About the Paper Gallery
Founded in 1980 the Paper Gallery has evolved from its original concept of picture framers and a gallery under the name of the Picture Framing Workshop to the more diverse business we have today.
Based on the idea of offering a comprehensive and professional picture framing service to the public of Lancaster and its surrounding area, a service which still forms a major part of our overall operation. However in 1985 in an attempt to introduce a lower priced, quality product to the gallery a small range of art based greetings cards were introduced. These proved so popular that research highlighted an obvious niche in the marketplace for cards which were unusual, well designed, well priced and above all reflected the modern times we were living in. This criteria is still as relevant today as it was then and still forms the basis of our buying policy.
From those early beginnings the product range has increased to other paper based and ancillary products to stationery and gift items, making us the largest independent greetings card retailer in the area. or as many of our customers refer to us as. "that really nice card shop".
