New board swatch - and it fits in to your Warren swatch holder/desk tidy too

4th January 2018

We're pleased to announce the launch of our new board swatch; a superb range of 22 products from the world's leading mills- folding box boards, white lined chipboards, solid bleached sulphate boards, lined and unlined grades and speciality boards. All are PEFC, FSC Chain of Custody or Recycled with the exception of airfreshener and beermat boards.

We firmly believe we have the most comprehensive range in the trade and we’re confident we have the product to suit the most demanding of print jobs, and coupled with a service level second-to-none and instant real-time stock information we are ideally positioned to be your go-to supplier of choice.

Commenting on the launch of the new board swatch, our MD, Kieran said, “Given the increasing demand for high quality graphical and carton boards in the commercial print sector, we’ve updated our product swatch to give our growing customer base a simple tool to allow them to identify the right product for their jobs. The design chosen allows us to not only highlight an individual product’s suitability for print but also to demonstrate its own unique surface characteristics. This, combined with information on stock service, provides our customers with a simple yet functional and informative tool.”

Our mascot Starsky has become a permanent fixture in our branding and as you would probably expect, the dapper little rabbit features prominently on the new swatch-making it instantly recognisable. We kept the swatch the same size as the previous one so if you’re lucky enough to still have a Warren swatch holder/desk tidy from the last time we produced a swatch-you can replace the old swatch with your brand new one.

The 140mm by 90mm swatch cover was printed on Ensocoat 415 ums/330gsm on a Komori Lithrone 28, using a four colour process with gloss lamination. The heavier weight samples in the swatch were litho printed on a Heidelberg CD 102 using a four colour process and water-based coating. The other samples were printed on a Komori Lithrone 28 using a four colour process and seal varnish.

Swatches and samples of all paper products are also available on request.
