We R Memory Keepers: Behind the Scenes

We R Memory Keepers logo We R Memory Keepers has been in the paper industry for over 90 years.  It all started when William R. Hiller and his two sons started Hiller Bookbinding in Provo.  Hiller Bookbinding was actually one of the first companies to make a book designed for preserving memories safely and securely.

When you have a company that is based in Provo and deals with paper it almost seems natural that it would turn it's eyes to scrapbooking.  In 2000 that day came and they launched the brand name We R Memory Keepers to sell scrapbook supplies.

They hired  artist and graphic designers to design their scrapbook supplies and of course made scrapbook albums.  Unlike many other scrapbook albums We R Memory Keepers makes their albums by hand in the United States

I love We R Memory KeepersTheir company goal is to create functional quality archival supplies to store your memories.  OK that isn't a "sexy" goal, but who doesn't like quality?

And people do respect quality.  Scrapbooking may have fallen on hard times recently, but We R Memory Keepers is thriving.  They have they made the Inc. 5000 for years in a row.  New products launched in 2013 include an Envelope punch board (that I'm sure most card makers would love) and a Euro Hook power punch (that anyone who wants to make their own product packaging or just cute ways to hang supplies at home will have to have).  Click here to see the other new products this year.  

That sums it up what more can I possibly tell you about a company is iconic in the scrapbooking world is We R Memory Keepers that you would not already know.
