Hey there @Ryan_Friedrich - thanks for reaching out!

At this moment, transferring ownership on Paper docs is available on team accounts on our business plans while admins of Dropbox Business teams can also transfer ownership of any doc that they currently have access to.

In the meantime, you could open both of your accounts (through different browsers) and copy and paste your Paper docs from one account to the other manually.

I know it's not optimal but I sure hope this helps to some extent and if there's anything else I can do from my end to assist with this, please let me know.
