Don’t use too many print production processes—when one—or none will do!

Let the paper speak for itself. 

Following yesterday’s Navy day, we flipped the focus from blue stock to blue ink. The choice to use a #onecolour ink perhaps used to be for economical reasons (think back to the 1980s)…But, less is more! 

What’s beautiful about this print piece, is that it’s a step up from the basic 1-colour on white stock…it’s likely a coloured 60lb bond. Great for printing #zines!

Today is #NavyDay! And while some might protest the exact shade of this blue could perhaps be Royal or Cobalt—there’s no mistaking its hue.

Coloured stock can be more impactful and economical with a 1-colour imprint vs. printing CMYK. 

Looking for a similar effect? Our #ColourUncoated collection offers deep, rich colour ideal for white ink; crisp image reproduction; and a uniform surface for consistently beautiful results. Our #NavyBlue comes in 110lb cover (290 gsm) and a sheet size 18.25 x 12.5 inches for digital toner presses.

We can’t read what this says…but imagine that this artsy-wrapped paper has something like an artisan sandwich inside! 

#Newsprint is something that often gets overlooked, as well, received for just newspaper printing. But its thin, lightweight, neutral properties offer so much when creatively applied to other #print and #packaging uses!

This is a great solution for artists who like to add their signature style to something understated.

Print serves to inform and promote. Another #posterseries by @nick_b_designs called "Artist Colours".

Nick asked his friends to describe their favourite famous artwork in a simple way then used colour blocks to represent the artwork. The idea was to see if people could visualize the artwork from the colours and description and maybe revisit it and discover something new in it.

Any guesses what people are buying in these #goldbubblemailers…from a museum in Poland?!

Don’t limit gold to just ink—this packaging is the kind we’d rush to open…but maybe also keep, neatly tucked away on our desks. 

To offset the high gold—we like the use of #SirioUltraBlack stock for the mailing tag—with a hint of #whiteink.

Sometimes…everything you need is already in the stock! This #goldfoldover is an accent cover that houses multi publication pieces. Notice the use of #whiteink—digitally printed, or can also be foilstamped with a die—provides a subtle contrast.

For this we’d use our Huge #MirriCard—a collection of reflective #metallicpapers. The colour is locked inside the film, it is robust and will not scratch or flake. It can print direct UV litho, digital printing (ideal for short runs, screen printing). All Mirri stocks are considered fold and glue friendly. Also great for #invitations and #packaging!

Best cover ever. What better way to communicate luxury and opulence, than to let the gold just shine?

We appreciate the design detail that went into this cover design—to create an artistic/organic die that spills over onto the spine.

For us…all that glitters…IS gold! 

Gold can be used in so many ways: matte, gloss, foilstamp—and each one has a different look and feel, depending on the stock its printed on. 

Stay tuned this week for some gold highlights! ✨

If you’ve ever bought a cosmetic product—it was likely printed on #MirriBoard.

With its metalized surface protected by a polyester film, it has a high surface energy excellent for #inks and #adhesives. MirriBoard’s bright, glossy finish lets you print #shortrun #metalliceffects with added dimension and value—without using special inks.  Or…you can use white ink for a foil-stamped look!

MirriBoard is perfect for creating unique #packaging, #invitations, #tags, #greetingcards, #menus and #businesscards. Available in #gold and #silver—12pt, 13pt and 16pt.

If you’re a designer—you’ve likely started on holiday projects. Looking for a stock that will shine bright this holiday season?

GPA’s #MirriSparkle offers a distinctive glitter texture that sparkles in the light. The unique glitter texture provides a tactile experience complimented by a metallic lustre and shimmer. Perfect for #highend #packaging, #invitations and #POPapplications that demand attention.

The high-quality metallic film is laminated to a premium white-backed folding box-board. The surface of the film is treatable with print, as well as other print finishing options, from foil blocking to screen processes, enabling customers to create extremely attractive and unique options. When you overprint on Mirri Sparkle, you can create any colour ‘sparkle’ you wish! 

If you use white ink, it masks the glitter effect, adding more subtlety to the film and design. Glitter will not come off on your hands nor in your equipment! Most existing “glitter type” papers have a rough, “sandpappery” feeling, but Mirri Sparkle is fairly smooth.

What’s so nice about Huge? 
Our #Nice collection!

Last week we featured some origami folding posters. We often think of only cover stock that folds to create packaging…but using a nice, light text weight has so much possibility. To create interest, and interaction with design, print and paper.

Here’s a look at a few of our NICE highlights:

#NiceArtSilk—a #1 premium Italian silk paper, so refined, smooth and engaging surface that it speaks volumes. With its silky, soft white surface, it’s the perfect choice for catalogues, magazines and advertising material. Available in: 80lb, 100lb Text—and 8pt, 10pt, 14pt, 16pt cover.

#NiceBrite—is smooth and engaging surface speaks volumes. It’s the choice of designers and printers who want to deliver a truly unique sensory experience. Available in 50lb, 60lb, 70lb, 80lb Text only.

#NiceC1S_FBB—is a gloss that is tough, multi-layered construction that creates a chip free cover, scores really sharp and folds beautifully every time. With better runability and outstanding bulk, Nice C1S FBB is a pressroom performer. (It folds better than Tango…and it costs less too!) Available in: 10pt, 12pt, 14pt, 16pt, 18pt, 20pt and 24pt cove. #madeforpackaging

#NiceUltraOpaque—prints and finishes better than the leading #Cougar, #Lynx, or #Accent. Ultra Opaque is a premium paper that delivers exceptional value and performance. Its superior surface allows for flawless image reproduction, exceptional colour brilliance and ink adhesion. #FSCcertified for Indigo + toner presses. Available in: 60lb, 70lb, 80lb, 100lb Text—and 10pt, 12pt, 14pt, 16pt cover.
