Red River Arctic Polar Satin & Unibind books

I am using Arctic Polar Satin with the Unibind book system. This makes a very dignified & refined book. The 66 Lb paper gives a substantial look & feel to a book. As I want people and clients to look at one image at a time I just put one image per page. Red River Arctic Polar Satin is the only paper I use for these books.

Superb Greeting Cards

I've been searching for months for white double-sided greeting cards since my original supplier discontinued my previous cards. I'm more than pleased to have discovered the papers of Red River Paper, more especially the 60lb double-sided greeting cards. The cards print true color on my Canon TR7020. The results are fantastic! I live in western Canada and can also vouch for the very good service and delivery from Red River Paper.

This is a sturdy sheet that does a beautiful job on my inkjet printer. I love that it is double sided. I am a graphic designer and I do a lot of double sided work. Great coverage. The printing is so crisp and clear on this sheet. Such an improvement over many paper stocks I've previously tried.

My new go-to greeting card stock

I tried the 60# Polar Matte Double-sided Greeting Card stock instead of my usual Aurora Art White 300. I found the 60# Polar Matte was a significant improvement on my Epson P600 - it fed flawlessly (no need to keep cleaning the rollers) even after several dozen card printings. This is now my go-to greeting card stock going forward. Very, very happy with this.

I use Red River Paper in the junk journals (handmade heirloom books) that I make. The digitals and photographs that I use print beautifully with rich color and an almost satin smooth finish.

Fantastic Art Prints

The double sided Art Matte paper has been wonderful for printing my illustrations. The color pops, and could pass for my original colored pencil and ink work. I really love this option, especially the crisp, smooth look it produces. Thank you!
