An exceptional group of creative people growing day by day, and every day studying for the brand the most amazing patterns and more original greetings to offer to their whimsical customers.

Do not wait for special occasions to celebrate! Can't every day be a happy non-birthday?
Paperbanana is a company founded by Federica Bianchi and Marco Vitolo fulfilling a long-lasting desire: to create a business in the field of wrapping paper and greeting cards, different from the usual items of that kind and offering creative and original objects that are also eco-friendly. Driven by a passion for the culture behind the world of gift wrapping paper, they have created Paperbanana.com with the aim of providing an amazing selection of wrapping papers for gift items, greeting cards and all you need to wrap your precious gifts.
A nice gift from the heart must be beautiful also on the outside: it must be completed with a personalized greeting card and packed with imagination. Paperbanana is always looking for new artists and creative people who have the determination and spirit to propose innovative ideas to promote the art of packaging; for this reason the brand collaborates with illustrators from all over the world. A continuous search for inventiveness, creativity and genius also coming from different cultures and traditions, to ensure the end customer always the best choice. It is thanks to this business approach that Paperbanana can transform the simple moments of everyday life into something truly magical and full of love.
Who would not appreciate a thought from the heart, sophisticated and studied in detail in order to reflect as much as possible the personality of the person who receives it? Wrapping paper and greeting cards with patterns and themes for every occasion: to celebrate love, Christmas, birthdays, weddings, births, children and much more. If you want to send original wishes for a special occasion to more than one person, Paperbanana has created some boxes that include more tickets and white or coordinated envelopes; so with only one purchase, you can sent a sweet thought to more people.
The Paperbanana production is not limited to wrapping paper and gift cards; among its collection you will also find the fun Colouring Books such as "Bon Voyage" created by the designer Elisa Ferro. "Bon Voyage" is a colouring book, a journey through the imagination of Elisa Ferro where you will find unicorns, cats, enchanted forests and cities, all to discover. Ten images to colour using pencils or markers, and in addition each table can be cut and framed. The book contains a 19x45 cm sheet of wrapping paper ideal for the most precious thoughts.
Greeting cards especially for children, fun designs that you can have coloured by your children and then send to friends and family. "Colouring Zoo" is one of the examples offered by Paperbanana, made by the designer Ikimi in cane sugar paper.
Federica Bianchi and Marco Vitolo are the founders of Paperbanana, and they are also the perfect proof that you can successfully combine love and professional life. Both lovers of wrapping paper and greeting cards (even before they met each other), at some point they decided to stop dreaming and actually set up the Paperbanana project.
At one point, they stopped to make do with what they found nearby, and they decided to create what was not there, yet: a cool brand, modern and ironic, inspired by what they saw abroad, both in terms of styles of occasions. And in addition, a brand that is eco-friendly.
Federica Bianchi and Marco Vitolo are a couple committed to an innovative project, but they are also partners in life. Luckily, they have complementary personalities, both for skills and attitude. Marco Vitolo has been working for more than ten years in the computer world and he is a real lover of new technologies. Curious and optimistic, he does not take no for an answer. His three-year experience in Dublin prepared to manage changes, a quality that led him to leave a permanent job to create Paperbanana.
Federica Bianchi has dealt with communication for over ten years: she used to work with advertising agencies, video production, MySpace Italy (Fox Interactive Media) and Young & Rubicam Group. Not surprisingly, her task is about the relationship with the artists, publishings and the management of social media channels. Together with this couple, the Paperbanana team also includes Giuseppe Piazza, a UX designer and front-end developer, and Mirco Santori, IT Architect.
Paperbanana is a young startup, but it is already a brand that is worth to believe in. The art of "dressing" gifts: when form is important as much as substance.
