It was frPaperworld 2011 Messe Frankfurt. Photo ©2011Teddy Crispin eezing cold in Frankfurt am Main in Germany, when between January 29th, and February 1st, 2011, the Paperworld trade fair at the Messe Frankfurt took place.


The light grey sky was slowly entering the people’s souls, and very few people, in the trade fair’s time frame, would dare to go out there in the open cold of the streets, and if so, only under the warm reassurance of their thick garments.


Others, nevertheless, would dare to cope with this inconvenient martial and cold winter: people having their say in the paper business world and genuine people having an interest in this major element of human history.This major tool in the preservation of human thought, and its transmission to the following generations. Isn’t it wonderful opening a book, to realize in the process of reading a word, a line, a paragraph, a page, in the process of reading this material element called paper, that it is all about immateriality, that it is all about an author’s thoughts having survived centuries, and even more, millennia.


Yes, the world was present to this great paper celebration without forgetting all those apparels going along with paper: office supplies, school articles, printers, computers, gift articles, wrapping, greeting cards, picture calendars, licensed articles, office paper, household paper, party and festive articles…


The world, indeed, gathered to this great paper celebration like Melchiors, Caspars and Balthazars.


We’ll cite: Egypt, of course, for the name of paper seems to originate from the famous Egyptian papyrus. Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, China : a great country in the paper history, Denmark, Germany bringing us back to the memory of Johannes Gutenberg, Johann Fust and Peter Schöffer, Ecuador, El Salvador, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Honduras, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Jordan, Canada;


Colombia, The Republic of Korea, Croatia, Kuwait, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Macao, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, New Zealand, Holland, Pakistan, Peru, The Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Syria, Taiwan, Thailand, Czech Republic, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, Hungary, United Kingdom, Vietnam, Cyprus…


The International Paper Trade Fair, at the Messe Frankfurt, in Frankfurt am Main, in Germany, is a good opportunity to discover enterprises and products of interest. I would like to thank the following persons and enterprises for their collaboration and information, very helpful in the making of this report:


Mr Yoko Sasakawa from OHTO co., Ltd, whose soft ballpoint pen « est Grip ceramic roller Black » caught our attention.


Mr Daniel Busse from the enterprise holzpost GmbH from Friedrichsdorf in Germany with his original collection of wooden business cards !!!


Mr Olaf Heijman de Veenendaal in Holland, whose staplers that staple without staples didn’t go unnoticed.


Mr Jan Teunissen from the firm MEDEURAS GmbH in Düsseldorf in Germany, and his ballpoint pen « Mr. Answer school » equipped with a recap of leading historical events; or his ballpoint pen « Mr. Answer city » equipped with a reduced city map of the city of your choice.


Mr Petr Jan Rehak from Bohemia Paper S.R.O. in Prague in the Czech Republic with his beautiful papers, business cards, envelopes, postal cards…


Mr Patrice Mollinghoff from the firm Fischer Space Pen (Europe) Ltd., in Chelmsford in the United Kingdom, whose ballpoint pen Fischer Space Pen Logo 400/FSP is enjoying growing popularity.


Mr Uri Mussaffi, from the firm GEVARAM Quality Envelopes Ltd. in Israel, who explained to me his new generation of »envelope safe » that remains sealed even if someone tries to open it, and displaying the word « opened », when someone has tried to open it. A new art of envelope that will, for sure, be of interest to so many.


Mr C.C.M. Paagman from the firm PENNENIMPORT4YOU in La Hague in Holland, with his short, very easy to use ballpoint pen from the Windsock collection.


The firm Mangopaper from Stadtbergen in Germany with its marvellous hand-made paper products.


The firm IN VITRO from Tegucigalpa in Honduras with its beautiful collection of papers, envelopes, cork oak tree bags…


Thanks also to Michael Wills from the firm mWills in Schorndorf-Miedelsbach in Germany for his interesting collection of pencils, pencil sharpeners…


And of course, let’s meet again next year at the Paperworld 2012: The International Paper Trade Fair at the Messe Frankfurt in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
