Handmade paper 

We love to work with this paper. Our deckled edge paper has a subtle and unique imperfections created by human hands and natural ingredients, are more beautiful than superficially ‘perfect’ products – we think.

Unfortunately, the worldwide industry standard dyeing process involves all sorts of nasty chemicals which are toxic and draining to the environment; using more energy, more water and producing more waste.
The entire process has direct and distressing impacts on aquatic life; soil damage, global warming and let's not forget how harmful this is to the dye workers.
By purchasing the handmade paper, you are contributing to a more sustainable, more ethical and more environmentally friendly products. Natural dye process requires minimal amounts of water, no chemicals, salt or acids. You really are purchasing a one of a kind, slow crafted, lovingly made product. 
You will love this soft and gentle to the touch handmade paper.

Gmund Colour Matt

With eyes closed, the average person can imagine about 20 different colours. A creative designer or visual artist can envision as many as 50. And a professional colour expert can “see” approximately 80 colours in their mind’s eye.

After extensive research on colours and their perception, Gmund Paper discovered that 48 is the precise number of colours that most human beings can satisfactorily perceive and understand. 

After two years of developmental work in Gmund’s creative laboratory, a collection was finally ready that was finely harmonized, comprehensive, intensive and excellently combinable. By choosing products entirely from our Gmund Colors range you eradicate the risk that stocks and palettes will clash – they absolutely blend to perfection.

Versa Felt

Versa Felt sails to us all the way from America. The felt finish is lush and more prominent on one side. Depending on the design, we'll print on the slightly more textured side wherever possible, however solids aren't recommended. The depth of Eclipse Black looks incredible with our white ink print process. The felt finish is more prominent on one side, yet offers a sophisticated printing surface with extraordinary print reproduction, particularly in black. Acid-free with archival properties for permanence/stability.

Woodland
We are so in love with the stunning colour palette offered by our Japanese mill whose quality is unmatchable. Created for the local Japanese packaging market, a board weight isn’t usually offered.  Kissed with a delicate dimple impression reminiscent of vintage parchment paper or even a hint of citrus peel if you hold it so it catches the light.
