Paper Mart Celebrates 98 Years Throughout August

Our birthday month has arrived and we are so excited for the upcoming celebrations. Before we jump into what we have in store, let us first take a look back at where we’ve been and where we’re going. 

98 Years Of High-Quality, Affordable Packaging

Back in 1921, we were fulfilling orders from our small, Los Angeles garage. We were known as California Towel & Linen Supply and G.A. Frick served as both salesman and delivery man while his wife Emma handled the bookkeeping. Like any new business in the 1920’s, times were tough. We went through many challenges as a company and as a country, narrowly surviving both the Great Depression and World War II.

Through these hardships, we focused on offering quality products to the Los Angeles area. We even expanded our product offerings to consumables like paper towels, janitorial, and shipping supplies. It is during this time that second generation son Robert Frick assumed leadership and we were known as, Frick Paper Co

With dreams to grow the company even further, third generation son, John Frick adjusted our business model to a regional discount mail order catalog business. This was a game changing business decision and Paper Mart made its mark.

John Frick was later joined by his brother Tom Frick and under their leadership, we grew our reach even further and took on the world wide web in 1995 as one of the first companies to add images to text! A decision which was novel and innovative. 

Today, under the leadership of fourth generation daughter, Buffy Frick Simoni, we continue the Paper Mart tradition of supplying quality products at an affordable price.

We supply countless businesses, classrooms, and more with retail, food, and industrial packaging. We have sponsored local craft conferences, participated in social outreach, and even helped make dreams come true. 

To celebrate, we’re filling the month with parties, promos, and giveaways of all sorts. Check it out.
