Warren Launches New Board Swatch

Press release from the issuing company

Warren, the UK’s leading independent carton board, graphical board, and paper stockist, has announced that it is launching a new board swatch, illustrating a range of some 22 products from the world’s leading paper and board mills and manufacturers. 

The new board swatch illustrates a varied range of products, including - Folding box boards, white lined chipboards, Solid Bleached Sulphate boards, lined and unlined grades as well as speciality boards. All the products featured are either FSC® and PEFC™ Chain of Custody certified or are Recycled, apart from the air freshener and beermat boards.

With the launch of this new board swatch, Warren firmly believes that it now has the most comprehensive range in the trade and is confident that it has the product to suit any customer’s most demanding of print jobs. Coupled with a service level that is second-to-none and instant real-time stock information, Warren is ideally positioned to be the go-to supplier of choice.

Commenting on the launch of the new board swatch, Warren’s Managing Director, Kieran Ferguson, stated, “Given the increasing demand for high quality graphical and carton boards in the commercial print sector, we’ve updated our Product Swatch to give our growing customer base a simple tool to allow them to identify the right product for their jobs. The design chosen allows us to not only highlight an individual product’s suitability for print but also to demonstrate its own unique surface characteristics. This, combined, with information on stock service, provides our customers with a simple yet functional and informative tool.”

Starsky, Warren’s unmistakable mascot, has become a permanent fixture in the Warren branding, and as you would probably expect, the dapper little rabbit once again features prominently on the new swatch-making it instantly recognisable as a Warren product.

The new swatch has also been kept at the same size as the previous one, so those who are lucky enough to have retained a Warren swatch holder/desk tidy from the last time will be able to replace the old swatch with the brand new one.

The 140mm by 90mm swatch cover was printed on Ensocoat 415 ums/330gsm on a Komori Lithrone 28, using a four-colour process with gloss lamination. The heavier weight samples in the swatch were litho printed on a Heidelberg CD 102 using a four-colour process and water-based coating. The remaining samples were printed on a Komori Lithrone 28 using a four-colour process with a seal varnish.

Previously historically known only for its board products, Warren is now entering its third year of offering a range of quality, branded paper products. The company is a member of the AIMS Group, which is an organisation made up of leading independent paper and board merchants in the UK and Ireland; with individual members focussing on supplying their local regions enabling them to provide a superior level of service. Warren provides a regional service covering the East and West Midlands, the North East, and the South West areas.

Warren stocks a wide range of products that are FSC® and PEFC™ Chain of Custody certified and integrates ISO 14001 Environmental Management systems into its business activities. Warren’s 50 staff have over 470 years of industry experience to offer their customers, providing extensive knowledge and advice as part of their service and last year they celebrated 40 years of trading as an independent privately-owned company.
