So You Want To Create A Paper?
Something special, something new, something you can call your own. A particular size. An extraordinary color. A singular weight. An exceptional finish. A specific application.
Legion Paper believes that everything we create should satisfy an exacting standard of both quality and utility before being offered to you.
In reaching this standard, we’ll work together so that your needs are carefully studied and reliably identified. Then we select one or more of our mills to work with to carefully design and manufacture to satisfy those needs.
We know the capabilities of each and every one of our 60+ mills and know what can and cannot be done in the world of paper. Because we’re not limited to any one mill, we select a mill partner to meet your needs (instead of trying to fit your needs into the capabilities of a particular mill.)
All mills are not created equal. All paper machines will not produce the same results. All have advantages and disadvantages. A fourdrinier machine will not produce the same paper as a cylinder mould machine. Both have limitations. Both have strengths. Translucent paper? There are only four machines in the world that can make it. And we know where they are. Handmade paper? It takes a village. And we know where they are, too.
Because of our buying power with our mills, our expertise in sourcing and experience creating papers we can almost certainly find the best fit and save you money (and headaches) in the process.
The Truth Is In The Details
Let’s get started making paper for you. How are you going to use this paper? What size will it be? What color? Deckled? Trimmed? What is it made from? How much do you need? Color? Finish? Embossed? Coated? Grain direction? Watermark? Textured or smooth? What weight? Handmade, Mouldmade, or Machine Made? What size? What’s your budget? And you need this when?
Over the years, we’ve made hundreds of papers for seemingly every category of client. From small letterpress shops to large fashion houses; from world renowned artists to ad agencies; from large inkjet printer manufacturers to fine stationers. There’s little you can ask for that would surprise us.
