Printing

Inks: Standard offset inks may be used when printing on SAVOY. Because it is manufactured from 100% pure cotton, SAVOY is very absorbent and will dry considerably faster than our other specialty papers.

(If mottling occurs when printing certain colors, it may be helpful to add opaque white to ink formulation).

Design and PrePress

Design and PrePress: Our paper stock charts list all sheet sizes with grain direction last. As for all papers, binding and folding SAVOY parallel to the grain direction is always recommended.

Dot Gain: Printing on SAVOY will result in similar dot gain as printing on other uncoated paper. Expected dot gain on SAVOY will be approximately 15%.

Line Screen: In general, line screens ranging from 150-175 are used for printing on SAVOY.

Finishing

Varnish & Aqueous Coating: As with all papers, varnishing or aqueous coating SAVOY after printing can help to protect the printed area.

Foil Stamping: SAVOY foil stamps beautifully. As with most processes, we strongly recommend pre-testing as there are many variables (types of foils, complexity of the design, pressure, environment, etc…)

Scoring & Folding: SAVOY will score and fold beautifully. All SAVOY weights (80# text, 92# cover, 118# cover) should be scored prior to folding, to ensure the best possible fold. As for all papers, folding with the grain direction is preferred. We recommend a rounded channel score with a minimum width of 2.5 times the caliper of the sheet. SAVOY is a single-ply paper (not pasted) making SAVOY cover weights ideal for converting and packaging applications.
