DODONotes blends old school note taking with the ease of new technology. Dodonotebooks feature a diecut groove on the cover which will hold your phone with a strap for extra security. Inside you will find beautiful Mohawk Superfine paper to jot down notes.
Mohawk Papers launches a new campaign which asks ‘What will you make today?’ .
Designer Massimo Vignelli explains how he makes a book. As part of his design process, Vignelli will sketch out a book’s content onto sheets of paper which overlay the grid – drawing each page in pencil, even the contents of every photograph.
His discussion of – and reverence for – the grid has been turned into an animated video by Pentagram.
Often we hear and think that every grade of paper should contain recycled fiber. That this is the most environmentally approach. This may not be the case when we look at the science which is what Sappi Fine Paper did.
There is more to using recycled fiber than the amount of paper being recycled. To use recycled fiber in paper products different processing techniques such as de-inking and bleaching need to be done to the fiber. These techniques have an impact on the enviroment. To create a “higher quality” product there is more processing required for using the recycled fiber.
For example, to use fiber in coated graphics applications the fiber must be deinked and bleached, which requires high levels of electrical energy as well as bleaching chemicals and results in a lower yield (more waste).
On the other hand, recycled fiber can be used in applications like egg cartons, paper board packaging (e.g., cereal boxes) or paper towels typically without requiring deinking or bleaching—a better use for recycled fiber.

Curious Matter, by French manufacturer Arjowiggins, uses microscopic spheres of raw starch, a by-product of food manufacturing, to coat ordinary paper.
The result is a textured product which is a curious cross between sand and silk.
In an interview with printweek Antalis marketing manager Natalie Thomas said:
“It looks really rough but when you touch it, it is both smooth and grainy. It’s different, it’s always great when you get a new product that’s got a story about it. There’s nothing quite like it in the market.”
The paper comes in seven colours, all named after potatoes, such as Desiree Red and Purple Majesty and four weights – 125, 135, 270 and 380gsm
To express the new papers’ creative potential, Arjowiggins Creative Papers has embarked on an adventurous artistic collaboration with designer Gary Card.
