    […] The Design Collection represents an alliance between two fine paper providers, Neenah and Gruppo Cordenons of Italy. The companies joined forces to bring together 11 famous paper brands and vendors, including Moondream, WILD, and ESSE. The results are simply breathtaking. These specialty papers really show the creative potential of print with vivid colors and intriguing textures. I was lucky enough to win one of the beautiful sample books on Facebook, so I’ve already seen and touched the items in person. My favorite portion comes from STARDREAM, whose pieces shimmer with a smooth sparkle that’s sure to inspire. Still, my absolute favorite favorite would be the Fashion Purple from SO…SILK. I would love to cover my office and even my living room with a combination of the the purple, Fair Blue, and a bit of Glamour Green. These 3 shades in particular pay homage to the fashion industry, and make this collection ideal for luxury product packaging or promotions. […]
