Featured Paper Mill Brand: JAZZ

When you need to add a little extra luster to your paper projects, JAZZ papers are the natural choice. These impactful papers are available in a variety of finishes, shades, weights, and sizes to suit any project.

A private brand paper made by The Paper Mill Store, the JAZZ line of papers was created because we found that mill-packaged sizes and quantities did not always correspond with what our customers needed. By offering similar items in smaller package quantities and ready-to-use sheet sizes, we are able to provide you with the paper you need without the added expense or hassle of cutting paper down to size.

Available in bold hues and a range of shiny to sheer finishes, JAZZ is a fun line of papers and card stocks well-suited to a variety of creative projects. Let’s take a look at what they have to offer:

Mirror Finish

With a finish so shiny you can see your reflection in it, this beautiful single-sided metallic foil cardstock is available in two shades everyone wishes for: silver and gold. At 12 x 12 inches and a weight of 10 pt cover, these sheets are big and sturdy enough to use as a page in your scrapbook, but versatile enough to be used to make decorations and other crafts. A popular holiday pick because of their shine, the uncoated plain white side also makes these papers ideal for cardmaking.

Here are some tips for working with JAZZ Mirror Finish card stocks:

  • Due to their overprint varnish, these papers are totally nonabsorbent on their foil side, meaning that they can’t be written on using pencils or most pens. They are guaranteed for offset printing.
  • Their plain white side is recommended for normal printing.
  • These papers can be cut, scored, perforated and hole-drilled carefully at home or using our finishing services.

JAZZ High Gloss papers bring the shine with a gloriously glossy finish. They can be printed on, but the high gloss finish is approved for offset printing only.

Available in a variety of shades that seriously pop, they also make beautiful bookmarks and accents in craft, art, or paper projects. They can also be cut, scored, perforated, and hole-drilled carefully at home or using our finishing services.

Translucent Vellum Inkjet

Made by a family-owned paper mill in Europe who has been making fine papers for generations, the JAZZ Translucent Vellum Inkjet is a high quality paper that boasts a frosty looking cloudless fiber formation. Translucent enough to read through and trace on, these vellum sheets are perfect for layering, and thanks to its uniform smoothness, it can be used on either side. JAZZ Translucent Vellum Inkjet is approved for laser, offset, and—you guessed it—inkjet printing, and can be written on using almost any writing utensil.
