The possibilities are endless when it comes to choosing a paper stock. We suggest a thick cotton stock of at least 110# for letterpress because cotton will compress more and allow for a beautiful impression. Of course, when it comes to cotton stocks the colors are a bit limiting so we’ve made a list of all the available stock options we believe are suitable for letterpress printing.
This is our most popular stock and one we keep in inventory. Lettra comes in 3 colors (Fluorescent White, Pearl White and Ecru) and is available in 90lb (great for digital printing combined with letterpress), 110lb and 220lb (ideal for printing double-sided). This is a 100% cotton stock and an environmentally friendly option.
A very beautiful stock from Italy that has a great texture and comes in a variety of subtle colors. The white and off-white stocks come pre-duplexed as well. You can purchase this stock in a variety of pre-cut sizes and the Arturo envelopes are uniquely beautiful, although they come with a more expensive price tag.
What can I say about this paper line? They have EVERYTHING from solid colored stocks of any color imaginable to patterned stocks and envelopes. French’s is a great place to turn if you want to stand out. Check out all their stock options here.
We suggest also checking out the line of heavier cardstocks that French’s carries, as these will allow a deeper impression on press.
Mohawk is a great place to turn for bright and colorful paper stocks. They have envelopes in a wide range of colors as well. They are a great line to check out, especially if you are looking for brightly color envelops to complete a print package.
