This pieces features an uncoated sheet with a “coated like” surface making for a masterful look–along with the eye-catching die cut edges and cross-overs, this is one of our favorite!
In 1995, Mohawk cracked the code on how to make beautiful uncoated paper perform like coated paper, using a surface treatment named Inxwell. Today, as Inxwell quietly celebrates its 20th anniversary, we look back at how Inxwell papers – Options and Navajo – were first introduced, and how they continue today to provide designers and printers all the benefits of sharp, saturated color without sacrificing the aesthetic beauty of fine, uncoated papers.
An Exclusive Papermaking Process
Inxwell is Mohawk’s exclusive surface technology that combines the tactile feel of uncoated paper with the advantages of superior ink holdout, lower dot gain, and significantly increased opacity.
Mohawk’s Inxwell papers, Mohawk Options and Navajo, feature six premium white shades and three distinct finishes to complement a range of styles. Within the line there are three 100% PCW choices, and the entire line is FSC certified and made with windpower for print projects that call for an environmentally friendly paper.
Mohawk first introduced Options featuring Inxwell in December of 1995 through a high-profile partnership with MTV, which resulted in a limited-edition collector’s book titled “MTV Unplugged, First Edition.”
