wild showcase
WILD cropped

WILD papers from the Neenah Design Collection are made with 35% cotton and have a heavy vellum finish. The cotton content gives WILD durable strength and luxurious softness. The texture is "wild". Think of a felt and a vellum sheet combined for a surface of not so subtle hills and valleys that are perfect for letterpress and embossing. It comes in only one color, White, which is neutral in shade. WILD is available in 110 Text, 111 Cover, 166 Cover and yes, we are about to say it... 314 Cover. The extreme bulk of WILD papers gives you the thickness you need to make your projects stand out. All the weights are solid sheets, no double thicks so you will get impressive results for folding and die cutting which make it ideal for packaging applications. We often get calls for coaster type paper. This is what you'll want. All weights are suitable for offset lithography except for the 314 Cover.

Need we say more? Ohh... and it's FSC certified.
