French Paper – Made In The U.S.A.
I feel the key element to a successful design is how is feels in someone’s hands. That is where paper plays a key role, and you want to be sure you make a strong impact. I had the opportunity to see a presentation by Kim French about her families paper company, French Paper. During this presentation I was able to see the benefits Graphic Design had many for their business and what can happen when you trust your designer/s with a project. The final result is inspiring.
Established in 1871, the family-owned French Paper Company is one of the last American, small, independent paper mills. Since 1922, all French Papers are made using 100% renewable electricity generated by French’s own green hydroelectric plant (saving over one million barrels of fossil fuels to date). French manufactures premium custom paper for graphic arts, printing, packaging, writing, text, cover, specialty, and gift applications. French’s products are used in corporate brochures, pocket folders, corporate annual reports, advertising inserts, direct mail, business cards, hang tags, posters, scrapbooks, corporate identity programs, invitations, personal stationery, labels, and high-end packaging for point-of-purchase advertising. – French Paper
