The Pocket Pal: The Answers to Life’s Print & Paper Questions

International Paper Pocket Pal

Must Have: International Paper

Finding it difficult to keep up with the latest on printing and paper? Hey, it’s not as if there’s an instruction book on this stuff. Oh wait, there is. It’s called the Pocket Pal and for the last 85 years (!) International Paper’s been tucking it into the grateful hands of designers, printers, and everybody else who really wants to know the facts.

But don’t let the age fool you. The most recent edition, its 21st, covers the latest technology, including digital inkjet, variable data and security printing. It also provides valuable information on more traditional printing, too, thanks to a thoughtful balance of history, technology and application. And yes, at 7 x 4 inches, you can easily pop it in your pocket or bag.

    Where can I get one of these. your instruction books are invaluable! I would contact my distributor but obtaining any kind of samples these days has proven to be extremely difficult. And as a Pro Member I try to order everything through paper specs., I also lean on paperspecs when I am denied, (by distributor) or feeling terribly uncomfortable (by distributor) when ordering samples from the local distributor. . I am made to feel as though I am stealing. pushed away

    Hopefully I can get sample, many people need to see before making a decision. Paper needs to be touched. Paper/ print needs to be experienced through visual means and touch.
    I have a difficult time selling in these points to a client who does not have reference.

      Hi Eileen, thanks for writing. And apologies about the automated response. Unfortunately comment moderation is a necessary step in a world where spammers, hackers and worse regularly post on every website they come across. We’ve had to get rid of some links/images through moderation that you most definitely wouldn’t want to see on PaperSpecs. In the meantime, our PaperSpecs PRO Concierge, Susie, is looking into the availability of the Pocket Pal. She will be in touch with you directly once she’s acquired that information for you. Hope that helps 🙂
