Paper School

While paper may seem relatively simple, there is a true science to selecting the right paper when developing project specifications. An uninformed decision can result in unhappy clients, unreadable text and unimpressed customers.

At the Clampitt Paper School, attendees learn the basics of paper manufacturing and economics, the differences between coated and uncoated stocks, industry terminology and much more. Classes are provided every quarter and each session lasts only a few hours. (We’ll even provide lunch).

Have you ever seen your sales rep hold paper up to the light? We all do it, in restaurants, stores and your office. Below, students check the formation of uncoated papers. Why? You’ll have to sign up and come to class to find out!

*Our regularly scheduled Paper Knowledge Sessions are designed for working professionals in the graphic design, printing and corporate purchasing arenas. If you’re looking for something tailored to college level students, please contact your local representative.
