From the PaperSpecs newsletter, a paper option for your arsenal:
Cordenons has issued a new swatchbook for its recently launched felt-marked Canaletto Grana Grossa.
The stock is available in four weights (85 lb. text, 60 lb. cover, 78 lb. cover and 111 lb cover); one color, Bianco (white); and one sheet size (27.6 " x 39.4"). Canaletto Grana Grossa contains 20 percent cotton and 80 percent elemental chlorine-free wood-free primary pulp.
During the paper making process the long cotton fibers bond and securely intertwine creating paper with exceptional strength for the most demanding of printing techniques such as letterpress, engraving and thermography as well as traditional offset printing.
It is also suitable for diecutting, foil stamping, embossing and laminating as well. This elegant, cotton-enhanced paper is luxurious to the touch and visually has a natural lasting brightness and crisp purity.
