About Us

Paper Packaging Place

Paper Packaging Place was established in 1991 by Lorraine Claven, as a small home based business.  Every year we add new ranges & expand existing ones.  Our products are sourced locally as well as internationally.  Most of our products are designed in-house and are aligned to International trends where possible.  Our mission is to create products that are exciting & creative, catering for the retail, boutique and corporate sectors. All our products are manufactured to the highest International standards of design & quality.

Our beautiful showroom at our offices in Olivedale, Johannesburg.

Our Packaging Range

We spend a considerable amount of time on our product development.   We carry a large range of generic items from paper bags to giftwrap and ribbons, that are available to our clients “off the shelf”.  We also offer you the option to personalise any of the stock items we carry thereby enabling you to put together a comprehensive packaging story for your business.

We carry a large range of paper carrier bags that are manufactured locally to the highest international standard.  They are available in a variety of sizes, colours and finishes and can be customised to suite your specific needs.  Our range of paper packets (bags without handles) is comprehensive and inexpensive.  Our giftwraps designs and colours are sourced internationally and change regularly in line with the latest trends.  Our tissue papers, both design and plain colours are imported from a mill in the USA, allowing us to bring you the very best quality at the most competitive prices locally available.  We have sourced our range of organza ribbon, satin ribbon and poly ribbon from the East and together with some lovely locally available stock we can offer you quite an extensive ribbon range.  Several of our products have been part of the range since we opened in 1991. This has been as a result of our customers “demand”.  You will find many more exciting new products on this site and we hope you have many happy hours of browsing and shopping.

Fun & Straightforward

We make shopping with us fun and straightforward and our competent staff are always on hand to assist. No matter how small the enquiry, we can always help create a product to personalize an image, be it with a printed paper bag or a simple sticker.

Today, Paper Packaging Place is a strong and well established company who’s first 28 years have been both fun and exciting.  We look forward to many more years of making the products that make you look GREAT!
