Preparing to design a brochure for your client, you’ve worked out that you need a paper that’s a white matte canvas suitable for embossing, but you don’t have a lot of time to scour individual paper mill sites to find the perfect sheet. Fortunately, you only need to bookmark one site: Legion Paper’s Ultimate Paper Selector. Here you’ll find more than 3,000 (!) papers from 16 countries, all in one database searchable by color, size, weight, application, surface and more.
Since 1994 Legion Paper has traveled the world in search of the finest papers from the best manufacturers. Collaborating with some of the best known artists and renowned mills, Legion Paper is known as the world’s most relentless innovator in the art of papermaking. And at every opportunity they’ve listened to your needs, seeking out new ways to enable you to make your designs shine – the Ultimate Paper Selector is the perfect example of that.
Want to find a lightweight, medium-texture blue paper that comes 19” x 25” or larger, and that’s ideal for book printing? In just a few seconds the Ultimate Paper Selector will find the perfect paper for you. (The answer is Zerkall German Ingres, by the way.)
Legion Paper’s next project? Making their online sample department more robust and more customizable. Currently, they offer many different swatchbooks, not just by mill or by grade but by color or application (e.g., a book of just Blue papers or just papers made for Books). The next iteration will allow people to build their own custom swatchbooks! For now, though, they encourage you to get in touch for anything not covered in their online sample department. (And for ordering swatchbooks, be sure to use promo code WeArePaper to save 20% on your order!)
Enter to win one of 10 sets of color-themed swatchbooks from Legion Paper; each set includes a book each of Natural, Blue, Green, Red & Pinks, and Metallic. Hurry, contest ends Nov. 23rd!
