Mohawk Options + Navajo Swatchbook is ready to inspire


The Options + Navajo Swatchbook is third in a series of nine, newly redesigned Mohawk swatchbooks that are more inspirational than ever.


Options + Navajo feature Mohawk’s exclusive Inxwell surface technology. Inxwell combines the tactile feel of uncoated paper with the advantages of superior ink holdout, lower dot gain and significantly increased opacity. As a result, Options + Navajo prints better than any other uncoated paper in the world. Ink sits on top of Inxwell papers resulting in better color, greater detail, and outstanding photographic reproduction in all popular printing processes.



The new swatchbook showcases six premium white shades and three distinct finishes, including three 100% PCW choices. It begins with a Quick Spec – a quick, organized overview of colors, finishes and weights.  A new key system indicates offset papers and digital papers.



Next is a Browse section, which allows users to dive deeper to identify finish, shade and weight. Each waterfall within Browse contains information about available colors and weights, including one sample of every shade available within each finish.

The swatchbook ends with a Details section which contains physical properties and important paper attributes that were previously only available separately in the Mohawk Code Book.


Only the cleanest, highest quality post-consumer waste fibers are used in Mohawk Options + Navajo; 100% of the electricity used to manufacture Mohawk Options and Mohawk Navajo is matched with Green-e certified Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) from wind power projects.


The new Mohawk swatchbook series was developed by Hybrid Design of San Francisco to be both beautiful and inspirational, and to get designers excited about using color and texture in new ways.

The Options + Navajo swatchbook was produced by McCarty Printing, Erie, PA.


Issue No. 06 of the Mohawk Maker Quarterly is a companion piece to the Options + Navajo swatchbook, providing thought-provoking inspiration through a diverse selection of Options + Navajo papers.


A total of nine new swatchbooks will be introduced over the next several months. To receive one of your own, contact your local paper merchant or order here.
