Print Your Own Scrapbook Paper—By the Sheet
Craft Sassy Focuses on Custom Scrapbook Papers for the Consumer
(TIGARD, OR. November 15, 2008) Craft Sassy, a custom scrapbook paper printer, decided to create their own niche in the ultra-competitive scrapbook industry. Rather than joining the masses of scrapbook paper designers and manufacturers, they decided to give the power back to the people.
“I would walk up and down scrapbook paper aisles and never find the exact paper I needed. And I kept bumping into other women who were searching too,” said Maura Perry, the owner of Craft Sassy. “I knew the printing process could be taken directly to the people—allowing them to design and print the specific scrapbook paper they wanted. It was just a matter of logistics.”
Craft Sassy was born when Perry shared her vision with her husband, Scott, who is a pre-press manager at Metropolitan Printing based in Tigard, OR. Together they devised an easy-to-use interface which allows a customer to upload a digital file or image (any .jpg, .tif, .bmp or .png file) which can then be printed onto a variety of paper styles. The result is a single sheet of scrapbook paper, custom designed by the consumer.
Craft Sassy’s website, www.craftsassy.com, allows consumers to design and order the exact scrapbook paper they need. Each customers order is:
- Unlimited—there is no minimum quantity.
- Digitally printed with full bleed.
- Available in standard 12” by 12” size as well as a variety of smaller sizes.
- Printed on acid-free and lignin-free paper with environment-friendly inks.
- Printed on a variety of weights, including standard 65# cover stock, vellum, double sided, etc.
Retail prices for an individual 12” by 12” piece of scrapbook paper are similar to specialty paper found in scrapbook stores. Specialty papers, double sided printing and rush fees increase the per page price. Wholesale pricing is also available with a valid tax id. Pricing is available on request for wholesale accounts.
“Since launching, we have witnesses the amazing diversity our customer’s imaginations. From hard-to-find sports pages to children’s artwork—there is no limit to the scrapbook papers we can print,” said Perry. “We are anxious to see what else comes across the printer.”
