The endless uses of Metallic Paper in the Art Supplies World
Did you know? Using a piece of Mylar between the paper and emulsion makes metallic paper
There are so many uses for metallic paper in the art supplies industry, that they are only limited by your imagination. Document printing, invitation printing, all types of stationery printing, card making, origami, mixed media, you can draw on it, use it in printmaking, well you get the gist.
With as much experience as we have had in the industry we mostly see metallic paper and card being used for printed stationery and card making. Our metallic paper range comes in a full spectrum of colours from the popular antique white mist (white paper with a gold fleck), metallic white which looks like a pearl metallic paper and crystal (white paper with a silver fleck) to our popular black metallic paper. Our paper range includes 110gsm and 120gsm weights; there is not much difference between the thicknesses of the two papers. They both print beautifully through bubble jet and laser printers and photocopiers, we have been printing on them for over a decade. We do recommend a test print though if printing at home as there are so many brands of printers available that we can’t vouch for them all. Matching our metallic papers we have metallic cardstock, envelopes and DIY stationery. In that being said if you use metallic rose paper for your invitation, you might want to use a metallic rose pouch or envelope to put all your bits and pieces in. Or you might want to co-ordinate some metallic rose cardstock into the place cards, seating charts or ceremony covers if you are getting married.
If you are all about designing and making your own stationery we LOVE that but if you need a helping hand we have a fully-fledged graphic design studio. You can either purchase one of our downloadable invitation files, have a custom design made for you or bring in your USB with the graphic design template completely set up and we can print and cut your stationery for you. We can do as much or as little as you like.
Create your own cards, certificates, invitations, letterheads, presentations, reports, resumes and more with confidence and complete the set with matching cardstock or envelopes in C5, C6, DL, 11B, 150x150mm, 160x160mm and 130x130mm sizes. If you can’t find your colour let us know and we will pull it from our warehouse for you.
