This Just In: Creatopia by Xyron

The Creatopia is a brand new machine released by Xyron, designed to apply adhesive to any piece of paper up to 12x12 in size! You are able to apply edge-to-edge adhesive onto items up to 12" wide and 1/2" thick. The machine comes with a permanent adhesive but removable, fabric, and laminate adhesive are also available. What makes the Creatopia unique from other machines is that besides applying adhesive to paper, it is also able to emboss and cut paper up to a 12x12 size. Embossing rollers and cutting tools are sold separately. The embossing rollers come in a variety of designs that add a unique border to your paper. The blades that are currently available are straight, deckled, scalloped, and postage stamp blades. More blade and embossing designs we be released by Xyron this winter. Stop in our store on Thursday December 3rd for a free demo on how to use the Creatopia! Once you see it in action, you'll have to have it!

Welcome to Anchor Paper Express

For those of you who are not familiar with Anchor Paper Express, I'll give you a quick run down on what makes us one of the most unique scrapbooking stores in the twin cities.

Currently we have two express stores, located in St. Paul near the U of M campus and in Plymouth off of Highway 55.  Our store hours are:

What makes Anchor Paper Express unique from all other scrap booking stores in the twin cities is the fact that we have a connected warehouse full of paper.  We have a variety of papers and envelops that could be used for scrapbooking, card making, and other crafting needs.  At each location we have an industrial sized cutter that gives us the ability to cut large quantity of paper to any desired size!  Our warehouse paper is priced $9.50 per pound and envelopes are $15.50 per pound (excludes individually priced envelopes), these prices are convenient for our customers because you are able to get more paper and envelopes for your money compared to another scrapbooking stores.  We also have the option of selling certain papers in packages and reams, which may be a more cost effective buy depending on the type and quality of paper you're looking for.  The same goes for envelopes too.  The warehouse might be an intimidating place to walk into on your first visit, but feel free to ask for help!  We have a very friendly and knowledgeable staff willing to help and answer any questions you may have!

Not only are we a paper warehouse but more excitingly we have a connected retail store filled with all sorts of scrapbooking and card making items!  We have a variety of stamps, punches, inks, papers, accessories, embellishments, machines...the list goes on! You name it, we more than likely got it!  Come check us out!
