The medium is the message

Even though the world's shifted to all things digital, global paper use has increased 400% in the last 40 years. This has a huge environmental impact: the pulp and paper industry is the fifth largest consumer of energy, accounting for 4% of all the world’s energy use. To minimise our footprint, we only use papers that are made with the planet in mind – because we give a damn.

Munken Pure & Polar

We use Munken's Pure and Polar paper stocks for our inner pages and for our covers. This is an uncoated silky-smooth paper that is wonderful for writing and drawing, and delivers excellent image print quality. Munken papers are made in Sweden at one of the most environmentally-friendly paper mills in the world, and are both FSC and PEFC certified.

Neenah Desert Storm

An elevated take on the classic kraft paper, Neenah's Desert Storm is a smooth, durable paper that we use for our kraft covers. This paper features more sustainability badges than any respectable writer should try to fit in one sentence: Desert Storm is FSC® Certified, Green-e Certified, Green Seal™ Certified, is made with 30% or more recycled fibre, and is manufactured using wind power.

There's more

We also have a range of other paper stocks available upon request – all of which are also from sustainable sources. Get in touch to find out what's available. We have paper made from crushed stone instead of wood, and paper made from recycled beer labels, and even paper that looks like leather – if that's what you're into.
