Trade Secret

If you think Crane’s Lettra is the softest, cushiest paper out there that will take the best letterpress impression you are mistaken. These duplexed — 2-ply for industry terms — rolls from Angel Soft are. Not only are they the softest, cushiest paper your hands or tush will ever feel but the way they capture a blind letterpress impression is absolutely stunning, leaving deep debossing, perfect for capturing all the remnants of your business.

Project Description

The new Angel Soft bath tissue paper rolls are now the thickest ever. Angel soft continues to bring you the ideal balance of softness and strength at a great value.

Production Lesson(s)

The paper is so soft that it's really hard to make an actual impression. I mean, can you imagine trying to blind-letterpress a cloud?! That's what this is like. We developed a proprietary polymer plate out of cherub skin — another project altogether! — that makes just the right impression. ”
