Welcome to the stone age

If you have a stationery fetish just as we do here at Scribblevision, we know this is going to give you a tingle.

We love our digital creations, that's true, but we also adore the heady world of print, where what you see you can also smell and feel.

So when we received a sample pack recently from one of our paper suppliers, there was a little tap dance in the studio.

Our sample pack contained a small stack of stone paper – and it feels as cool, literally, as it looks.

Stone paper is made of waste material from limestone quarries that is ground into a powder and mixed with high-density polyethylene (HDPE). It’s as smooth as the bay on a windless day.

It can be recycled along with other plastics and, over time, will break down in sunlight.

What’s more it folds, prints and cuts just like regular paper but is tear, grease and water resistant.

Anti-static and acid free, it offers little appeal to hungry bugs.

We like the idea of using stone paper for a myriad of printed materials – think menus, manuals, all-weather maps and charts, labels and brochures or even gift boxes. Anywhere, really, where moisture might impact on the longevity of your printed materials.

So, for your next print project, why not think outside the (cardboard) box.
