The new Classic Crest® swatchbook is here with eight, count em; EIGHT new colors. This swatchbook is only one component of Neenah's total re-introduction of their Classic® line of papers. Four swatchbooks have been melded into just three with a new Classic Textures swatch housing your old favorites Classic Laid and Columns and introducing two new finishes into the line: Woodgrain and Techweave. Classic Linen finishes up the trilogy of swatchbooks.

The eight new colors include three grays - Cool Gray, Cadet Gray, and Charcoal.  Along with that,  two new blues have been added - Cobalt and Chambray. And rounding out the new colors are Aubergine, Military, Imperial Red and a gorgeous new shade of white - Bare White. You are probably wondering why you need another shade of white but when you see it for yourself you'll understand. Bare White is a simply stunning balanced white that sits in between Avon Brilliant White and Classic Natural White. If that wasn't enough, there are three new duplexes, too - Aubergine/Solar White, Cadet Gray/Solar White, and Military/Bare White.
Cool Gray is a light shade of gray somewhere in between Antique Gray and Pewter.
Cadet Gray is a rich gray tone that rounds out the gray bunch.
Chambray is a fresh twist on the color of denim.
Aubergine is a deep, comforting and rich purple reminiscent of eggplant.
Military is a warm, rich, natural looking green.
Cobalt is a trendy, knock-your-socks-off, vivid blue.
Imperial Red is a fresh, bright red with a hint of orange.

Our next post will introduce you to the two new finishes Woodgrain and Techweave. To get your copy of these new swatchbooks, get in touch with your Olmsted-Kirk sales representative.

Have a Super Smooth Day

A OK 01
Making lists, outlining meetings, setting your weekly agenda, and simply doodling ideas are all ways you set pencil to paper to make your day A O-K. In 1961 NASA astronauts coined and popularized this phrase. The term "A-OK" is used to tell the launch tower that "all systems are go".  With our "Accent Your Day" multi-pad promotion printed on the crisp, super smooth finish of Accent Opaque you'll be A O-K, too.  Think of this swatchbook-sized promotion as your paper nook to coordinate all the things in your busy life. With five seperate task pads produced on 80 Text, you'll have a place for everything that's running through that brain of yours. Jot, sketch, or simply write a quick note. Tear a sheet from a pad and hand information to someone who needs it. There's always a fresh sheet ready for your next big idea.
Its sturdy cover is made of Accent, smooth, 120 cover folded and doubled to make a reliable, rugged carrier. Inside the spine you will find little details in silver foil. A message to  "Have a Super Smooth Day"  reminding you to keep fighting the good fight. Included in the promotion is a custom, red, No. 2 pencil.
