Think on Paper .Co was started by Bruce Eimon, a long time veteran of the Silicon Valley. While working in the forefront of the digital revolution (Oracle, Yahoo, Adobe, Twitter), he became increasingly aware of the vast gap between people's willingness to spend a fortune on their mobile digital tools, while not thinking twice about the poor quality of their office supplies. Think on Paper .Co is dedicated to introducing high quality, reasonably priced Japanese stationery products to the American market to solve this problem.
Bruce Eimon was born and raised in Japan, where he gained first-hand knowledge of the broad range of high quality stationery products offered there. Since starting Think on Paper .Co, Bruce has built an extensive network of Japanese stationery manufacturers, retailers, and media figures. He writes a regular column in Japan’s leading high-end stationery magazine, 趣味の文具箱, titled “Bridging the stationery gap between America and Japan”. He also contributes a monthly article to America’s leading stationery blog, https://penaddict.com, featuring innovative Japanese stationery products. He is on the organizing committee of the Tokyo International Pen Show, and is the host of the monthly SF Stationery Meetup.
