About Us

Papers & Presents owner, Carolyn McCoy, started her stationery business in 1988 while living in Beacon Hill and working full-time in downtown Boston. Initially she carried albums in the trunk of her car and pulled them out at every opportunity to sell stationery, invitations, and birth announcements. Today, almost 29 years later, she is the owner of a very successful business in Wellesley, Massachusetts. Raised in southern Virginia, Carolyn's inspiration for the business came from an adorable stationery store in her hometown of Martinsville, Virginia (thank you, Janice). The staples of the business are the wonderful paper products - the personalized stationery, the irresistible invitations, notable notepads, classic correspondence, and gift tags. The "Presents" part of Papers & Presents, however, is comprised of very unique custom gifts. We are mad about monograms. After all, if something isn't monogrammed, is it really yours? Our clients come from all over the greater Boston area to shop Papers & Presents. Much of our business is word of mouth referrals. Additionally, great relationships have been built with our large base of repeat customers. Through the years, Carolyn has consistently been recognized as one of the top dealers in the country.
