Paper Pizazz® Retailer Scoop

What's the Scoop?
Hot Off The Press is turning 30! 30 years ago we started as a kitchen-table endeavor with one dough art book (You Can Dough It!). Five years later, we had lots of craft books including fabric applique, floral arranging, Friendly Plastic jewelry, polymer clay and kids crafts. We published fabric painting books with iron-on transfers and our beading books remain best-sellers. We've designed cardmaking products since 1995.
We published the very first scrapbook idea book (Snip Your Snapshots), the first book of scrapbooking papers and the first open stock bulk papers. We even designed the first wire racks for open stock papers and they're still used by JoAnn's today. We've proudly held the Disney license since 1997.
Along the way, we've won 31 Awards of Excellence in the Craft & Hobby Industry plus 3 Marketing Awards of Excellence. Yes, we're pretty proud!
Best of all, the very best of all, we've been privileged to work with talented designers, creative & hard working staff, wonderful suppliers & consultants, supportive retailers & buyers plus a world of consumers who simply love making things and especially love using HOTP products. It's been an amazing ride and we're prepared for 30 more! Looks like You Can Dough It was an appropriate title for our company and our first book.
