Paper of the Week: Stardream Quartz Metallic
When I was in Dallas recently, I visited the ceiling installation that Paper For Water created for the Crow Asian Art Museum. They used this Stardream Quartz Metallic paper, which comes in 16 iridescent colors in both text and cover weights. Paper For Water volunteers folded more than 200 of these floral elements designed by Ekaterina Lukasheva. It’s a striking installation.
The stardream paper is a medium weight, flexible 81 lb text. Quartz is an elegant, soft shade of white with a shimmer, and a pearlized finish on both sides. This paper can be printed with a laser printer or with conventional methods such as foil stamping and offset. Stardream paper is great for high end invitations, stationery, and packaging. Matching card stock & envelopes are available in a variety of sizes.
