"I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can"
-George Bernard Shaw

Because we live, work and play here we're committed to doing our part to help improve the quality of life for all of us by giving back. Paper Image is the proud supporter of many nonprofit agencies throughout our community in Mid-Michigan. Below are a few we support in various ways.

About Us

Paper Image, formerly Paper Eater Print Shop, has been serving the area since 1975. Three former employees purchased the business in 1985, renaming it to Paper Image, via an employee contest. The number of owners is now down to one, me. I am joined by an incredibly brilliant collection of people, or should I say characters? Most of us have been working together for so long we can't remember life without each other. Missey and Todd round out our management team. When I retire they will take over.

Originally a paper writing service for MSU students hence the name Paper Eater), we have grown to a full service design, print, mail company. We have recently added Promotional Items to our list of ways to make customers happy.

Where We Spend Our Money Matters Studies show that for every $100 spent in a local business, $68 stays in our community, in comparison to $43 from a chain store, $0 for online purchases.
