Sophistication comes in many shades of black and James Cropper holds over 50 recipes for the darkest, most elusive of paper colours.

Technology, science, art and skill combine to give unrivalled choice in both ready-made and bespoke black papers, matching pigments with textures and rigorous in-house testing to ensure the
desired impact is achieved. Five ready-to-order blacks are available from stock, with other blacks developed as custom projects.
