Digital printing used to feel like a compromise. Now it’s come of age and spreading its wings. When paired with Carnival + Via papers, digital printing meets combines texture and colour with the ability to meet tighter deadlines, faster turnaround times and smaller runs.
‘This expansion of Carnival + Via papers is the latest expression of our belief that digital printing on fine paper meets the demands designers have for faster timelines and the ever-climbing expectation of beauty supported by function,’ said Chris Harrold, SVP marketing and creative at Mohawk Fine Papers.
The expanded digital offering makes Carnival + Via’s digital vellum portfolio 6 times as large. This line expansion consists of two new sizes (48.26 x 33 + 52.7 x 74.75cm/19 x 13 + 20.75 x 29.4375”), new heavy weights including 120C, and new colours: Bright White, Cream White, Light Grey and Kraft are all welcome natural and neutral additions to Carnival + Via’s existing palette.
