Please note that New York Sales Taxes are collected for all sales. Winning Silent Auction bids are not taxed since they are considered to be contributions.

The Origami Source

We bring The Origami Source to you! Our book and paper business that is normally available only on-line is available in person at the OrigamiUSA Convention. Browse through the books! Touch a sample of the paper! Choose from our wide assortment of books and papers and then buy and take them home with you that day. Meet the people who manage The Origami Source, Mike and Janet Hamilton.

You can plan your shopping by downloading and reviewing the latest version of the Source List, but shop early if you are looking for something specific.

If you don't want to read a lot, here's what's new since last year.

To shop at The Source:

  • Browse in the sample room
  • Fill out an order form
  • Bring your completed form to the fulfillment area
  • Pay (Cash, Checks, Mastercard and Visa are accepted.)
  • Enjoy!

Naturally The Source gets crowded during the evenings and lunch periods (any time there are no classes). To mitigate this situation, you can leave your order in the drop-off box by the register and then pick up and pay later that day. You can also leave your order in a box at the Information Desk any time that The Source is closed, then pick up and pay when The Source reopens.
