If you've ever called us or sent us a message, we may well have been in contact before. Can you guess why?
Correct - I am the paper republic customer happiness officer, here to answer all your questions and make sure you get the very best experience! 
I thought it was time to tell you a little about myself, so you know who is at the other end of the line or behind the other screen.

My name is Claire. I started working at paper republic last Autumn, and couldn't be happier to spend time with this crazy bunch, between rolls of leather, stacks of paper, and decade-old plants, which make me feel like I'm working on a tropical island. 

Speaking of tropical islands, one of my favourite things in life is to travel. I recently came back from a trip to Porto, Portugal, which awakened my passion for travelling again, after two years of putting travel plans on hold. 

During my travels, my grand voyageur [pocket] in chestnut follows me everywhere I go. It's so easy to carry around in any bag or pocket, and has become an essential travel companion for me, keeping my passport and documents safe. I use it to plan my upcoming trips, make lists of places to visit, and write down thoughts and ideas when I'm out and about.

Discovering the world and writing about it gives me a feeling of freedom. I like to travel light and stay spontaneous, so this little pocket journal setup I assembled for myself works perfectly: I use a clip pocket which I can easily add to or remove from my journal, a variety of pocket notebooks, and I love to write with my Ohto pen, with its virtually ever-lasting refills, slowly filling my journal with a constant flow of ink and ideas.
I hope this will inspire you to write, travel, enjoy life and live your dreams.

Wishing you a beautiful week ahead!

From Vienna with love,

CHO (Customer Happiness Officer)
