Its colors and texture are alluring and rich inviting users to handle them. Take a look for yourself. Then get in touch with your Neenah Rep and get your hands on a sample.


Combinations of colored papers and print techniques make bold statements like this  iridescent foil stamp on ESSE®, Black. With just silver and black ink and OXFORD®, Wealth, Voilà! You can envision the New York City streetgrid,  The sheet on the right shows how to create dimension with a drop shadow plus a dry trap on OXFORD, Black.

Who does not love letterpress? Take a look at this Letterpress sheet: Letterpress geometric forms combine to make a likeness  Martin Luther King Jr. on CANALETTO. And a coaster on the super-thick WILD, Heavy Vellum? How fabulous is that?


Images leap off metallic papers. These samples are almost ethereal. We used offset printing on ESSE, Pearlized Latte (front sheet) and on STARDREAM®, Silver (back sheet) to demonstrate the capabilities of the paper.

The power of simple: Silver + Texture = Sophistication. A crisp silver foil stamp 0ver a textured finish of OXFORD, Blue Chip creates a sharp, fresh look. We used a registered emboss on the EAMES™, White, Diffused Architecture. The combination invites users to run their fingers across this translucent sample. It will make heads turn.

    What a splendid job by Design Army on this paper promotion. With over 111 papers to select from to trim this down to this selection was a job in itself. The papers truly come to life when print touches the surface. How can any designer not relish the opportunity to print on the best. Best of all each page is not a click and then gone, but a reference tool for a lifetime!
