Paper Magazine was founded and launched in 1984 by editors Kim Hastreiter and David Hershkovits as a black and white 16-page fold-out (printed in the offices of The New York Times) focusing on pop-culture. The magazine evolved into an 8-inch by 10-inch format and eventually into a glossy magazine. Along with the magazine there is also a website with articles, photos, blogs, and interviews. The website also features PaperTV which showcases musicians, behind the scenes footage and party clips.

Paper Publishing Inc. also owns ExtraExtra, a marketing, event planning, and production company.
