Get reacquainted with the EAMES Papers. They are now a part of the Design Collection of papers from Neenah. EAMES features texture and color inspired by the architecture and design collections of Charles and Ray Eames. With this refresh, EAMES is now offered in their three most popular finishes: Canvas, Diffused and the soft Vellum. The distinctive Canvas finish is reminiscent of a painter's canvas. The Diffused finish is a crepe-like texture available in a 50 text only. It is perfect for fly sheets and belly bands. Don't let the partially transparent look fool you. This delicate-looking paper is strong with water and tear resistance. And we love the soft, toothy and subtle finish of EAMES Vellum. You probably do, too. EAMES papers are recycled with 30% post consumer fiber (excluding the Architecture finish). It is available in a range of weights from 24 Writing to 120 Double Thich Cover.

If you're missing the Weave finish in EAMES, look to ESSE. It's a great alternative. We'll meet this Design Collection Paper next as we go through the eleven grades that make up this new collection of papers. While supplies last, there is still some inventory left on the floor at Neenah in the Weave finish. An O-K paper rep can look into that for you.

Meet Canaletto, the first of the eleven grades within the Neenah Design Collection that we'd like to introduce you to. Made in Italy and "truly" felt, Canaletto "Grana Grossa" is softly marked with a felt texture on both sides of the sheet. You'll love the way it feels to the touch. It has excellent stiffness and bulk and a surface sizing for quality printing. It is produced with 20% cotton and 80% ECF (elementally cholrine free) pulp. Canaletto is available in just two colors: Premium White and Bianco; which is somewhere in between white and natural. Note: the Premium White is FSC certified.

Canaletto is available in wide range of weights: 85 Text, 60 Cover, 78 Cover, 111 Cover and 222 Double Thick Cover. And it's packed in small quantity packages just days away at the Neenah warehouse so small orders are not a problem. The lighter weights packs contain 125 sheets per package while the heavier weights contain just 50 sheets. And don't forget, there's matching envelopes also. Use Canaletto when you want to add a touch a elegance to any creative print project.
