Malmero Perle' Sparkle Products

We have just recently found out that Gruppo Cordenons is discontinuing most of the Colors in the Malmero Perle' line.  We were so sad to hear this, as we really like the vibrant colors with the subtle sparkle smooth surface of this paper.  They will continue to manufacture the Blanc (WHITE) and the Noir (BLACK); but all other colors will be discontinued.  So you will notice them showing up in the OVERSTOCK--CLEARANCE Section at CutCardStock.com .  You will see the ORANGE, MANGUE (yellow), VERMILLON (red), ABYSSE (blue), and EMERAUDE (green) disappearing from our site as they sell out. 




CutCardStock will continue to sell the Malmero Perle' in Cover and Text in the Black & White color.  We will also continue to carry A2, A6, and A7 envelopes in both the Black & White.

New Products! & Customer's work

Introducing 2 new products at CutCardStock:
Neenah Classic Linen PEARL Card Stock--This pearlescent Linen cardstock is available in the following colors:  WHITE PEARL 84# Cover and 115# Cover, NATURAL WHITE PEARL 84# Cover, and GOLD PEARL 84# Cover.  At this time we do not know alot about how this cardstock handles ink.  We did have one of our customers who is an invitation designer run a test on it .  This is what she said about printing on it using her high end Canon Inkjet Printer: "I also printed on the Neenah metallic.
Oddly, the white does not print or hold ink as good as the ivory & gold.  Very strange.  I will bring them for you to see.
They definitely have to DRY before they can be touched, but they absorb and dry much quicker than the Stardream.   The gold dried a lot slower, the same as Stardream, omething very odd I noticed!
Overall, I would say it is comparable to the Curious Iridescent quality.
They double print fairly well too if you let them dry first.

They are gorgeous, I will definitely try adding them to my upgrades for customers. "

Royal Complements CANVAS Finish BRIGHT WHITE 100# Cardstock .  This embossed canvas finish is a great cardstock for those looking for textured cardstock.  This 96 brightness Card Stock has a canvas finish on one side and it is smooth on the back side.  It is Acid and lignin free for  great quality that does not deteriorate!

  
One of our customers Sharon Hockinson from Spokane, Washington sent us some of her work using CutCardstock's Greengrocer's Brown Bag KRAFT Cardstock.  She writes: "I just got my GreenGrocer paper bag stock from you and am very excited to be working on gluing my photography to it.  This is what I have so far for an upcoming art show/fair.  Hope you enjoy.  

Description of work:  Photography.  I am trying to display my otherwise framed or matted photos in a new way, on greeting cards - but I also wanted to showcase recycling.  Here I have a photo of the group of my work I am putting on the cards and the single photo I have a close-up of was taken in our local Waste-To-Energy Plant.  I call it the "wall of garbage".  It will soon be recycled into energy for our city and others."
 
A special thank you to Sharon for taking the time to send us some of her work, she has a website be sure to check it out :  www.shockinson.com
