About Us

Forget Me Knot Papers - DIY Paper.com has been selling blank invitations and papers since 1914.

Our doors first opened in 1914 by Griffin Thompson and his son Lee as Thompson Paper, Inc. at 8th and Central in the Graphic Arts Section of Downtown Kansas City relocating to 9th and Broadway and then 20th and Central in the Art District until 2006.

Our earliest customers included Walt Disney who had a small studio up the street and Hallmark Cards, both when they were just starting out and not yet the household names they are today.

We still have some great framed artwork that Walt traded out for papers (he often traded out his advertising services as money for paper was sparse!!!)

Our family has catered to brides and the graphics arts industry from day one and have always carried the highest quality papers and envelopes available.

Our goal is to have the easiest diy print your own wedding invitations solution with papers, templates and tips.

Over the next month we will be posting 100's of templates on everything from invitations, programs and envelopes to hard to find quinceanera samples.

We will be inviting anyone and everyone to share any non licensed templates or design tips they may have.
