WOODEN YOU KNOW IT? | Invitation with wood paper from KW Doggett

To celebrate the wonderful, Wood FX Birch, a KW Doggett stock that is really rustling the leaves of the design community, we recently got to do one of our favourite things – collaborate!

Our brief from KW Doggett was “wood” and – wooden you know it? – we had some bright ideas about what we could do with that!

Wood FX Birch is real wood that prints just like paper and has a white reverse. It’s a beautiful, printable wood veneer that lends itself to everything from eco business, vintage-themed projects, to outdoor weddings, and flexible enough for presentation folders, business cards, menus, and, of course, invitations.

We foiled stamped the names on the wooden front in a gunmetal foil. Then, we mounted the reverse of the card to cotton stock and letterpress printed it. The bride and groom used the same front mounted to black white paper for their thank you cards.

Woof FX is a unique and versatile stock, that can be letterpressed. It comes in both Birch (used for this project) and Cherry. We don’t want to get sappy (get it?) but we’re pretty excited about this innovation, that brings a lot of personality to print, and we can’t wait to work with more of it.

Talk to us about how it can be used in your next creative project. We wood love to work with you on something amazing!

COTTON ON TO GMUND COTTON – 100% LUXE FROM BJ BALL

Watermarx have teamed up with BJ Ball again to produce a beautiful sample set of GMUND Cotton stock.  It includes a box, a swing tag and a business card, showcasing how well this luxury paper stock lends itself to foil-stamped letterpress, blind emboss and deboss embellishments. If you haven’t seen it yet, get in touch with your rep at BJ Ball!

In the interview below, we spoke to our friend, Tony Betrand, the National Sales and Marketing Manager, about the success of this project.

WMX: So, what’s the story behind this collaboration?

TB: GMUND Cotton is unmatched in the Australian marketplace and therefore we needed to work with a partner that was equally as passionate about the product. Watermarx was a logical partner as the work they do is of equally high standard.

What should designers know about this GMUND range?

GMUND Cotton IS 100% cotton – beware of imitations!

The luxury feel of GMUND Cotton is truly unique and the print quality outstanding. It’s the only cotton product recommended for offset printing as well as dry toner digital, letterpress, hot foil stamping and embossing.

There is no question that GMUND make amazing quality products and their Cotton stock is no exception. It’s s available in 7 colours and 4 weights (110gsm, 300gsm, 450gsm and 600gsm). Foil stamping comes up superbly, as you can see in the sample set created by Watermarx, and designers (and their clients) will love the end result.

Plus, it’s widely available across Australia through BJ Ball.

Why did you choose Watermarx to help with this project?

We have collaborated with Watermarx in the past and find that working with Ange and Al is always such a great experience. The technical experience that Al brings to the project is extremely valuable and the attention to detail is what makes Watermarx the outstanding letterpress printer that they are.

 

BJ Ball have GMUND swatches and our wonderful GMUND promotion pieces available for those interested in using the product. Just email info@bjball.com.au and they will bring it out to you.
