Amazing… 3D Model, made from metallic paper

3D Model made from Curious Metallic

I love sharing talent and am always amazed by the designs produced with the simple everyday product called “paper”. Brian shared this photo of his 3D Model Airplane created from our Curious Metallic 92lb Ice Gold Card Stock Paper.

I incidentally came across this impressive work of paper engineering when he was kind enough to run our ‘help desk’ through a test and used this photo as part of the testing process.  Thank you Brian for sharing your work and I hope the rest of you readers find it as amazing as I do!

If you click thru to enlarge the bottom photo, you can find his copyright which shows how to reach out to Brian in the event his talent can be used to enhance your project.

Interesting fact to know, A-Envelopes and Baronial Envelopes can share common sizes – example: 5-1/2 Bar is the same dimension as A2, the defining differences are the flaps and the seam construction. If these factors are not important to your project, then best to move forward with the envelope offering the possibilities of making your project a success.

Starry eyed for Stardreams

Stardream Metallics offer so many shades to be adored.  These jewel toned metallics are almost dreamy! Once in a while we have to say goodbye to some of our favorite beauties, but it is very uncommon when it comes to this vast line of metallics.

30 plus Shades of Colorful Metallic Papers

More than 30 beautiful metallic shades

Our latest farewell is a sweet good bye to Serpentine, Malachite and the original shade of Lapis Lazuli.  Don’t be alarmed, Lapis Lazuli is still present, it just received a slight face lift and we are calling it the NEW Lapis Lazuli.  Also, we at paper-papers are saying good-bye to Emerald for a time.  We might be swayed to grab it back up if the demand is high, but as for now, we are letting Emerald rest in peace. (updated 8/2013 ==> Emerald has been revived and now active again – some other colors have be discontinued, View current post Cordenon makes new friends)

This beautiful italian line of metallic papers is laser friendly but does not play nice with inkjet printers.  Be sure to know your output  when planning a project and printing on Stardream, dry toner options work well along with other professional processes.  Wonderful 81 Text and 105 Cover make creative projects pop with quality and  brilliance.

We stock folio paper, cut paper and lots of envelopes…check out our broad range of product offerings from the very popular metallic choice, Stardream Metallics!

Cougar Paper – Paper Weight Chart

Cougar by Domtar is one of our most popular selling paper and envelopes.  It has proven over the years to be a quality product at a reasonable cost.  Additionally, Cougar has transformed itself to be more than an offset printing sheet.  As it keeps up with paper trends and market demands, it is offering varying weights and finishes. If you are trying to find the Classic Cougar Sheet yet find yourself a little overwhelmed, see the grid below.  This is a simple grid to assist with weight, finish, opacity, brightness and bulk factor (caliper).
