Question Can I have my paper schematics at my esd work station?
Answer

Yes, you can have paper schematics at your ESD workstation.

Best practice is to use Dissipative Paper or have regular insulative paper in Dissipative Document Holders.

Regular paper is insulative, and the concern is placing ESD sensitive items on the paper interfering with the path-to-ground of the grounded ESD mat. However, paper is hygroscopic (readily absorbing moisture) so often there is sufficient moisture to provide an acceptable path-to-ground.

If regular paper is used, discipline not to place the ESDS on the paper should be followed particularly during periods of low humidity.
