Additional Information

The C. M. Paula Company, sometimes shortened to just Paula, was founded in 1958 by Charles McCollough. The Cincinnati-based company got its start in greeting cards, but branched off into stationery and novelty gifts, including pin-back buttons. 

In 2005 the company transitioned from consumer goods to a privately held holding company. Mr. McCullough passed away in 2017, after having spent 60 years of his life building his business up from its humble beginnings out of the trunk of his car.
