With 170 years of British master papermaking experience, James Cropper presents its most traditional and timeless papers at this year’s Paperworld – the leading international trade fair for stationery and office supplies.
The bespoke paper manufacturer will introduce a vibrant array of new shades in its classic Vanguard range at the event, which takes place in Frankfurt from 31 January to 2 February 2016. The kaleidoscopic assortment of 32 dazzling colours has been enhanced, with the addition of a medley of red and blue tones – Blueberry, Bordeaux, Cherry and Purple – following a trend for the hues.
In addition, two new papers being showcased – Elation and Porcelain – are specifically designed to be versatile for a range of printing outcomes. Porcelain is a pure white product that provides the sharpest and smoothest of blank canvases for designers, while Elation – a tactile, high-grade and versatile felt-marked paper – exudes elegance.
Andy Smith, Export Sales Director at James Cropper, said: “We’re incredibly proud of our originality and design at James Cropper, but also value the beauty of our tradition and heritage – Vanguard, Elation and Porcelain are fantastic examples of where tradition and innovation collide”.
“Porcelain is a stunningly flawless and fresh paper, which is designed with effortless modern printing in mind, whilst Elation’s tactile qualities project a high-end corporate impression. Our Vanguard range has always offered a wide assortment of colours, from vivid reds to soothing pastels, and the latest additions to the collection reflect a demand for even deeper, bolder shades. We aim to offer a colour, texture and sensation for every occasion.”
James Cropper will also present two existing paper collections that bring with them an undeniable sense of quality and class to business stationery. Ambassador, a FSC® pure fibre collection of watermarked papers, offers a tremendous choice of finishes from traditional Wove and Laid options to geometric Squares and a unique undulating Waves effect. Whereas the illustrious British paper brand Croxley Heritage, available in classic Wove, Laid and Linen finishes, balances papermaking heritage with contemporary eco-friendly business requirements, being certified FSC® 100% Recycled.
The multi-award-winning paper manufacturer, which celebrated its landmark 170 year anniversary this year, prides itself on its premium and uncoated papermaking, which is unrivalled in quality, versatility, sustainability and service.
