Today I am going to recommend you a paper shop that was really popular when I was a teenager. Yes, it is 555 PaperPlus.
This shop is well-known for cute and lovely letter papers, note papers, and die-cut cards. The unique thing is how they sell the paper; they sell it by weight. In the past, the shop was always crowded with teenager and also adult who were having fun selecting the variety of designed papers.
I have not visited this shop for a while. Today I walked pass the shop while walking in MBK Center shopping mall, and I decided to stop by and have a look. The shop has changed a lot. It is not that crowded, and the shop sells more products. I guess maybe because the technology has changed, nowadays not so many people send a letter to each other.
The ‘sell by weight’ is still there. The envelops, letter papers, and die-cuts cards are also there.
The paper boxes, paper bags, gift boxes, bakery boxes, and personal gifts are available. All products are lovely as always.
Besides, from its website, the shop also provides custom services such as custom made paper packaging, custom made envelope, custom made name card, and so on.
If you are in Bangkok and looking for a lovely paper, card, box, or bag, you can have a look at this shop or check its website.
Update: January, 2014
Location/ How to get there: The shop has a head office in Samutsakorn Province and 7 branches in shopping malls in Bangkok and around. MBK Center is the only branch that you can reach by BTS; the shop is located at the third floor, Tokyu zone.
