From French Paper:

"As we approach our 150th anniversary we have started to gather and reflect on past printed materials and promotional items. Seeing everything together, we knew this collection was too cool to keep to ourselves and that we had to bring the collection back to the people that made it all possible.

With that, The French Paper Road to 150 Tour was born. An exhibit made up of 30 plus years of historical items will be traveling around the country, piloted by the French family themselves. City by city, the Road to 150 Tour will bring new meaning to the term work and turn.

The design and print communities are truly the reason that French Paper is able to reach this goal, so we are dedicated to taking this tour as far and wide as possible."
