About


Vintage Paper Co is an Orkney based mail order supplier of bookbinding kits, bookbinding needles, repair tapes for paper and out-of-production British handmade and mould-made papers for printmaking, conservation and bookbinding.

Our story began quite by accident over 5 years ago when, down on our luck, our founder, William, decided he had to sell some excess old papers on eBay and driven by a fear of having to get a proper job, he never stopped! 

Still led by William, we are based in Stromness, Orkney which is a little town on an island just off the northernmost tip of Scotland. It's a beautiful place with wonderful scenery, wildlife, northern lights and incredible neolithic history.  

Driven by our passion for old British fine-art paper and quality bookbinding supplies we try to source and produce the best products that we can. 

Our customers range from the first-time bookbinder, experienced printmakers, museums, libraries, schools, private individuals wanting to mend their old bible and perhaps you too? Everyone's welcome and if you're ever in Stromness look us up, we'd love to meet you.
