About Us

Paperwhite is a unique stationery boutique located on Kentucky Street in Petaluma’s historic downtown.   Our storefront, designed in the tradition of a lively, old-world atelier and set in a turn-of-the-century downtown area, draws shoppers from around the Wine Country and Bay Area.  

Paperwhite offers a captivating assortment of exquisite papers, unique gifts, stationery, cards, journals, writing accessories, and other fabulous finds.  Paperwhite also offers a wide range of custom printing services to meet your needs for life’s special events. 

Paperwhite has been in the business of documenting special events and memories for special clients since 2008. We continue to offer custom printing services (including the lost art of Letterpress) for all occasions, design preferences, and budgets. We pride ourselves in finding the perfect fit for our customers. Our Paperwhite storefront opened in March of 2008 and includes a great selection of stationery and gifts for loved ones, including those hard-to-buy-for friends. Stop by our store in Petaluma or shop our online store.
