Written by in Collections, Color & Texture, Letterpress, Paper Passion


The word is out. “Wow!” “So excited about the Blush!” “This paper is just inviting me to feel it, I love textures!” Paper lovers are loving NEENAH® Cotton Papers, and who can blame them? There’s plenty to love…where should we begin?

Let’s start with color. This is Blush. It’s a perfect shade for a bride to be or to announce a new bundle of joy — and it’s just one of the three dreamy shades available in this 100% cotton portfolio.

There are three subtle, on-trend colors — Gray, Blush, and Mint — and three shades of white available in a Letterpress finish. All three colors, plus Fluorescent White are also available in a Letterpress Digital finish.

These strong, highly tactile papers are of course ideal for any letterpress project. This beautiful example of how paper can add a level of luxury to design is produced with two PMS colors and a 40.3pt letterpress on the ultra-thick 220DTC in Gray.

However, the Letterpress Finish is not just for letterpress projects. Look at the texture and dimension achieved with this perfectly executed combination of 4-color printing with a registered emboss and gold foil stamping.

The Letterpress Digital finish allows designers to achieve high-quality printing on short run projects. Blush adds a subtle shade of background color to this watercolor-like design, printed 4-color process on an HP Indigo® 7000 press.

Blush is proving to be a favorite amongst creatives. When paper is used as part of the design even the simplest of elements is enhanced; this silver foil becomes instantly elegant and feminine with this hint of color from the paper.

We all know, based on our own reactions as well as current research, color gets noticed. A simple surprise of a metallic copper foil pops off the Mint paper, drawing the eye in for closer examination of the key messaging within the design.

NEENAH® Cotton also offers Smooth and Wove finishes in three essential shades of white. Every paper aficionado knows there’s nothing like the feel of 100% cotton paper. The proven strength and durability are why these papers have stood the test of time and continue to be associated with premium quality, whether it be a brand, product or service. In addition to letterpress printing, cotton papers are used for letterhead and envelopes, invitations, professional documents, business cards, and more.

Expertly crafting the finest, pure cotton papers since the late 1870’s, Neenah manufactures NEENAH® Cotton papers with superior craftsmanship. These have-to-touch papers stand out with even the simplest of designs – perfect for embossing or debossing.

This Pearl White, Wove finish makes the perfect canvas for the time-honored art of engraving. The metallic ink sits on the top of the paper, adding another level of touch to this tactile sheet.
