Pacon Corporation (Art Supplies) Review by Lisa Barthuly & Family

Pacon Corporation
2525 N. Casaloma Drive
Appleton, WI 54913-8865

If you are looking for high quality paper and craft supplies, you have found a happy home! Pacon supplies not only a vast array of paper types from tissue, watercolor, poster board, lined writing, construction, cardstock, tempera paint paper, sketch books, art rolls for the wall or for large colorful crafts, easel rolls, drawing, photo printer, corrugated, borders, tag board, presentation boards and headers, pre-cut frames, and I have still not even begun to finish with the types of paper they supply! There other specialties are: craft supplies of foam, wooden beads, glitter, bead loom kits, various plastic beads, stickers, chenille stems, glitter dots, color twists, pom poms, wiggly eyes, gemstones and jewels, confetti, bells, feathers, origami, stick art tape, and cellophane wrap. They also carry sturdy wooden easels, beautiful richly colored yarns of all thicknesses and types, puzzles, and various Treasure Chests; samplers of wood, paper, puppets, glitter, or beads. Even after all this, I am still not covering all of their amazing products. Suffice it to say this company has it ALL! If you are looking for truly high quality, colorful, and varied craft and paper items, you need look no further. Their website is thorough and it will guide you to a local source for purchase. We love our Pacon products!

Their tissues come in an amazing variety of colors, and if your children are like mine, hands on craft time is a highlight of any given day! The Origami foils even come with project ideas. These were challenging. We love making all kinds of things, and the children are never short of imaginative ideas! The pinwheel is a good basic origami project to start with, there were also project ideas for making a frog, bird and butterfly!
