There is now a landscape option in A4 and DL sizes, in both saddle stitched and perfect bound brochures.

Rives Tweed business cards
This classic paper stock is now back on business cards due to popular demand. This paper does exactly what it says on the tin: it gives a tweed-style texture to print, and if we’re being honest, we just can’t get enough of it. Here are the need-to-know stats about our titillating tweed paper:
The texture: Rives Tweed paper is a tweed-style textured paper, giving the appearance of finely woven fabric running in neat diagonal lines. So unusual is this effect that it proves difficult to resist the temptation to touch it and see what it’s like.
The print: The surface of this paper is uncoated, so text is really readable in all lighting. Printed inks will be absorbed further into the fibres of the paper, making the appearance of the finished print look flatter and more understated. Solid, block colours will look really enriched, with the tweed pattern giving depth.
The thickness: Rives Tweed paper comes in 350gsm.
It’s pretty perfect for business cards with a plain yet smart design that has a little unique edge, or strong colours that need added depth.
Rounded corners for invites
The joy of curvy corners is now available for flat invitations.
Rounded corners are a finish offered for our business cards, leaflets, flyers and now flat invitations, and involve trimming the sharp, square corners off to create a smooth, rounded edge. A special cutting device is used to achieve this for a consistent finish.
It’s a great design option meaning your invites will stand out from the crowd, and now your invites can be received without jabbing your guests unintentionally. If you’re a well-rounded individual (sorry about the awful pun) then these are perfect for your parties.
