Welcome to Paper Goodies from Judy's Place! We've had our website since 1995 Thank you for visiting and ordering from us! .......................... Notice: Late April 2015- Since 2012, you have been buying at 28% discount off original prices, now considering the rising costs of doing business, my accountant and I realized it's time to go "off sale". I hope you understand. (Some prices actually came down with the simple formula I now use.) FYI: This how I calculate prices: Single pages on archival 80# (paper dolls) $2.50/pg 100# cardstock (bookmarks) $2.50/page. Books are $2 per page, whether on archival cardstock covers or 32# archival costume pages. ie: A 6 costume page book plus covers makes 8 pgs x $2 = $16. Greeting cards with envelopes are $2.25 each ...........

I have learned that MANY celebs names, images and likenesses are protected by legal representation. Even though the books are public domain, we cannot republish them as they have the name and likenesses of such stars. Sad but true. I've had to drop over 70 titles in the last 2 years. Who knows which will drop next? I search for celebrity representatives but they are hard to find. We surely want to be doing business legally!!
I have been playing with designs on Polyvore, which is a website blatantly marketing product, but offering artists the opportunity to use those products as design elements. We can create "sets" and collections. You may enjoy doing it too...or shopping there as well. Try clicking the link below to see some of my designs. <iframe style="display: block;" height="168" src="http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/browse.sets?.mid=embed-car-679543&_out=embed&display=car&displayOptions=%7B%22withBy%22%3A0%7D&size=m&sort=-pop&src_action=browse.sets&uid=679543" frameBorder="no" width="524" allowTransparency="true" scrolling="no"></iframe> ....................... Regarding FREE PRODUCT: Seems some customers are not clear on what products are FREE DOWNLOADS and what are FOR SALE. If it has a price...it's for sale, and you cannot download it, nor can we email it to you. When you "order" FREE PRODUCT, please choose "Free Product" as your "payment method" and not "credit card" or "PayPal" or "Mail-in. Thanks. There's a FREE PRODUCT CATEGORY in the grey column to the left of every page. THOSE are the items that are free, downloadable to your computer, and/or printable from your printer. Som are complete and ready to right-click and copy/paste into your own reference files. I never want to mislead any of you dear people, so I hope this clarifies things. ............................................................
Our paper dolls are presented in several formats:
1. DIGITAL -* NEW- Some design and craft products are available as DIGITAL ART. These we email to you, and you can print as many as you wish for your craft projects. Lots more designs for instant downloads are on ETSY. Look under judymjohnson
2. LASER PRINTED AS BOOKS- * Printed on 11"x17", folded and stapled into finished 8.5"x11" books, "Saddle Stitched." Look for prefixes of FMN (Forget-Me-not) or PSP (Paper Studio Press) for these published BOOKS. PSP books are a little larger format 9.5" x 11.5" No die-cutting or perforating. You cut them in the old-fashioned way.
3. PAPER DOLL PRINTS and SHEETS- * We have many titles printed on 8.5" x 11" 80# Cardstock pages; some new designs, some restored from vintage sources.
4. GIFT ITEMS -* We have a variety of other products as well; Mini PD books, Note cards, and tons of darling PD Post Cards, and bookmarks to craft or finished.
5. PAPER CRAFTING * We have images on paper for craftwork: Artist Trading Cards (ATCs), bookmarks, bookplates, kits to make post cards, many Collage Sheets, and a limited supply of German & English Scrap.
6. VINTAGE PDs * Also we handle estates and collections of many authentic VINTAGE PDs from our own collections and consignee's.
FOREIGN ORDERS:There will likely be duty fees sent to out-of-U.S. addresses that you must pay on your end. We have no control over those fees. Large packs have gone up greatly. However we can pack 4-6 regular 8.5"x11" books in one Flat Rate Envelope, but larger items will have premium INTERNATIONAL PRIORITY expense.
Judy M Johnson has been illustrating paperdolls for major publishing houses since 1984, including B. Shackman, Dover, Magicloth Toys, and Schylling Toys, and for many periodicals and special events. Today she enjoys doing restorations of vintage paper doll sets and re-publishing them as full color laser copies (book format) on top grade archival papers for your reference and pleasure of collecting.
Products include: Original design paper dolls by Judy, reproductions of vintage paper dolls, PD post cards, PD note cards, Vintage paper dolls and toys from estates, Original Art, Collage Images, Bookmarks, Novelties, and more. We also carry the artwork of Judy's Mom, Helen Johnson, and of her friend, Patricia Hicks Ruiz. Sometimes we handle estates and collections for other people. At this update (spring 2013) we have rather a large inventory of vintage paper dolls and other paper products, and uploading to the site as fast as we can. Check the category panel on the left of each page for "Antique, Estate, Vintage" to see what's available. As these are just one-in-stock items, you need to move fast to get them.
All our FMN (Forget-Me-Not Publishing) products are Printed on Top Grade Archival (Acid Free) Papers

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS & Service:
Thanks so much for providing such an absorbing, entertaining and wonderful service for those of us who love paper dolls. I was entranced by your website and will no doubt get many more hours of enjoyment from visiting it, and, of course, ordering! B. Martha Lee
Dear Judy, When I opened [my package of paper dolls] I was immediately transported back to a childhood memory of me sitting on the living room floor carefully cutting out lovely outfits and accessories for my new cut out doll. It was wonderful to remember how exciting it was to receive a brand new paper doll book! I loved each of the books I ordered and I look forward to ordering more and giving them to friends. I have no doubt that they too will revisit just a bit of their childhood when they open up their own paper doll books! I’m also hoping to introduce my great niece to the captivating world of paper dolls! I appreciate your efforts and thank you most sincerely in “reviving” some lost treasures. Mary Jane Sprawka
I wanted to let you know that my order of paper dolls arrived yesterday. It was a perfect time because I was confined to my bed with a bronchial infection and when my husband brought me the priority mail package with the paper dolls it made my day!! And thank you so much for the sweet message and the darling EXTRAS, I'm such a fan of the paper dolls from the '30s and "40s! - Laura Fisher, Cobble Hill BC
Dear Judy, I just received my paper doll order: I'm like a little girl again!I dropped everything as I ripped open the Prioirity Mail which disclosed the precious paper dolls you just sent. Long forgotten memories are crowding in on me, happy days long past when all I had to worry about was if I had enough change for the next paper doll I wanted to purchase. They are all beautiful, all priceless, at least in my "book". I'm having a very hard time NOT cutting out the clothes. Georgette Robin, California
I grew up in the 50's and loved my paper dolls. I had a subscription to Jack and Jill, and still have many of those little paper dolls. Good memories. My mom was a teacher, and we had The Grade Teacher! And of course, Betsy McCall. My favorite was Kit and Kabootle, and I still have them on my dresser. Thanks for the memories! Alice Gruber
From Dawn Sparks: Always a great transaction with unique items and superlative customer service. Judy is a gem!
Dear Judy, The paperdolls came today, thanks. I like them very much. I especially like your Bazaar lady, very glamorous can't wait to show them to my paperdoll friends Best, Inger Moller, Denmark

Dear Judy, My order was received yesterday -- what fast service! I love your great reproductions and this order, in particular, brought back many childhood happy memories! Judith L. Jones, VA
Judy, I think you are amazing!!.You are so talented and obviously have other interests to boot. A few years ago I bought a notebook with several of your earlier pieces. I think you are more talented than many in the field. It is great to hear about your other interests. Thanks for the discount. Keep up the good work. Nancy Souder
Dear Judy, My paperdolls arrived yesterday, and I couldn't be happier. I am amazed at the quality of your work...the colours are so vibrant! I have always loved paperdolls and finding this site a short time ago has been a dream come true. There were so many to choose from, and now that I see how much fun I'll have, I'll certainly be back. Thanks so much for bringing back a part of my girlhood! Cheers, Andrea, Brisbane, Australia
Judy, I received the lovely paper dolls yesterday. Thank you so much! I've already started cutting out OKLAHOMA. The nice things about reproductions is that you don't have to feel guilty about cutting them out. I hope to place another order soon with your store. - Alina Koluri, Wisconsin
My collection is growing and I love it. It is a wonderfull past time and brings back memories of a wonderful era in time, when the world as we knew it, was at one point in time, at peace. You have the best dolls that I have seen and your prices are so reasonable. - Charlotte Hilferding
I received my order on Saturday and was thrilled with everything. I ordered many of Judy's paper dolls and love them so much. Thank you for your fabulous work! Sincerely, Lorie Harding
Hi Judy, Received the paper doll sets today. I love, love, love them! I will definitely be ordering more. Not only will I have fun with them, they will help me find missing pieces to sets I have. The Sally's Silver Skates set I had as a child - I couldn't understand how she could get married wearing ice skates, wouldn't she trip on her dress? I had so many paper dolls as a kid (only girl with 5 brothers) and I love finding sets I had back then. Thank you so much, Pam
Hi Judy- your website is a dream come true! My birthday is May 31st-so I had the urge to treat myself to a bit of a paper doll splurge. Thanks so much for all of the trouble you go to, to make these cozy memories for us paper doll lovers. I have bad allergies to actual vintage papers and such, so these reproductions are the perfect solution for me. I was born in 1964, so a lot of the ones from the 50s, I can enjoy now. Keep up the fabulous work! Kind regards- Jennifer Rios
Thrilling site!! Too much fun! Mary J Smith, Gardiner, Maine
Judy Greetings. Order recieved!!! Paper dolls beautiful as usual! Thank you! Cross it off your list of things to do or wonder about!!!!! Regards Kathleen Maynez

I received my post cards, greeting cards and gift cards of the seasonal beauties yesterday, 21 July 07. Thanks so much. I bought a new 9 photo frame to start a new collection of your movie star/celebrity postcards yesterday. At this rate I will have an entire wall dedicated to Judy Johnson creations, which is fine with me! I think I could paper an entire room with the paper dolls I've purchased from you, but I won't as I want to keep them in their pristine condition. Dawn Sparks
Just wanted to let you know I received my latest order and was absolutely delighted. Another order has been placed online and I'm sending a check out to you tomorrow. Your IDEX paper dolls are amazing! Linda Smith

Hi Judy, I just wanted to thank you for the great paperdolls and the wonderful service. I can't believe they came so quickly. The quality is so good - I think better than some other repros that I have ordered elsewhere. I'm so glad I found your site. I look forward to ordering more. Thanks again, Becky
I can't tell you how pleased I was that my husband ordered some wonderful items from your site for Christmas and my birthday today (and yes, I have to admit, I emailed him the link to your site and several others, dropping a very BIG hint). I received the lovely clock (now hanging on a wall of my paper doll room) and two of your wonderful paper doll sheets (Stout Figures and the Panda). Also love Angelique, and Marcella. Linda Ocasio.
Hi Judy, Thanks again for sending the paperdolls so quickly in spite of your injuries. You have done an excellent job in restoration. Sue Olson

Hi Judy! Really enjoying the latest shipment of paper dolls from you! Thanks for the free stuff too! By any chance are you related to Jenny at Paper Doll Review?

[Yes, Stephanie, Jenny is my daughter, and publisher of PDR and Paper Doll Studio and Paper Studio Press PD books.]
Oh Judy, thank you, thank you!!! I love the paperdolls. And I really appreciate you getting them mailed to me here in Florida. Have a great weekend. Gail Burtz
Hi Judy, The paper dolls arrived today (11/23) - Christmas a month early! I think I'm going to throw caution to the wind and order MORE now instead of waiting until next month! My kids already know that they will never inherit any money, but my granddaughter knows she'll get my paper dolls. Many thanks, Pat LeDoux
Yes, I was able to download the free paperdolls. I received my order from you yesterday, and I was extremely pleased with what I ordered. I will be ordering more as my budget allows. I am so happy to have found your site. Thanks, Cher Johnson
