There are many occasions in life that require fancy invitations. When a couple decides to wed they send ornate cards requesting your presence (and presents). Should you attend the happy occasion, you'll receive another card thanking you for the glassware/oven mitts/re-gifted quesadilla maker. Later, you'll receive yet another card informing you they're expecting (both a baby and more gifts). Then, when their progeny graduates... you get the idea.

Boise's Paperie + Pen has all the paper products you might need to celebrate your nephew's birthday, neighbor's grandson's bar mitzvah or best friend's "Single and Loving It" party. Besides paper in every color and shade, Paperie + Pen also has jewelry, journals, wrapping paper and stationery which can be mixed and matched to make perfect gifts.

One of the best reasons to stop in to Paperie + Pen, though, is the giant paper cutter. Looming in the back like a guillotine, the machine can cut through huge reams like Paul Bunyon chopping through a forest. Each slice costs only $1, so the staff can help you make whatever you need, cheap.

As a note in the store reads, "Don't underestimate the power of a handwritten note." At Paperie + Pen, the pen (and the paper cutter) is mightier than the sword.
