kathrinspapier is taking a short break
Note from shop owner
Environmentally friendly and special stationery
1. Kathrin's paper has been around since 2012
In a very difficult time for me, I started to design my own wrapping paper and cards. Kathrin's paper has been around since then.
With my small label I have fulfilled a dream. Designing helped me a lot over my low at the time. And it still helps me when I have to process a lot of things. It has a therapeutic effect for me. I am in a different, better world. That's exactly what I want to express with my products. I hope you can feel that when you look at my products.
2. This is environmentally friendly with Kathrin's paper
When I was at Paperworld in Frankfurt before I was founded, there weren't many companies that paid attention to environmentally friendly products. Maybe they've already done things for it. Advertised with it, made visible to the outside world, few have it.
It was clear to me that I wanted to produce wrapping paper as environmentally friendly as possible. In the beginning, I was not aware that I would reach my limits very quickly with my small purchase quantities. So that I can regularly offer you new motifs, I have to make compromises from time to time.
3. I always pay attention to this:
Regionality/ Production in Germany
It annoyed me immensely when I bought a beautiful wrapping paper and tore it at the corners when packing. Firstly, this is frustrating and, secondly, it is also a waste. I don't want that.
It is important to me that my products are produced in Germany. I don't have a house and yard print shop because I offer so many different products.
With Kathrin's paper, environmentally friendly also means that I show you examples and give you ideas that you can make from used gift wrapping paper or leftovers. I don't just want to sell you paper, I want to help you make beautiful things yourself.

4. Environmentally conscious means:
Pay attention to quality that is right for the purpose. That is very important to me.
That my paper is not coated and can be fed back into the waste paper cycle.
That I order quantities that I can store and that I can sell off.
That I test new products and, if necessary, implement them with my own printer.

Gift wrapping and packaging
For a small surcharge of 4€ I will be happy to pack your order. Select it in the ordering process.If it goes directly to your favorite person, write me a message to order.
My wrapping paper can be ironed very well. Place your iron on the lowest level and gently iron over the paper. It is best to put a baking paper in between.The tea towels are digitally printed. Please iron them once from the back before washing. Wash them at a maximum of 40 degrees Celsius. Otherwise, the pressure will fade very quickly.
What papers do you use?
I generally use recycled papers that are awarded the Blue Angel or the Euroflower.In the kraft paper you can see very well colored dots. They come from the waste paper used.As alternatives, I use grass paper or denim paper.
What printing inks do you use?
I have small runs printed digitally or print them myself with my laser printer.I have larger runs printed with vegetable oil-based inks.The kraft papers are printed with water-based inks. Therefore, they are unfortunately not suitable for cabochon jewelry.
How do you send the wrapping paper?
I generally send folded. My paper can be ironed well -> see care instructions.When you order, select "Rolled Shipping". Then comes the paper as a roll. The postage is automatically increased and I ship with DHL.
What is grass paper?
Grass paper is made from grass and fresh pulp (trees). It smells slightly of hay and looks very nice. It has a speckled surface where you can see individual plant fibers.
