>> It’s time for creative directors and brand owners to rediscover the power of paper!

Antalis launches the Papercard campaign to showcase the work of 12 international artists with 12 different papers and printing techniques over 12 months.

The Papercards mailing campaign is the first milestone in the Antalis Creative Power initiative and targets 15,000 creative, marketing and communications professionals around the world. These professionals typically decorate their walls and desks with funny, surprising or offbeat photos, posters and illustrations that have captured their imagination or whose artistic originality they appreciate. With the Papercards campaign, Antalis is inviting itself onto their walls, or rather 12 illustrators, photographers, designers... Twelve Papercards will be sent every month on a different creative paper, using a different printing technique to clearly show how the right choice of paper can enhance the work of each of these artists.   
This papercard showcases the work of Linda Linko, a Finnish graphic designer and illustrator who lives in Helsinki. Linda worked in agencies for a number of years before going freelance. Her work is at the boundary of illustration and typography. Her typos are hand-drawn which gives them a unique, delicate touch of humour. Conqueror Wove Calligraphy 300g seemed the obvious choice to present her work. It is soft to the touch, prints perfectly and the depth of its black makes the white of Linda’s typos burst off the page thanks to two hits of silk screen solid white. But the white Conqueror papers would work just as well with her colour illustrations!





>> Conqueror book

“Every brand has a story. It’s how you tell it that sets you apart. The paper you choose expresses your values and forms part of your identity. And that’s why, when the world’s leading brands need to tell their story, they trust Conqueror. It says who you are.”

Conqueror has been helping brands tell their stories for over 125 years. Originally created as the first premium machine-produced writing paper it has developed over time to become the choice for high quality printed communications, and the trusted partner of brands that demand the best - from aspiring companies to the world’s leading organisations.

Now Conqueror is telling its own story in a 180 page hardback book. Beginning with Conqueror’s heritage and uncompromising standards of paper-making, the book tells the story of three high quality brands who have used Conqueror for their own brand identity.

The story unfolds through a chapter of highly crafted print finishing techniques, demonstrating the breadth of the range and its versatility for the full spectrum of print and finishing processes. Featuring 60 different papers the book provides an opportunity to explore the range: the whites and creams, textures and grammages which have made the collection the reference for designers, printers and end-users. It also features the original ‘Conqueror London’ watermark which has been recrafted and is once again available as a Limited Edition.

The book encapsulates the principles and qualities of a paper created for the highest quality print communications. It portrays a paper collection with a rich heritage and a tradition of innovation and through its design it projects a modern brand which is relevant to contemporary communications.
