6 REASONS TO CHOOSE COLORPLAN
50 COLOURS FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
Continual research by our product development team maintains a comprehensive and inspiring palette. Consistent and fade-resistant colour is guaranteed by using virgin pulp and dyed-through pigmentation using lightfast dyes.
AVAILABLE IN LARGE OR SMALL QUANTITIES
Colorplan is manufactured in the UK, and we stock the full range in depth, making it readily available. Small quantities are also obtainable, with minimum orders of 25 A1 sheets, 500 A4 sheets, 500 machine-made envelopes and 200 handmade envelopes.
CREATED FOR PRINT PERFORMANCE
Colorplan is a premium uncoated stock, refined in the paper-making process for print and finishing performance. A mix of long and short virgin fibres and the twin-wire manufacturing technique give it the ideal bulk and rigidity for packaging.
25 EMBOSSED TEXTURES
While Colorplan has a natural antique finish, every shade is available in 25 embossed textures. The service involves an all-over surface embossing to one side of the sheet, with a limited selection of double-sided textures.
8 WEIGHTS & MATCHING ENVELOPES
Colorplan is available in a total of eight weights: from 100gsm text weight to a maximum single board weight of 700gsm. Matching Colorplan envelopes are also available; DL and C6 sizes are machine-made, and bespoke sizes are handmade to order.
As well as being fully recyclable and biodegradable, Colorplan is FSC certified, meaning that it is made with, or contains, pulp from well-managed forests. It is also Heavy Metal Free and
because the bleaching process avoids the use of harmful chlorine, it is classified ECF.
