Summer is Here and so is Keaykolour—
Our Newest Line of Colored Paper

43 Colors. 2 Weights. 1 Finish. Stocked and ready to ship.

We’re celebrating the arrival of Summer with a new, colorful and fun product: Keaykolour.

Using colored paper has never been so easy and fun. Simply choose from 43 fresh colors in text or cover weight, we will pack it and have it on your doorstep in just a few days. And with low minimums and an amazing color palette, Keaykolour is right for just about any kind of project.

We will spend a majority of the time discussing Makers Quarterly for both production and trends to give some education and inspiration.


About Hope:

“I love my job!” exclaims Hope Sowders pretty much every day of the week.  As Business Development for Mohawk Fine Papers, she consults with end-users, creatives and printers to get brands noticed by using print along with digital forms of communication.  Covering many different industries, Hope has worked with brands like Mazda, Audi, Porsche, Blanton’s, The Slate Collection, RJ Reynolds, St. Elizabeth Hospital, University of Cincinnati, Maverick (can’t leave out the chocolate)… and that was just last year.  In her spare time she loves all things DIY and no project seems to scare her.  She can often be found tasting food at the newest local farm-to-table restaurant, walking her dog (with whom she is totally obsessed) or working on the 1899 house she is rehabbing with her sister.
