It contains 35% cotton, and combines a softness that holds letterpress impression beautifully on both sides, with a strength and sturdiness that provides confidence.

Gmund Cotton 500gsm is a beautiful, 100% cotton stock perfect for letterpress printing. Compared to most thick papers that are made of two sheets glued together, Gmund Cotton is one of the thickest 1 ply sheets on the market, giving it a soft, yet sturdy touch. It is physically thicker than ordinary digital and offset business cards with plastic celloglaze coating; It however feels comparable in hold and strength and does suggest excess bulk like thicker weights can. Colour: Linen Cream Weight: 500gsm
Coaster Board 390gsm was originally manufactured, funnily enough, to serve as drink coasters. Somewhere along the line however, (over a beer) we discovered it was just as good, if not better served as business cards. Coaster Board is thick and quite strong, but also offers a natural relaxed tone, making it confident yet personable. The 390gsm weight enables deep letterpress impression on one side of the card only, or moderate impression on both sides of the card. Colour: Neutral Cream Weights: 390gsm
With its distinctive and natural look, Buffalo Board will open a world of possibilities for your business cards. Made from natural kraft fibres, one side of the board reveals a distinct rawness of fibres complementary to the smoothly refined reverse-side finish. Buffalo Board is incredibly durable, but holds letterpress impression beautifully. It is also compatible with offset and digital printing techniques, and is the perfect paper to accentuate a sense of natural confidence. Colour: Kraft (Brown) Weight: 332gsm
Box board is a 100% recycled stock, originally suited for cartons, case bounding, packing and backing. Perfect for those seeking a raw look, Box board’s strengths are in its imperfections, with each sheet containing unique visible fibres and speckles. Its thick weight is durable and can hold deep letterpress impression on both sides. Colour: Unlined (Grey) Weight: 600gsm
Paper mounting is the process of joining separate sheets of paper together. Duplex two, or triplex three. Mounting selected paper stocks together is perfect when looking to add extra thickness, or a punch of solid colour without adding another run of ink. Some examples include black/white, navy/cream, white/red/white, however the combinations are endless.
