Paper Plus

5 Dec

A couple of weeks ago, our Process and Materials class took a trip to Paper Plus, a local (franchise) paper supplier here in Chattanooga. We were introduced to the wonderful world of paper by Alex, who showed us the difference between coated and uncoated paper, and stressed to us the importance of grain direction and length. We talked about watermarks and how, although cheesy, certain clients still demand them as a time-tested symbol of authenticity and sophistication. It’s mostly law offices and the like that request them, and it is rather expensive to produce. The wonderful people at Paper Plus were nice enough to let us completely ravage their paper sample shelves, taking armloads of Neenah samples with us. Thanks so much, Paper Plus, for letting us in, showing us around, and letting us clean you out!
