Indie Handmade

Each sheet of paper is individually made by hand from 100% recycled cotton rag. It's acid free, chlorine free, bleach free and archival. Indie Handmade is made in India to our custom size specifications to fit Peterkin envelopes.

Colours and Weights available

Lily White and Kohl in 300gsm.

Please note there may be colour variations from batch to batch and whilst we will do our best to pick your order from the same colour batch, we can't guarantee it. Please order your entire job at the same time to best avoid colour batch variance.

Please note Kohl is available to order as an unprinted product only.

Surface

She tends to be a bit 'bumpy' our Indie and although print testing is recommended for all methods, we've personally printed using home ink-jet, letterpress, hot foil stamping and commercial digital press with varied results depending on the batch. For best results however, we recommend Peterkin print for you using our commercial printing presses.

Peterkin Printery suitability/availability

Indie Handmade Design Guidelines

Scoring: please note we cannot score Indie Handmade as the deckled edges means it won't feed through our machine. If you wish to score it yourself you can do so with a bone scorer or similar.

Every card and paper stock we sell has been tested for its printing suitability on Peterkin’s in-house digital printers and Heidelberg commercial presses. This means that if we offer printing on a particular stock, you’re covered by the Peterkin Printery Guarantee.

Printing this paper or card with other commercial or domestic digital print machines

If you choose to purchase our paper or card stocks to print elsewhere, we cannot guarantee the printed results. Paper is a natural, delicate product which will always vary slightly batch to batch and every printer/press is different. Many 'home' printers aren’t suitable for printing on textured stocks or thicker than 120gsm, so we strongly recommend test printing first.

Sheet sizes

A3, A4, A5, 120x180mm, A6, 99x210mm, 65x90mm.
Size variation is +/- 5mm from sheet to sheet.
