When you think of color, do you dream? The exterior of the hypnotic black and white Tool Kit is like a message in a designer bottle – it sends a color-starved SOS to "open it up" and see what's in there. Neatly organized is an array of materials that highlight the papers, finishes, and colors that are all common in the new CLASSIC paper line. Handy survival tools include a large color swatch book with a sample of all 10 colors and finishes to dazzle clients, a sheet-cut calculator to help you determine the ideal paper size and avoid waste, and a trusty envelope specifier to find the perfect carrier for your next project.
So what can you really do with just 10 colors?But wait, there's more. Packed inside the tool kit is a quick-mix fan swatch that has the Perfect 10 core colors, along with their supporting castaways. Showing some true survival skills, we used the same five paper color combinations and applied them to a portfolio of samples using a multitude of printing and finishing techniques. They range from hotel stationery to a museum brochure -- all were a figment of our imagination, but clearly not a mirage.
Directions? Who needs directions?!Yes – we've included very detailed directions, tips, and diagrams on how to use the kit. But this is no color-coded scavenger hunt. It's natural selection for creatives. Catch one if you can – visit www.neenahpaper.com or call your local rep; and hurry.
