Our Story

Two Hands Paperie began in 1993 as a small bindery with a few hand-bound books and a small rack of decorative paper. Today, 28 years later, we carry hundreds of journals and notebooks and over 30 racks of decorative paper, as well as cards, books, art supplies, fine writing instruments, and unique gifts from around the world. We also offer creative classes and host free events such as book signings, artists' lectures, and monthly letter writing events.  

Customers tell us how important Two Hands Paperie is to them and how they couldn't imagine Boulder without us. We couldn't imagine not being a part of such a wonderful community of creative people. 

Your support of our small family owned business ensures that we continue to be a source of inspiration in the Boulder community and beyond. 

We encourage YOU to pause, reflect, and make things with your own two hands!
