Designers’ Online Resource And Paper Tips
Domtar, Palo Alto, Calif., launched a dedicated Web site to meet designer’s needs for an inspirational and informative online resource. The Domtar Designer Corner (at www.domtardesignercorner.com) has been created by designers for designers, and offers industry news and events, designer profiles, eco-smart design options and tips for selecting the best paper to bring designs to life. PaperSpecs—an online provider of paper knowledge to the design and print industries, and host of a database featuring more than 4,200 papers from 65 mills and manufacturers—will support the site with an exclusive series of Tips on Paper articles, which can be accessed from the landing page.
“With the launch of the new Domtar Designer Corner, we are once again demonstrating our commitment to respond to our customers’ needs by developing innovative resources that enhance and facilitate their work,” said Tewfik Atia, marketing communication manager for Domtar’s EarthChoice line of environmentally responsible papers. “Choosing the right paper is usually the first crucial step in creating an outstanding piece, which is why we’ve gathered tips from industry experts and provide designers with creative materials.”
In addition, the PaperSpecs Website (at www.paperspecs.com) also offers tips on paper buying and a free weekly newsletter. For members, PaperSpecs also offers an online catalog of the most recently released swatch books. Using the PaperSpecs’ service, members are shown how to order the complimentary swatch books directly from the mills. PaperSpecs also assists in assembling samples and swatch books for client projects, and members gain valuable insight in paper specifying and print buying issues.
