COLORMATES vs. Colormates Smooth & Silky

If you’re shopping for COLORMATES papers, you’ll almost certainly run across Colormates Smooth & Silky. These two lines of paper may share a name, but for professional printing applications, that’s where the similarities end.

Colormates Smooth & Silky are crafting papers that are available only in cut sizes : 8 ½” x 11” and 12” x 12”. COLORMATES papers, on the other hand, are professional grade printing papers that are also available in folio, digital, and cut sizes.

PAPER PRO TIP: Folio sizes offer commercial and in-plant printers, converters, and brand marketers/designers a number of advantages over cut sizes, including cost savings, reduced waste, and more versatility.
