Neenah Classic Crest® FSC

Classic Crest® Papers are easy to print on when following these simple hints. It is recommended to pre-test all printing procedures prior to press time to ensure the desired results are achieved.


Print Classic Crest like any conventional uncoated paper. We recommend heat resistant, wax free ink if you plan to follow lithography with xerographic or laser printing technologies.


Keep Classic Crest products wrapped until the moment of printing. It is essential to let the paper acclimate, for a minimum of 24 hours – longer during cold weather – in the press room while still wrapped in mill packaging. Keep Classic Crest products covered during drying, between passes and prior to any finishing work. Pressroom conditions should be as close as possible to 68 degrees, and 45-60% relative humidity.


Varnish is optional as a surface protector.


To properly score and fold Classic Crest, use a rounded channel score with a 2 point rule and a 0.040” or 0.050” channel matrix. Score with the grain, using a light letterpress score for maximum control. On large projects with less stringent quality requirements on-press litho-scoring may be acceptable. Fold into the bead of the score.


Classic Crest is suitable for all standard binding processes. It is important to plan for proper grain direction in all binding applications. Grain direction should run parallel to the spine for optimum results.


in writing and text weights, as well as label stock.


Thermography, flexographic printing, letterpress printing, gravure printing, screen printing, foil stamping, engraving, embossing, die cutting, saddle stitching, perfect binding.

Only cardstock I use

I am an avid cardmaker and this is my favorite and the only cardstock I use, not only for the beautiful way it accepts alcohol markers, but because it makes for a great card base. I also have it in Linen for when I need something extra special.

My favorite!

I have been using this cardstock for many years with my Copic markers. It takes alcohol inks very well with minimal wicking or bleed through. The colors blend beautifully on this cardstock.

Good paper, but not what I wanted

I wanted good quality Neenah paper to create my wedding invitations. I was going to double up on this paper, meaning that I would print one sheet then another and glue them back to back to get a thicker card out of it for my wedding invitations. This is also because my printer doesn't print double sided. However, I found this paper to be way too smooth for wedding invitations. It gives no character to the invitation. It is good quality paper so I will be keeping it for other projects, just not what i wanted this time around..

Excellent paper

This is a superior paper that allows ink from markers, to flow smoothly without any pressure. It gives fantastic results, allowing the user to blend and tone. I have used a lot of different papers but if you want professional results you will not be disappointed with this product. It is a bit expensive, but this is due to S&H plus import duties, as I live in Canada. Having said that, it is still a little cheaper than purchasing locally, and is worth it. I highly recommend this paper to anyone that requires paper for crafts, such as card making etc., especially for use with markers.

Smooth and luxurious

This cardstock is a dream to print on with my inkjet printer. I like to print my own using digital designs I have downloaded from the internet. I can print on both sides of this paper using a photo setting and the ink does not bleed through. The surface is so smooth and silky--it just feels luxurious. It is expensive, which is why my sister and I are splitting a ream. I'm afraid I'm going to go through my half awfully fast, though.

Best cs to use with Copic Markers

So far best card stock for coloring with Copic markers. Will bleed a little only if oversaturating card stock. The smoothness of it allows for great blending.

Best cardstock for use with Copic Marker

I use this product for stamping line art stamps which I color with Copic markers or any other markers. Love it! Super smooth! I also like this because I can run it through my laser printer (I use the Manual tray) yet it's sturdy enough as a card base!
