A SWEET idea in tree free paper

A Very Environmental Offering – AVEO

AVEO is a new Paper Line offered by Reich Paper Mill. We now have stock on our floor with the offering of White Sugar and Brown Sugar.  This product is offered with 3 weights, see weights listed at bottom with example products associated.

This paper line is naturally TREE FREE due to being manufactured with 90% Sugar Cane stalk remnants and 10% Textile linen/hemp remnants.

Our 1 line summary of AVEO would be: Creativity and responsible Ingenuity all rolled into one paper line!

Checkout this new product and let us know how it works for your projects!

To better explain the process, below is a more extensive explanation from the Manufacturer’s swatch book:

“A Very Environmental Offering — AVEO is a tree free paper manufactured from 90% Sugar Cane fiber (bagasse) which is left over after the sugar cane stalks are crushed to extract their juice. This sustainable and renewable resource has traditionally been burned or placed in a landfill.
The balance 10% of AVEO is a combination of linen and hemp which are both left over from the textile industry. This material is added to offer additional folding and strength characteristics and would also end up in a landfill if it were not used to make AVEO.
Because AVEO paper is made from mostly sugarcane pulp, sometimes small particles of the stalk can be seen and is to be expected. Although usually very clean, sometimes small brown spots or brown fibers can appear in White Sugar and sometimes small white spots can appear in Brown Sugar.
AVEO is recyclable, biodegradable, acid free and elemental chlorine free. AVEO® is a registered trademark of Reich Paper”

Translucent Paper

Paper has many trends it will travel and one popular trend has been the colorful translucent paper. This unique paper is usually added to an existing project as an overlay or accent. Unfortunately this type of paper has shown a trend decline over the past years. As all can expect, the demand drives the market and since this demand as significantly reduce, so has the making of this paper. One line strongly affected by this industry change has been CT Translucent color choices. As we work on keeping demanding products on our floor for quick ship, this product’s “color selections” are being sold out with no replenish date for now.  Currently all colors are on sale and will remain on clearance until all stock has been depleted.

We will continue to stock and replenish most of the Clear / White Translucent paper including the VERY popular Inkjet Translucent.

Another trend we have noticed is Color Shimmer/Metallic Papers coupled with the white translucent papers. Presuming since the shimmer papers have expanded to lovely palette, most customers have decided to bring the color to their projects with heavy card stock and compliment with these neutral translucent papers.

However you best create, we wish you the most enjoyment and look forward to seeing your magnificent works of art!!

 

 

Parchtone Paper and Envelope Updates

Parchtone Paper and Envelopes are being re-organized on our floor. We are moving out all of the standard 65lb Cover and 60lb Text so we can concentrate on stocking our high quality weights. We will focus on 4 colors: Aged, Gunmetal, Natural and White with our weights of text paper being 80lb Text (120gsm) and our card stock paper stocked in 80lb Cover. Additionally, our envelope stock is transitioning to 80lb Text as to allow for a higher quality offering in these 4 parchment shades. We will keep #10, A1 & A6 as a 60lb envelope yet moving A2 & A7 to be 80lb Text, along with introducing A9 envelopes. We hope you enjoy these new offerings of weights which will provide a broader assortment of parchment papers on our site when mixing manufacturer options.

Sometimes we just need a simple Thanks

Great project produced by Tracy for Oh My! Handmade. She included templates for easy to print 2-up Thank you cards but also included Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign files to help you make it your own! So simple, yet robust once the Adobe files are added.

What is nice about this template, you can print it on any paper you choose.  Select shimmers to make it elegant or fiber papers to make it rustic and of course, pure cotton can create an impression.  Different papers can set it apart to best set the mood and environment for this perfect Thank you card!

This 2-up can be printed on standard Letter Size Card Stock (or Text Paper for notes)  & once trimmed, will fit into an A6 Envelope. Please note that A6 ENVELOPES are 4.75-x-6.5-inches, therefore your insert will need to be trimmed to approximately 4.5-x-6.25-inches.

If you are familiar with the softwares, you are able to change your size to accommodate any insert and envelope you desire.

Suggestions and hints:

  • Take a standard 8.5-x-11 Card Stock Paper, Portrait direction, print 2-up with no trimming, but cut in half = A9 FLAT CARD which will fit into an A9 Envelope.
  • Take a standard 8.5-x-11 Card Stock Paper, Landscape direction, print 4-up with no trimming, but cut in quarters = A2 FLAT CARD which will fit into an A2 Envelope.

Give thanks with a free printable thank you gift | Oh My! Handmade.

Fall Wreath Creation

Another amazing tutorial by Lia. She shows how to create a fall wreath and garland. We are always thrilled she was this creative and used our shimmery papers.

She used 5 popular Text Weight Metallic Papers:

Bronze Text, Copper Text, Ruby Text, Antique Gold Text & Gold Leaf Text

We love to share creative ideas! You’ll find this to be a high quality tutorial with beautiful photos, template downloads and much more. Check out Lia Griffith’s blog for more creative ideas and Happy Autumn!

(Just a reminder, Text Weight Paper feels much like the weight of letterhead paper, this is easily folded and workable for this project. Please do not confuse this with Cover Weight that feels much more like business card paper)
