Cincy Chic: What is Rock Paper Store?
Molly Grosse, founder and artist at Rock Paper Store: Rock Paper Store is an online store where we sell our very unique artist paper. Rock Paper is a brand of paper with qualities both similar and different than fiber/pulp-based papers. Rock Paper gives the artist/crafter an opportunity to create in alternative ways because of its proprietary binder which gives it waterproof properties, durability and the ability to stretch. These properties make it perfect for many uses.
Cincy Chic: What’s the inspiration behind it?
Grosse: The inspiration behind Rock Paper is that I saw a unique material that offers a new and exciting product to artists and crafters all over the world.
Cincy Chic: Who’s behind it?
Grosse: Rock Paper Store was co-founded by Mary Lehrter and myself, a mother/daughter team. Mary is the inventor and I am the artist.
Cincy Chic: What products do you currently offer?
Grosse: Currently we offer packs of Rock Paper ranging from 6×6 inches-12×12 inches in our very unique color choices.
Cincy Chic: What makes Rock Paper Store unique?
Grosse: Many things but mainly our colored papers. Even though we are not the only rock/stone/mineral based paper company on the market we have yet to find another company who creates the unique color choices we offer. Plus, Rock Paper is unique because it’s waterproof, archival, insect resistant, and is made with an eco-friendly production process.
Cincy Chic: When did you launch Rock Paper store?
Grosse: We officially launched July 29, 2018
Cincy Chic: Is there anything new on the horizon for 2021?
