JAM Paper & Envelope Products

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. We received sample items to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

JAM Tyvek Envelopes and Recycled Red Paper.

JAM Paper & Envelope products are top quality, colorful, and they come in a wide variety of colors and styles. In addition to paper and envelopes, they also offer office supplies, portfolios, binders, Gel Pens (so have to get me one of those!!), and so on and so forth. The array of items offered is impressive!

We received a pack of recycled red paper and two Tyvek envelopes.

JAM paper comes in 25 styles & hundreds of colors!

The paper comes in 25 styles and hundreds of colors.  What better color to have for a review though, than red when Valentine's Day is just around the corner?  My son used a sheet of the paper to make a pop-up heart card.

I thought the card was going to be for his giiiiiiiiiirlfriend.

But no, even better, it was for dad. :)


We hung it up on the 'fridge (our go-to spot for our favorite projects).  It's right next to the one he made me last week.  Dad's is prettier, because it's red, but that's okay, I like them both the same. :)


Over the long weekend, he'll make some other projects with the paper, I'm sure. Maybe we'll even make something for grandma (my mom), who lives in a different state.  We can mail it to her in the Tyvek Envelopes we received. The Tyvek is great because it's stronger than paper, and not at all likely to rip.

You can learn more about JAM Paper and Envelope Products by visiting their website.  You can also follow them on Twitter and/or Facebook.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

You definitely want a good strong envelope when you're sending special handmade gifts. Grandma will want it to arrive perfectly intact!

Masshole Mommy said...

My two are always making paper crafts/projects and there is definitely a difference between the cheap stuff and the higher quality paper like this.

Brandi Yee said...

So many possibilities for kids to make crafts! These look great for various projects...and love that they come in a variety of colours :)

Petro Neagu said...

Yeah, our fridge is used for the same purpose. Only that we've got a zillion magnets on, sometimes I'm afraid to open the door.

Joanna Sormunen said...

I love to keep my son's projects also. It's incredible how good it makes you feel when your child does something special for you :)

I liked using Tyvek envelopes especially when I am enclosing something important.

That card was very sweet. I use Tyvek envelopes for sending important things in the mail.

Papercraft is so much fun and its definitely good to make sure you have a strong envelope I've had some distastes in the past with ones I have brought.

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

That looks like a lot of fun craft projects in the making. "Jam" as the name makes me go hmmmm though. I could only think paper jam in a copier. I'm sure that doesn't happen with this paper though :-)

Holy Ghost Writer said...

It is really good when they don't rip

becca said...

a strong envelope is very important when sending a special valentine

We do crafting projects all the time so I love that he is being creative with the products. I will have to check them out and see what I can find.

Dana said...

I love all kinds of paper and pens. The whole time I was reading your post, I was envisioning all the fun stuff I could do with this paper whenever I'm art journaling. Thanks for the reivew!

MikiHope said...

Tyrex envelopes are definitely stronger and do hold up very well when you are mailing something-especially when it is a precious card to grandparents from their grandson! You can do so much with different colors of paper-and I love that the heart was for Dad!

Judy SheldonWalker said...

I love doing crafts so this is definitely something to think about. Thanks!

Ann Jones said...

Paper crafts are always fun!

Theresa said...

I won a Silhouette Studio last year, and now that I have some free time coming up, I want to learn how to do more paper crafting with it. This sounds like great paper for that purpose!

Brian Miller said...

alissa apel said...

I've ordered translucent envelopes from them before. Very cool!

Pam said...

Looks like your little one had lots of fun. Quality paper products are the best and actually end up saving you money when doing paper crafts.

I think my sister has something like this somewhere in her room.

My kids really enjoy paper crafts. They once painted paper to make "red paper"

I love how creative kids can get with this. This will make for some really nice Valentine's Day crafts.

This is a great little product for Valentine's Day. I bet my daughter would love them to put letters to family/friends in.

Kristin Aquariann said...

How sweet! I loved paper even as a child, too - I still find piles in random boxes.

~ Noelle said...

That is cool about the envelope! We collect harley davidson poker chips... and a friend sent us one from new hampshire, by the time it got here, the envelope had ripped, right in the corner and the chip was long gone.. i am still so sad about that... had we had a good envelope, we would be good to go (although until we do, i ask people to tape the sides! lol)

Monica said...

I like that the paper is recycled - and that he made a card for Daddy!!

M Clark said...

Tyvek is a brand that I'm not familiar with, but it sounds like they make great paper goods. Thank you for this review.

mail4rosey said...

Jam is the company. Tyvek is the style of envelope, they're rip-proof, which I love!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Chrishelle Ebner said...

Looks like some great paper for Valentine crafts. I will have to check out JAM paper for our homemade cards.

Tyvek Envelopes, isn't Tyvek what they cover houses with before they put siding on them to keep the weather out? Or am I thinking of something else.
