Allow us to introduce you to the newly, updated Strathmore Writing, Text and Cover swatchbook. It's huge. In the front, you'll find a "Quick Spec" area to quickly find what you are looking for with an easy-to-use color, finish and weight chart. Also in this section, you'll see "black dot" icons on each paper that indicates if the sheet you are looking at is available for offset or digital printing. And, if you're running your digital job on a HP Indigo - you'll want to look for a black dot with "Di" in it.

Sarah Jacoby, illustrator and designer from Philadelphia introduces us to the Mummer’s mask. The Mummer’s encapsulate what Sarah loves about Philadelphia: its inherent strangeness, irreverence and history. She created a hand-cut mask made of slivers of Classic® Linen, Classic Crest® and Classic® Laid. The "must be seen and worn" mask has been photographed and printed 4 color process digitally on Classic® Linen Digital on a HP Indigo 7000.

Faun Chapin & Meg Paradise are designers and founders of Guts & Glory. They have used the idea of music to represent Oakland, California. A flat foil stamp in gold of the duo’s line illustrations are stunning on Classic Crest® Pewter. The same gold foil is used for the label on the attached “spinning” record made of Crest, stipple finish in Epic Black. Raised UV creates the unique surface texture on the “vinyl” record.

Russell Shaw is a multidisciplinary designer and illustrator from Atlanta, Georgia. His “Atlanta on 30,000 Calories” fan book takes us through this foodie city. Printed on several different shades of white in pure and fibered sheets; you see how the crisp mint and dense black inks pop differently on each of the different white sheets of Classic® Laid and Classic Crest® while working effectively together. Shaw’s whimsical illustrations and hand-lettering are brilliant.
