What is Pick 'n' Mix?
Pick 'n' Mix gives you the flexibility to fill a box with up to 5 products from our wide range of colours, weights and textures.

What are your Special Offers?
From time to time we are able to offer products at exceptional prices. The quality of such products is exactly the same as those in our Pick 'n' Mix range - the great price is possible usually because we want to make space in our warehouse!

What are your Limited Editions?
For some of our clients our speciality paper mill will make one offs and rarely repeated products. Occasionally we can make some of these products available to you. These products will be more expensive then our normal offerings, however you can be assured that you will be purchasing paper which is truly distinctive.

Do you always stock the same colours?
Within the Pick 'n' Mix palette we do hold a range of colours that we continuously stock.
However some shades within the range do change, reflecting the colours that are being manufactured by the mill. We therefore cannot guarantee that we will always be able to supply these particular shades. It is important to remember to buy sufficient quantities for your project needs.
For further information concerning stock please contact us and we'll be happy to advise.
