Man’s love affair with paper began more than 2, 000 years ago in China and we owe its invention to T’sai Lun (about 105AD). Understandably, he soon became the god of papermakers.
The history of writing goes back to Ancient Egypt. Even the word “paper” comes from papyrus, a plant that was abundant in Egypt and used to produce a thick, paper-like material used by Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. Another predecessor of paper was “tapa”, a kind of cloth born in the Islands of the Pacific Ocean and from the inner bark of fig, daphne and mulberry trees.
Today, we see and use paper for both practical and artistic purposes. From storing and filing data to wrapping our food or packages to creating art, at TheRoyalStore.com, our love of paper is at the heart of everything we do. One of our favorite products is our wide and varied selection of Design Paper. We love Design Paper as it brings together two elements we value – practical use and beauty.
How to use and enjoy Design Paper:

Think about it, in a world where digital has become the norm, don’t you feel special when someone sends a letter? They thought about you while choosing a paper style and envelope. They’ve added a personal hand message instead of using a computer. Not to mention love letters…
