More About This Product

About this Product

Fine textured papers are sought out by those who wish to communicate something more than just words and images. And linen texture has long been the standard for communicating taste and class. HOWARD Linen offers the tactile and visual interest that makes annual reports pop, business correspondence sing, and brochures beam. When this paper is closely viewed, one can see the warp and weave - even the slight irregularities that makes actual linen so appealing. As a backdrop for your printing, it provides a very interesting - yet soft-spoken - texture. Often the first choice for business cards, HOWARD Linen is also excellent for report covers, folders, menus,envelopes personal and business correspondence and stationery packages. And because the writing weight is designed for desktop use, it will print perfectly on your office laser or ink-jet. HOWARD Linen is also the perfect choice for embossing, yielding spectacular results. Bright White has a brightness level of 96 for the formal look of a starched white shirt, and the lively ivory has a softer, warmer, more natural appeal. And, HOWARD Linen is manufactured acid free with archival properties for longer life. When you're looking for a little added flair, try HOWARD Linen?it's patterned for success.

Neenah Paper Howard Linen

Howard Linen 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.

OFFSET INKS:

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

HANDLING:

Keep Howard Linen 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 Howard Linen 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:

Varnish is optional as a surface protector.

FOLDING AND SCORING:

To properly score Howard Linen, use a 2 point rounded channel score. For the backing matrix, it is recommended to use a minimum width of 2.5 times the caliper of the sheet to be scored, plus 28/1000”. Score with the grain, using a light letterpress score (not on-press litho-scoring). Fold into the bead of the score.

BINDING:

Howard Linen 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.

LASER AND INKJET GUARANTEED

TechReady® 24 lb writing sheet is guaranteed for laser and ink jet printing. This guarantee is extended to preprinted forms as long as the laser and ink jet printing is applied to unprinted areas of the paper. TechReady® is a registered trademark of Neenah Paper Paper.

Elegance

This paper is great. It's very crisp and clean. The colors were true, and amazingly the sizing was EXACT. Normally when you have paper say it's 8.5"X11" you end up with an approximate 1-2/8" margin of difference. Not so with this paper! It was spot on every single measurement.

It has a wonderful weight to it that made my save the dates and invitations look very professional, although I had to really fiddle with my printer to make sure it could handle the weight. It took some trial and error before I could get the rollers to grab and I basically had to help push the paper through. To be fair, I have a newer, professional level office printer, so I'd not like it's dinky. Just as a note, when printing an image, you can see the fiber lines through the picture, which can affect the quality of details in things like faces. We were looking or this exact effect, so it was great, but it's something to note when buying paper.

love this paper

I love any of the old Fox River Paper Brands. I have been printing on them for years and was very sad those mills were closed. This order was used for Wedding invitations. The paper was perfect for the design created for the customer. I was happy to still find dome available since I do know this is no longer manufactured.
