Design with Some Shine!

Mirri Sparkle is a new product that offers a distinctive 'glitter' texture, that sparkles in the light. The high quality silver metallic film can be laminated to a premium paper for rigid boxes or white backed folding box-board for cartons and POS from 200GSM to 700um to give a quality material with an eye-catching finish. The surface of the film is treatable with UV Litho print, as well as other print finishing options. When you over print on Mirri Sparkle, either through digital or litho means, you can create any colour 'sparkle' you wish. 

With a wide interest from cosmetics packaging, gift packaging and POS markets, Mirri Sparkle offers the visual impact on shelf encouraging consumers to engage and interact with the products.

Amazing Paper Carving Art by Maude White

Maude White is a paper carving artist from Buffalo, NY that uses cutting paper to communicate what her words cannot. Looks like we found someone that loves paper as much as we do. 

I have great respect for paper. When I cut, the thin membranous material reveals its strength to me. No matter how small my cuts the paper holds. There is a certain comfort in that, a comfort I enjoy. I feel that there are very few things in the world as reliable and constant as paper. Paper is everywhere and it has been telling stories for centuries. By respecting and honoring paper for what it is, and not considering it a stepping-stone to something greater, I feel like I am communicating some of the pleasure it brings to me. I am not creating for Art’s sake. I am creating for Paper’s sake, to make visible the stories that every piece of paper attempts to communicate to us.

-Maude White

Maude has an exhibiton at WNYBAC on display through October 10th in New York City. Check out her work here!

Colorplan Swatchbook: A Designers Ultimate Weapon

The effortlessly simple confidence and beauty of the product itself is always prevalent. All the pieces have minimal printing crafted using techniques that are exceptionally gorgeous. From the business card that uses a very traditional piece of craft called paper marquetry to showcase not one or two, but three styles of Colorplan offering at once, the three papers represent three signature aspects of the range: color, weight and embossing.

NEW Mirri Sparkle 

Legion Paper is excited to annouce we now stock Mirri Sparkle, a new product that offers customers a distinctive ‘glitter’ texture that sparkles in the light.

Mirri Sparkle has already received great interest from the high-end packaging and point of sale markets. The unusual film has a glitter texture, providing a tactile experience, as well as a glitter effect with a metallic luster and shimmer. 

When you overprint on Mirri Sparkle, either through digital or litho means, you can create any colour ‘sparkle’ you wish. If you use white ink, it masks the glitter effect, adding more subtlety to the film and design.

Glitter will not come off on your hands nor in your equipment. Most existing "Glitter"-Type papers have rough, "sandpappery" feeling but Mirri Sparkle is fairly smooth. 

“We have had a lot of interest in Mirri Sparkle from a wide range of markets, due to it’s unique glittering shimmer that will create a spectacular sparkle effect for packaging, point of sale, social stationary, craft and many other market places”. 

   -Richard Gillgrass, Managing Director of Celloglas
