Paper Stock Identification
0

So as much as we all love identifying type I was hoping someone would be able to help me out and tell me about the paper stock used here: http://img158.yfrog.com/img158/1065/6gkv.jpg.

Really any information would help. Who makes it or something like it....even if you just know what that kind of paper is called so I can figure out what to search for.

Thanks!

Non-paper comment: If it's the edge color you're after, that might actually be a printing technique.
See this example here: http://typophile.com/node/61540#comment-378043

You should email Frank and ask him directly. He's very friendly. http://profile.frankchimero.com/

It looks like it was printed on a letterpress, hence the 3D look of the type.

I would show it to a printer or a paper sales person, or go through their samples.

Yeah it's definitely letter press. According to his twitter it was done by Mandate Press so maybe they could help, but yeah specifically I was referring to the edge color. Perhaps I'll shoot him an email. Thanks again for the help.

The 3D look looks nice.
