New York

 Up With Paper, the world’s leading marketer of innovative three dimensional greeting cards, unveiled its new line of Pop-Up Desktop Notes at the 2012 National Stationery Show today.  The new line, which will launch with four everyday designs, shipping in July, provides a fashionable new way to store and present note paper.  

With exquisite designs and innovative pop-ups, a durable flip-top cover that snaps shut with a magnetic closure, and a 125-page notepad of 60-pound-stock, designed note paper, each Pop-Up Desktop Notes box is designed to brighten any desktop AND be a readily available accessory to record the newest idea.  A locking mechanism props open the lid to display the pop-ups and 5 1/8 x 3 3/8-inch note paper inside for retail display, and for displaying on any desk or counter top.

The Pop-Up Desktop Notes line, which will be available exclusively in the specialty card and gift market, may be merchandised on any store shelf, and has a suggested retail price of $15.99 per box.  The line extends Up With Paper’s UWP Luxe high-end stationery line, which successfully launched in 2011 with a range of Pop-Up Boxed Notes.

The Desktop Notes include a variety of designs, created under the eye of Up With Paper’s Vice President and Creative Director, Monika Brandrup, to fit the style and mood of a broad cross-section of consumers.
