It's hard to believe we started Lasting Impressions almost 30 years ago in our family room while living in California.   We love creating products that make lives more creative, fun and happy.  From teaching thousands how to create beautiful  hand embossed cards to our newest endeavor My Story they are all about sharing and caring for each other.

We have met so many friends along the way as we have done various craft and tradeshows around the country. We are so glad you stopped by, the only thing that would be better is if we could sit  side by side and visit.


Kerry & Lane

Originally founded in the garage of Kerry and Lane Hill in 1990, Lasting Impressions for Paper, Inc. has grown from its pioneering roots in hand embossing templates to become a leading paper crafting company delivering a complete line of more than 1600 card making and scrapbooking products. Headquartered in Woods Cross, Utah, the company has 35 employees with manufacturing operations across the United States and China and a worldwide distribution center in North Salt Lake. The company’s products are distributed throughout the world through a network of retailers, with the majority of the business coming from US markets. Lasting Impressions has amassed a large and loyal client following and has been the recipient of the Creating Keepsakes Readers Choice Award for the past seven years. In order to capitalize on the growth of the online scrapbooking market, the firm recently acquired Touch of Embossing, an industry-leading e-commerce website that distributes the full line of Lasting Impressions products

Chief designer at Lasting Impressions and pioneer in the paper crafting industry, Kerry is an active pundit and a sought after speaker whose vision and passion for creating lasting memories drives her company. Kerry began her career managing a multi-million dollar real estate development firm in San Francisco, where she learned the value of teamwork and motivation. In 1990, she left the real estate market and began her foray into paper crafting by selling her first embossing designs at a local craft fair. With that event, Kerry launched a new segment of the card making industry—hand embossing. Today, with Kerry’s vision, Lasting Impressions is the industry leader in embossing and has expanded into full lines of cards, scrapbooking papers, software products, and accessories. Kerry studied computer science at Utah State and Brigham Young University. She is an active CEO and mother of 2 children.
