Meet Our Paper Specialists

Some might say that Larry was born into the paper business. His father and uncle started a paper business of their own back in 1948. At the start they sold wedding invitation stock to printers; eventually the company designed, converted, and printed invitations for stationers and printers. When the company was sold in 1995, Larry was left with a schooling on the ways of business management and, naturally, the ins and outs of the paper industry.

Chase started LCI Paper Company in 1995. His business grew quick and steady, with a consistent commitment to customer service and employee appreciation. The company currently operates in Marlborough, Mass.

An active community member, Chase has donated his time, money and resources to several surrounding causes, including: the local fire house, sponsored a local baseball and softball team, and donated paper to a local high school to write Valentines for the American troops in Qatar. For nearly 2 decades he has worked with Employment Options, Inc., a non-profit which helps people who have experienced various disadvantages find employment through their Workforce Development Program.

Chase also has a passion for helping young business hopefuls achieve their dreams. He sponsors a scholarship for Marlborough High School graduates, and also has a history of donating funds to young entrepreneurs to help make their business ideas a reality.

Chase, his wife and three children reside in Southborough, Massachusetts.

Kristen has been with LCI for over 5 years and worn many hats, but she's likely best known for her extraordinary blog, which is as informational as it is gorgeous to look at.

Kristen is responsible for the ever popular DIY how tos. From wedding invitations, to DIY accessories, to some of the most complex paper configurations you can image, Kristen is an expert at breaking it down bit by bit and making it perfectly accessible for customers.

It goes without saying that Kristen has extensive paper, print and stationery knowledge, as well as superior product photography skills. Working with papers to create beautiful invitations is one of Kristen's favorite things to do. She genuinely loves paper, and sharing that passion with her DIY fans.

In her spare time, Kristen simply can't stop thinking about paper, making specialty cards and invitations for friends and family. Kristen is always open for suggestions for blog posts, so don't be afraid to reach out.

Jennifer's experience is a great asset when it comes to the high attention to detail needed to ensure that LCI customers receive a great quality product.

Susan's father, in addition to working in the publishing department for the Christian Science Monitor, had a small print shop in his backyard where he filled orders for local businesses, and also distributed wedding invitations. Completely coincidentally, the company he bought from was called Chase - LCI's Larry Chase's father.

Before LCI Susan worked for several other printing companies, and for 10 years served as the Customer Service Manager for Data Guide Business Forms. Susan left that job to work as the office manager for her husband's drilling and blasting business Nitro Dynamics for 14 years.

Susan graduated in 1987 from Salem State University with a B.S. in Business and minors in Accounting and Psychology. She lives in Lunenburg with her husband Greg and three children: Tyler, Kayli, and Cooper.

Community: How We Give Back

"To me, the local community is the soul of any business. I have been very fortunate with LCI, and not supporting the local community was never an option.
