I've only had the pleasure of stepping into this fine store twice, but both times were amazing.

A friend of mine had some party cups I just had to get my hands on. Went in to grab them and was out on no time. I put my blinders on when I was there, I could spend my entire paycheck and more here. The gift wrap is what blows me away. I heart giving gifts, and using their wrapping paper is the icing on the cake.

The second time I had a girlfriend in need of some ink and in a bind to make some UBER important menu cards for a wedding. PS was closing and she was no where around to grab the ink herself. The friendly staff at PS had the ink waiting for me as soon as I walked in.

If you find yourself in need of cute thank you cards or the perfect gift wrap, get your butt to Paper Source, you won't be disappointed!

This is the best place in town for unique paper. You can make your own invitations, stationary, or whatever else. The product is GREAT, staff is helpful, but prices are pretty steep. Recommended if you are creative and either are just buying a few things or are not on a budget.

If you like stationery, unique papers and cute gifts this is the store for you. There is a lot of inspiration if you are at all crafty. There is a great selection of 8.5x11" colored papers, cardstock, and matching envelopes, and a large selection of handmade papers. The staff has always been extremely helpful as well and will go out of the way to get what you need. They also offer a wide variety of classes. Some of the items are somewhat pricey though.

PROS: A fun, creative store with a great staff
CONS: You can spend a lot quickly
