Quickly reference what you want
Use this book to help you pick the best papers or coatings for your projects! Easily disassemble the binding to apply the stickers, or place a paper on a wall to see how it looks across the room & put back together later. Quickly test color swatches in your program of choice by typing in the numbers provided on the swatch and comparing the print to your screen.
Made with repurposed paper!
This Printed Paper Feel Guide is made using scrap paper from past orders that would normally be paper waste! Now we can all help keep unused high-end paper from the landfill with every order we receive, all while giving it new life in our sample books.
Cover is made using color scrap papers and is printed using our Risograph duplicator from 1992 (RC6300) using soy &/or rice based inks & colors may vary from batches!
*We made this book with you in mind!*
We want everybody to be comfortable and confident in their choices and proud of what they invest in.
So we made a resource that feels familiar & is easily used any time you need.
