[Cohoes, NY – August 03, 2015] Mohawk, North America’s largest privately-owned manufacturer of fine papers, envelopes and specialty substrates for commercial and digital printing, announces a redesigned swatchbook for its Strathmore Writing, Text and Cover papers. 

Fourth in a series of nine new Mohawk swatchbooks, the Strathmore Writing Text & Cover swatchbook has been designed to make the paper specification process clearer, easier and more inspirational for designers, printers, stationers and paper enthusiasts.

Four new heritage colors are introduced in the swatchbook, curated from the Strathmore Archives: Dusk Blue, Golden Olive, Riviera Rose and Pyro Brown. The swatchbook also includes Strathmore favorites—25% Cotton Writing, genuine felt Grandee, deckle-edged Pastelle, unique Enhance silk and celebrated Cambric Linen. 

This hefty new resource is a paper specifier’s dream with a Quick Spec section which provides a quick, organized overview of colors, finishes and weights available within the paper grade. Following is a Browse section, which allows users to dive deeper into the specification process 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.  A Details section contains in-depth paper information and specific printing resources.
