Arjo Wiggins adds ultra matt paper

Arjo Wiggins has added a new Ultra Matt print finish to its Rives-Sensation range of creative papers. Sensation Matt, which can be printed up to a resolution of 225 dpi, is available in two finishes (Tradition or Tactile) with a selection of high white or natural white.

Emma Oliver, Creative Papers product manager at Antalis, says that there is increased demand for matt-based creative papers in all sectors, adding: “This latest edition of Sensation Matt to the Rives Sensation range provides a highly technical creative paper that delivers an ultra-matt product that is perfect for solid colour printing and skin tone rendering.”

The company has also created a swatchbook of printed samples, case study applications and testimonials, dedicated to showcasing how the introduction of Sensation Matt can add significantly to the overall look and feel of the printed piece. You can get a copy by calling Antalis, which distributes these papers in the UK, on 0870 607 9014 or from

In addition, the whole Rives-Sensation range of papers are now all available in a heavier weighted 350 grammage, as well as the existing 120, 170 and 270gsm weights. Arjo Wiggins says that they are particularly well suited for all applications requiring impeccable print quality with a natural touch, especially for the reproduction of natural shades, skin tones and homogenous solid colours.
