Up With Paper, the world’s leading marketer of innovative three dimensional greeting cards, is excited to announce an exclusive partnership between its premium brand, UWP Luxe, a boutique line of trend-driven pop-up greeting cards, laser cut stationery, and elegantly packaged home goods, and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Together, UWP Luxe and MoMA are uniting to offer the best in paper-engineered greeting cards and the finest paper products, each of which resembles a small work of art. MoMA’s world-class boxed everyday and Christmas cards will now be available for purchase exclusively from UWP Luxe in North America.

UWP Luxe and MoMA’s shared passion for and knowledge of modern art make for the perfect match and an ideal partnership.

It was only natural to bring us together under our UWP Luxe premium brand, and we are thrilled to be able to offer MoMA’s premium boxed everyday and Christmas cards to our customers.”
UWP Luxe will begin shipping MoMA designs to customers the beginning of January.
