Introducing Strathmore Impress

2017 marks the 125th anniversary of Strathmore. To celebrate, we thought it would be fitting to craft a new paper which simultaneously honors the heritage of Strathmore and the innovative spirit of Mohawk: Strathmore Impress.

We all have an idea on the back-burner that’s so niche, indulgent or impractical that we just can’t justify it. Now imagine you didn’t have to. Introducing #TheMohawkShow: The awards that give back making.
.
The Mohawk Show invites you to submit print projects throughout 2019 for review by a panel of six judges from differing design disciplines. The awards? Seven unique “Maker Grants” that offer the winning designers an opportunity to make a print project that may have otherwise felt out-of-reach.
.
The Mohawk Show will be open for submissions on Monday, April 15th! Click the link in our bio for more info and stay tuned for other announcements surrounding the show throughout 2019.

Is it possible to fall in love with paper + print?

@theicondesign was tasked to create a visual identity system for Georgia’s historic South Downtown Atlanta. "We wanted to create a piece that somehow captured the idea of many layers — of history, of the diversity of industry, of culture — and decided that paper could play a leading role in delivering this concept,” said ICON.

Boy...were they right.

When a project calls for print that needs to hold up under tough conditions, consider Mohawk Synthetics. Here’s an example of our new Performance Polyester with Cobalt Bright Yellow printed with CMYK and white ink.

Print Tip: When printing a CMYK image on color, use a white underbase first.

Frost may be right, but for #WorldPoetryDay we wanted to feature some poetry translated and printed by nonprofit @uglyducklingpresse whose beauty is not lost on us. 
This series demonstrates poetry’s ability to transcend language and the power of making paper part of the picture in publishing. The covers are printed on Mohawk Via Vellum Sunflower with only red and black ink and depending on which way the books are flipped, present the reader with a version of these poems in their native tongue or in an English translation.
