About request an edit to this page

The word Papyrus (pah·pie·rus) comes from the earliest form of paper crafted from the papyrus plant. Papyrus was founded in the family kitchen of Marcel and Margrit Schurman in 1950. Inspired by a love of fine art, they had a vision for products of uncompromising quality which provided the starting point from which genuine personal connections are made. They presented their products in an inviting gallery setting to encourage engagement with the products and with a friendly helpful staff.

55 years, 6,000 accounts, and over 150 stores later, Papyrus is the destination for celebrating life and all of its moments. Our Schurman Fine Papers corporate name and our Marcel Schurman brand will now be united behind one brand, Papyrus.

Under the leadership of Marcel’s and Margrit’s daughter, Dominique Schurman, Papyrus is charting a future shaped by modern, relevant and elegant design. In stores nationwide, Papyrus offers an ever-expanding array of products including custom printed announcements, products for entertaining, greeting cards, gift wrap, gift bags, stationery, note cards, journals and unique gift products.
