Nordic Plus: A Swatchbook Adventure

Nordic4“Tired of the everyday grind? Ever dream of a life of romantic adventure?” So began each episode of the classic radio adventure series “Escape.” And honestly, those were the words that ran through our head when we first opened “Journeys on Nordic Plus,” the latest swatchbook from Unisource.

Kicking off with the headline “Caution: Uncharted Waters,” it uses images of commercial fishermen by Alaskan photographer Corey Arnold to reveal just how dramatic its Nordic Plus white coated board combines paper performance with an ability to embrace diecuts, embossing, folding and foil stamping.


Sheets include:

  • C1S Cover (8, 10 and 12 pt.): 97 brightness, 65 gloss
  • C2S Cover (8, 10, 12 and 16 pt.; 14 pt. recycled): up to 97 brightness, 50 gloss
  • C1S + C2S Blanks (15, 18 and 24 pt.): up to 94 brightness, 50 gloss.

Suggested uses for Nordic Plus include text books, postcards, business cards, hang tags, menus and more.

The triumph of this book is its expert use of 4-color printing and techniques such as multilevel emboss to make a photo of something like an enormous purple fishing net trailing behind a Scottish trawler seem like an otherworldly experience. And like the best swatchbooks, it instantly sets the mind to dreaming up new creative possibilities.
