August 21, 2007 -- [Cohoes, NY] – Everything you ever wanted to know about paper is rolled into one simple, concise and well organized booklet — Paper Basics. This educational tool by Mohawk Fine Papers Inc. was first introduced in 1990 and has since become the source of basic paper information for printers, merchants, designers, and educators.
Now part of the Ask Mohawk series, Paper Basics has been updated with a fresh design and the most current industry information. The booklet includes fundamental information such as how paper is made and the difference between paper types, explanations of paper qualities like formation and brightness, an at-a-glance envelope reference guide, and a “cheat sheet” of common paper jargon. Paper Basics has also been expanded to include a range of pull-out samples of paper finishes.
“This is a great reference tool for anyone involved in selling, buying, using, or printing paper. It’s the perfect tool for designers, print buyers, and printers to keep communication clear and make sure jobs run smoothly,” said Laura Shore, Senior Vice President Marketing Communications, Mohawk Fine Paper.
Paper Basics, and all the books in the Ask Mohawk series are available in both print and PDF format. PDFs can be downloaded from the PDF Library at www.mohawkpaper.com/resources.
