Ottawa, and a valued treasure for those of us lucky enough to live here.

I love everything about PaperPapier.  Over the years, I have bought cards with just the right touch for any occasion (many of them laugh-out-loud funny), wrapping paper beautiful enough to be framed, miles of colourful ribbon, my favourite Lamy pens, annual agendas. . . I could go on and on. Even in a digital world, these beautiful things give pleasure, for ourselves and others. Andrew and Gary have impeccable taste which they are always happy to share in the form of suggestions.  I wouldn’t think of going anywhere else.


Andrew and the team provide an outstanding and personal service with lots of good humour. Nothing is too much trouble, even special orders if they don’t have what you want to hand. Couple this with a great range of writing papers, unique and special cards and an excellent variety of fountain pens and ink, Paper Papier makes every visit special. Great job guys!


If you love all things related to paper, pen, pencil, and many other related items besides, then the glorious and entirely irreplaceable PaperPapier is the shop for you! Myself, my husband, and my daughter (now 15) have been faithful, delighted, customers since we first discovered Andrew and Gary’s oasis of papery loveliness in the Byward Market 19 years ago.
From its gorgeous selection of handmade papers, to its elegant stock of pens and pencils, to its curated stock of occasion cards (some of which are truly hilarious), to its thoughtful selection of nostalgic children’s toys, to the beautiful ornaments A & G always stock for Christmas, PaperPapier is a true wonderland.
And then there are the proprietors. Gary and Andrew are truly lovely. So gracious, so thoughtful, so kind, so helpful. The fact that they are both such elegant dressers must also be mentioned. Haha.
Sometimes I will just swing by to say hello. Partly because the shop is just so peaceful and makes me happy. But mostly because Gary and Andrew are surely two of the best souls on the planet. So, yup. From its paper to its people, PaperPapier is the place. Check it out! :)
