May 23, 2017 – Mohawk, a North American manufacturer of fine papers, envelopes and specialty substrates for commercial and digital printing, has introduced its new fine paper line made with pure cotton fiber — Strathmore Impress.

To celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Strathmore brand, Mohawk said it thought it would be fitting to craft a new paper to honour the heritage of Strathmore and the “innovative spirit” of Mohawk. Strathmore Impress is offered in multiple shades, weights and sizes and allows the seamless combination of digital printing with letterpress, engraving and foil stamping, says Mohawk.  

“Since 1892, the Strathmore name has been synonymous with the finest American made papers,” said Chris Harrold, VP and creative director at Mohawk. “Given that 2017 was the 125th birthday of Strathmore, we thought it would be great to launch a new line that brings legendary craftsmanship to a new generation of letterpress printers, emerging social stationers and discriminating designers.”

“Strathmore Impress has been designed with a tactile, luxurious finish but also engineered using proprietary i-Tone surface treatment which allows printers to easily combine digital and impact processes such as letterpress on a single sheet,” noted Mike Madura, Mohawk VP product development/management.

The paper line is available in two established shades of white: Ultimate White and Soft White along with two new colours: Light Gray and Light Pink. The line will be available in 18pt for digital presses, as well as 20pt and 40pt for traditional printing techniques in a range of sizes from 8 ½ x 11 to 26 x 40.
