About Geographics


Geographics was founded in Vancouver,   Canada in  1974. The business  moved to Blaine, Washinghton and in  2002, Geographics was  acquired by  Mafcote Inc,  a family business  with a tradition of over 100 years,  the oldest   manufacturer of Royal Lace® paper doilies, and one of the  largest paper  coating companies in the US.

The Geographics® Brand Image was introduced in 1992. GeoPaper® by  Geographics was to  become the  leader in high-quality desktop  publishing paper sold throughout the United States, Europe and Australia.

GeoPaper® was sold in fine displays through retail stores. These  designer paper products and fine papers became soon, widely available  and  desirable.
GeoPaper® was a new  concept meant for the small  businesses who could  not afford  or care to have a business identity or  professionally designed logos.
It also became interesting   for  schools and home users who needed a paper  to enhance their message,  something they could  personalize  and print fast.
 "Grab  attention", "Make a bold statement" and “Do it Yourself” were the three  large benefits that a customer could get with GeoPaper® . All of these,  at an affordable price. Just what he needed.
The idea was to offer  pre-printed business sets or  ensambles where coordinating designs in  letterheads, envelopes, tri-fold  brochures, business cards, tent cards,  post cards, note cards and  mailing labels, would satisfy every  business need for paper and  collateral materials.
The designer  stationery for  personal use  had a large variety of uses from cards and  invitations, menus, press  releases, resumes, fliers, reports,  certificates, diplomas, awards,  posters, newsletters, announcements,  poems, notices, programs and signs,  to notes, memos, correspondence,   quotations and more.
Also,  Geographics offered and still offers a  line of Executive Class of   unprinted Premium Paper or Fine Paper  like  Granite, Marble, Parchment,  Speckled, Sonora  and more.
