At Paperchase, we’ll champion you to bring your unique best self to work – giving you the opportunity to challenge yourself in new and exciting ways. Here, you can be confident you’ll be accepted and loved for who you are, as we celebrate one another's differences and individual talents.

Our story started in the swinging sixties with two fresh-thinking and bold art and design students who created popping graphic prints and patterns and applied to stationary, wrap and cards. Several decades later, the creative spirit that inspired the start of Paperchase is still going strong at our Paperchase Studios.

  • Keen to be green

    We’re starting to reduce and offset our carbon footprint, including by working with more local suppliers. We’re also upping the feel-good factor of your favourite things by making more of our products and packaging recyclable.

  • Planet-friendly paper

    Paper is precious to us and to the planet, which is why all – yes, all! – of our paper products are made from FSC-certified or sustainable sources. We also hug trees to make sure they know how much we appreciate them.

  • Less plastic is fantastic

    We are parting ways with plastic wherever possible across our products, packaging and online deliveries. Our gift cards are now made from paper instead of single-use plastic.

    Multi site Manager

    “I joined Paperchase in 2017 as Operations Manager of the then Glasgow Flagship store, managing all things "Back of House". Following a restructure, my role became Assistant Store Manager, which quickly progressed to Store Manager. This was an exciting time as I became much more customer facing and got the opportunity to lead a much bigger team.

    In 2020, I was promoted to Dual Site Manager, taking on responsibility for our
    Silverburn store, which was around the same time we closed the Flag and relocated to our new site on Buchanan Street. Following the opening of Braehead and Byres Road, so I am now a fully-fledged Multi Site Manager. As well as the day-to-day, I am a Mental Health First Aider and I also support the Studio team
    with exciting projects - busy busy!!

    I love making others happy. It’s a joy getting to know my colleagues on a personal level. I also have this uncanny ability to never forget a face... so, I love surprising a regular customer when I ask them about something we've
    chatted about on a previous visit - I think it really makes them feel valued.

    I love being part of the North Area....it's never a dull moment and there is always a colleague I can reach out to for support or a laugh''
