We are crushing all over the Curious Matter range. It has so many attractive qualities, like its flashy colour palette, sandy surface that is rough yet surprisingly smooth to touch AND the fact it’s also compatible with offset, embossing, screen and even dry toner printing. A complete package really, well almost…
We’ve fielded lots of questions lately about the stock’s suitability across the HP Indigo platform as it is not guaranteed for use on these machines. So we ran a print test using opaque white ink and CMYK. The stock was Sapphire coated first and we are pretty chuffed with the result. As you can see it does work, we just had to find someone willing to push the boundaries with us on this one!

Speak to your printer about coating Curious Matter if you’re running a digital job as only certain printers have coating capabilities.
A bit about Curious Matter:
The Curious Matter range made by Arjowiggins, is all about the tactile experience of the paper. It’s sand-like yet silky feel (because of the potato starch it’s coated with) will see your paws all over it, rubbing it and exclaiming ‘wow, hmmm, what does that feel like?’. Available in rich bold colours in 270gsm and 380gsm, think invitations, annual reports, business cards, brochures, swing tags and much more. Enjoy!
