The holidays are over and we’re all trying to get back into our routines. No more of the constant supply of treats in the break room, midafternoon naps and late night Netflix binges! If you are anything like us, one of the first things we do in the new year is tear down that old, tattered, note riddled calendar and replace it with a new one. Although, many of us in the office have digital calendars or analog planners, we all agree that we like having a wall calendar we can use at a glance. There’s something about visually having those blocks of days in front of us to help reference where we are and how much time we have left in a month to help us schedule and plan.
The new 2017 Field Paper calendars are available and tout the theme of “At Your Service”, highlighting 12 ways we go the extra mile for our customers. We teamed up with the fine folks at Webster Design and Regal Print for the the design and printing and they did a bang up job! Check these guys out if you are in the Omaha market.
The celebration of Field Paper’s 100 year anniversary continues with our Thank You Notecard sets. We are big believers in the hand written note and the extra time taken to jot a personal sentiment. In a world cluttered with emails, a hand-addressed card makes a good impression and is always a welcome sight in our mailboxes. Continue reading
There’s no denying that at the heart of paper’s allure is its tactility. The feel of a texture delights the fingertips, sets a tone and enhances a design.

(See Millward Brown Study and Sappi “Neuroscience of Touch” videos to learn more.)
There are many textures available ranging from subtle to pronounced; sophisticated to rough hewn; scratchy to rubbery soft.

You also may want to request a copy of Neenah’s Down & Dirty Print Guide which shows how different textures will affect your printing results. Continue reading

Mohawk is starting off the new year with a boom with the redesign of their Via & Carnival swatchbook. If you recall, a couple of years ago, Mohawk introduced a new slimline swatch format that accordion folded into a 3 x 9 book. However, the format did not prove to be very user-friendly and Mohawk decided to return to the standard 6 x 9 format…plus a little more. This book will definitely stand out on your shelves with it’s two inch, bright, orange spine and weighing in at a whopping two pounds. (We remind you to lift with your legs!) Continue reading
