Sample Department

We're proud of our product photography.  The descriptions of each paper were written by experts with decades of experience.  But until Apple comes up with a way for you to reach into your screen and feel the paper, there’s no replacement for a good old fashioned sample held in your hand.  

Don't see the samples you want?  Contact us and let us know how we can help.  One of our Paper Experts can help put together a custom sampler for you to match your needs.

We make every effort to ensure the sample kits are complete, but on occasion due to availability, quantity and sample size might vary.
