Remember the days when sending a card would mean getting out the scissors, glue and glitter, rather than making a dash for the nearest newsagents? Well, you'll be embracing your inner creative once again when you discover paper producer G.F. Smith's new online boutique, The Paper Smith.

Its no secret that we're a nation obsessed with stationery and paper goods, with the current trend for paper crafting and making things hitting an all time high. So good timing then, for the launch of this delectable emporium of fine paper products.

Founded in 1885, G.F. Smith is a pioneer of its industry, supplying creative industries with papers and cards of exceptional quality. And now, for the first time ever, all 50 colours of its celebrated Colourplan range are available as paper, card, folded card and matching envelopes with no minimum order.

So, you can finally get stuck into crafting those wedding invites, Christmas cards (yes, we know it's only April, but it's never too early to start planning), your one-off work of art, etc. etc. Not only that, but G.F. Smith's other, snazzier collections will be available, including metallic, marbled-effect, pearlised and iridescent cards, so you can have fun mixing it up to suit the craft project you're working on. Paper's never been so exciting...
