Constructed in the early 1900s, the building that Paper City Pictures calls home adds its own vintage character to the studio’s photography. Although the antique structure has been renovated to have a sleek, modern feel, it retains some of its original design elements, reminding visitors of its historic and timeless quality. Restored brick walls and the original wood mill floors lay the foundation for Paper City Pictures’ colorful sets, including a sapphire-colored backdrop that can bring out the color of a child's eyes or the shiny coat of an australian cattle dog. In another area, a large mural depicts a gray-and-black urban scene where subjects strike poses on a wrought-iron bench or raise their hands to hail a 2-D taxi. Aside from in-studio portraits of families and individuals, the photographers also venture out to events such as weddings, birthday parties, and reunions and specialize in performance shots for dancers or band members.

In 2007, manager David Stauffer transformed a century-old building into a charming dry-goods store. Honoring the antique architecture, he still sends grains sailing down the building's antique wooden chute, which unloads shipments into pickup trucks and the gullets of bears that are tired of stealing picnic baskets. Additionally, the shop continues to stock its signature birdseed blend, lawn fertilizer, garden and pet supplies, hay, and other outdoor essentials.
