About The Paper Bureau
The Paper Bureau opened its virtual doors in 2021. We love wall art. Our aim is to be an emporium of uniquely designed art for your walls.
The Paper Bureau is ran by a small family business called Uncommon Tee. I (Samuel, Uncommon Tee’s founder) started the company in 2017 in my makeshift office under the stairs. Where I steadily grew my clothing business into the success it is today.
One day while staring at my blank office walls, I went searching for high quality artwork. As someone who loves everything Japanese, I knew what I wanted. I also didn’t want to worry about having to find a frame that would fit, I wanted just to place an order and for everything to arrive at my door.
Unfortunately I just couldn’t find anything. Instead of giving up, I decided to do it myself. This is how The Paper Bureau was born.
We search the web, old archives and books looking for amazing artwork. We give them a good clean up to make them look new again and convert them into beautiful prints for your walls.
Along with our archival collections, we also create unique artwork from scratch either by independent artists or me!
We use thick museum quality paper, fade resistant inks and a choice of lightweight natural wooden frames on every print.
We love everything Japanese and minimalism, this is what we infuse into everything we do here at The Paper Bureau.
We’re sure that you’ll find something you like.
