We’re always feeling creative at Cardboard Safari. One of our designers, Louis Shultz is also a skilled cabinet maker. Being resourceful he is building a product-development prototyping table for our design team, Louis (himself) and Nate Main. The table will be a very functional work station for their exploratory minds creating new product mockups.
We love French Paper – Here at Cardboard Safari we love the many beautiful choices created by the French Paper Company, America’s family run paper mill established in 1871 and is in its sixth-generation, family-owned, iconic designer paper manufacturing. Celebrating their 141st Anniversary this year 2012. They even produce their paper using hydro-electric power.
