Pacon was founded in 1951 as Paper Converters, Inc. in Appleton, Wisconsin. Our product offerings kept growing, and we soon outgrew our facility within a former paper mill. In 1968 we relocated to the Casaloma Drive facility we are still operating from today.

We continue to expand and grow our business to offer our customers the most dynamic range of educational products under the sun. We strive to provide innovative products for both the classroom and home. We are proud to offer brands such as Fadeless® Paper, Bordette® Borders, Tru-Ray® Construction Paper, Art1st® Art Papers, Classroom Keepers®, Creativity Street® and WonderFoam®

Pacon is proud to include Strathmore Artist Papers™, Bemiss-Jason and Superior Specialties in our family.

Pacon Corporation focuses our donations in line with our mission: to engage, inspire and empower teachers and students. Preference for donations is given to non-customary learning activities or projects which could not otherwise receive funding. We certainly support the ongoing education which occurs through regular classes, clubs and programs, both public and private. We consider these as vital to our educational system, and are proud to serve these customers as they purchase through our school distributor network.
