Neenah releases new Design Collection Swatchbook

Neenah's new "The Design Collection" Swatchbook.
The Design Collection Swatchbook has over 100 specialty papers for high-end print and packaging projects.

Neenah Paper’s new comprehensive swatchbook, The Design Collection, brings together over 100 premium papers with colours, textures, finishes and weights designed for unique, stand-out print collateral and specialty packaging projects.

Designers and brand managers can replace the previous 1.0 and 1.1 swatchbooks with this “all-encompassing” edition.

Its 15 specialty grades make up a portfolio of premium papers for luxury packaging and high-end print collateral – including the newly added Astroking Papers.

The new book houses all The Design Collection papers, including these new and recent additions:

New additions

Astroking Papers with a hint of shimmer and a plush satin finish are available in five colours – Snow White, Desert Sand, Moss Green, Brown Stone and Plum Tree.

Fifteen specialty paper grades that make up the new portfolio.
The Design Collection Sampler 2.0 features 22 pages of idea-generating designs, papers and print techniques.

Recent additions

  • Natural Evolution Papers, with a special surface coating on both sides, provides a soft, natural texture, an elegant touch and outstanding performance.
  • Monnalisa Papers (the smooth sister to Natural Evolution Papers) offer a smooth, bright white surface for hangtags, business cards, books and brochures.
  • Slide Papers are considered the “packaging version” of Neenah’s popular Plike Papers, but are optimized for more resilience.

Seven print samples in the book showcase a variety of papers from Opaque White and metallic inks, to foil stamping and embossing. One exceptional feature is a blind embossed sheet of Plike Orange featuring an amazingly small line of gold-foil-stamped type placed on top of the emboss.
