Space Invader: Nicole Katz & Paper Chase Press

Hey there, queens of the universe. Nasty Galaxy drops on October 4; have you pre-ordered your copy of this linen-bound, full-color, brimming-with-advice, cocktail-party-in-your-lap? It picks up where #GIRLBOSS left off and dives into all the inspirational, bizarre, funny, endearing, glamorous (and a few definitively unglamorous) nooks of Sophia’s life. It’s all in there, and we can’t wait for you to see it. 

In the weeks leading up to the release, we’ll be taking you on a journey around L.A. to get to know some of the baddest mamajamas in the galaxy who inspire Sophia on the regular. Check back every week to see where we’re headed next!

Nicole Katz is the CEO of Paper Chase Press—a second generation family-run press and bindery. They’ve been hand-making custom printed goods like books, cards, invitations, and posters in their shop in Hollywood for 40 years, and are the go-to printing source for the most influential creatives and entrepreneurs in town. Whether you’re in search of personalized stationery (we’re in love with the current Hollywood-starlet set designed by jewelry wunder Sophie Buhai), business cards, notepads or just about anything else that can be made with paper, Paper Chase elevates the quotidian to something personal.

To you, what is a Girlboss?
To be honest, it means not being a lazy asshole. 

Tell us a little bit about your space. What inspired the aesthetic?
Our building is literally between a library and a strip club, so my goal was to create an aesthetic for the shop that wasn’t as shitty as the streets of Hollywood. Also, my entire professional career has been spent in the art world, so I think I’ve inadvertently turned our space into a gallery.

What role do you see your business playing in the galaxy of L.A.?
I like to think our printed matter bolsters the communication efforts of our clients and their businesses, and makes them look good. 

Anything exciting on the horizon?
We’ll be participating in the Echo Park Craft Fair and the LA Art Book Fair over the next couple of months. And stay tuned for a #girlboss x Paper Cuts collaboration in 2017!
