Love paper? So do Alison Flippin, Jenni Laundon, and Emily Roberts, the “two sisters and one cousin” who founded E. Frances Paper, the paper goods company named for their grandmothers Elizabeth and Frances. Based in Middletown, this mission-driven business dedicated to spreading positivity has received attention from national magazines like Real Simple, Better Homes & Gardens, and Domino. And it’s no wonder, with subjects like sea life sporting bright nautical striped tees and camper vans topped with surfboards, each has the simple appeal of a day at the beach. Rendered in watercolor and printed on luxe paper, the charming line is perfect for scribbling notes, tagging gifts, and mailing (yes, snailmail) greetings from the Ocean State any time of year.
