(Vancouver, Canada)

Paper-Yaは、1986年に2人のアーティストによって立ち上げられました。以来、紙とステーショナリーのさまざまな楽しみ方を提案し続けています。「Ya」は日本語の「屋」からきています。店を意味し、さらにポジティブな響きも気に入って、店名をPaper-Ya としたそうです。


Since created in 1986 by two artists, The Original Paper-Ya helped pioneer the celebration of paper and stationery in all its amazing forms. “Ya” means store in Japanese and we like the positive sounding vibe of that, thus… Paper-Ya!

As our world changes, we continue to celebrate the new, the fresh, and the creative, and not just in paper. People come to our store from all over the world. We are very fortunate to be on Granville Island at the heart of our beautiful city, Vancouver. We thank all our wonderful customers for giving us all these wonderful years at Paper-Ya!

As we all know life is short and fleeting, so we say: “walk on the bright side, whenever you can!”
