The Fabric of History
We can trace the origins of paper production back to ancient China, where it was fabricated by hand from the fibres of mulberry bark. The knowledge of paper making spread throughout Central Asia and India and then into Europe where paper mills were set up from the 13th century using a variety of materials. By the 18th century, mechanisation led to the creation of more sophisticated paper-making techniques, with a gradual move to wood and chemical pulps and step increases in the speed and quality of production processes.
The past 50 years have seen new innovations and a greater focus on reducing the environmental impact of paper production. Paper can now be made lighter, more quickly and with reduced energy consumption. It’s an amazingly versatile product, capable of carrying multiple finishes and is put to use every day protecting and promoting brands around the world. Originally intended as a substrate for writing and printing, a remarkable array of paper products is available to consumers in the 21st century.
Commitment to Quality
Strut and Fibre has developed an exclusive collection of print materials using finest quality of paper stocks available. There are three levels of choice, quality and weight, starting with Baseline 350gsm white board card, then moving up to Ascender 500gsm duplexed white board card, concluding with exclusive Apex 700gsm duplexed card with coloured-on-white stock and metallic foiling option. A6 postcards use Ascender 500gsm duplexed white board, while our 50x70cm prints are produced on 200gsm white paper.
We believe that it’s not only in the quality of our design and finish where you’ll see the difference. It’s in the quality, weight and texture in your hand where you’ll feel the difference.
