Papier Tigre was born in 2012. We are based in central creative Paris in the 3rd arrondissement at the number 5 Rue des Filles du Calvaire. We conceive, manufacture and retail a growing range of lovely items for your desk, your house and your written correspondence. We are very sensitive to colors, patterns, basic materials and new technologies - and we try to mix all of these into our great products. We try to go away as much as we can, often very far, often quite close to our every day life, to find new inspiration and give life to new ideas in our Paris office.
We handle the entire thing ourselves - from the idea to the retailling.
Everything is made from our Paris based office, we aim to pay a particular attention to creativity, materials, their origins, their quality.
We pick the very best of recycled papers and cardboards, from well managed forests in Europe - and have the great chance to work with French cardboard!
From France mainly, but also from Barcelona, Spain for three references and India for our fabric bags made of organic cottons.
Of course my dear : in our great shop in Paris, in the north Marais aera : 5 rue des Filles du Calvaire 75003 Paris.
This shop is open from Monday to Friday 11.30am to 7.30pm and Saturday from 11am to 8pm
And it is also our office :)
A lot is depending on your viewpoint :-) We usually produce enough to give you the best price and to answer to our clients - no more. Most of our items have therefor a short lifetime, usually they stay in our catalogue for 6 months.
Yes indeed! When an item is not stocked anymore it means it is really over. We change our designs and colors quite often - so that we can test new patterns, colors, and also to remain at the top of creativity and challenge ourselves regularly. Changing our products very often is also a very good solution to be way ahead of all the counterfeiting.
Maybe! We have more than 250 stockists worlwide, you might be luck to be closeby one of them - if not, you should move on :-) You can ask us about the possibilities with the contact form.

These delivery delays might slightly change according to the period of time - please watch your inboxes when you place an order, our shipping forwarders will give you a tracking number to check where your precious parcel is.
It is very easy, we love easy things - There is a flate rate for orders for France, 4 euros, and free when you reach 40 euros - Then if you need european there is a flat rate of 5 euros and delivery is free for orders over 50 euros - lucky you! Then, for International delivery outside europe the fees are calculated according to your order.
For orders to France we use Colissimo, the cheapest and also quickest. There is also Colissimo + that works with signature. For orders to Europe and other countries we work with the main shipping companies : Fedex / UPS / TNT.
No need to panik - most of the time your building intendant, your colleague or relative has signed in for the parel and did not tell you.
If not, here are the steps to get the things back to normal :
- Step1 : start to issue a personal claim directly to the shipping forwarder
- Step2 : please notify about the lost of the parcel. Do not forget to give us the details, order number, name, address so that we can also issue a claim ourselves to the shipping forwarder.
It is very important that you issue a claim before us.
It is up to you how you return the parcel, provided that the carrier includes a tracking option. This means that you cannot return an item by simply posting it using a postage stamp. If the product we receive is in perfect condition, in its original packaging, not open, then we can proceed to the refund. If you are very close to one of our shop you can also return your parcel this way.
No, no, no! Here it is all about modern methods, with your credit or debit card or with your paypal account.
Of course not!

We do not manufacture notebooks for other companies or brands. What we like to do instead is creative collaboration with a brand we like - please have in mind that we need to produce a lot of notebooks to keep the prices okay.
