from the most trusted name in 100% tree free cotton paper, Crane and Company. The special texture of this double thick 220 lb heavy weight card stock paper maximizes the letterpress imprint. Letterpress printing gives any character or image a 3-dimensional aspect, because the ink is pushed into the paper. How visibly it presses into the paper depends on the stock itself as well as on the image being printed.
Lettra's fluffy surface takes a deep impression beautifully. It has the feel of fabric and the look of hand made art paper, and it gets right down to business on press.
Please note: Due to the fiberous make up of this DTC Cotton stock, there may be some fraying on the edges of the stock. We make every attempt to cut these away, but the nature of the stock can result in a slight fraying of the paper edge. We have found that the Savoy DTC Card stock has a bit less fraying on it edges when compared to the Crane's Lettra.
Crane's Lettra was chosen as my "go-to" stock for several reasons: the heavy 220lb pearl white paper not only letterpresses beautifully, but can also be edge-painted providing an extra pop of vibrant color, and is one of the most luxurious USA made papers I've been privileged to work with. --Kathryn, CutCardStock Design Team Member
We purchased the Esse pearlized paper for event invitations. CutCardStock was the only place we could find that sold this paper in 8.5"x11" so it would fit our printer. It shipped a day faster than expected!
