British papermaker James Cropper recently showcased several new products and services at the Paperworld trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany.  Offerings on display at the exhibition, which took place from January 28-31, 2017, included the company’s new Tailor Made service, its new range of food contact-approved papers, and its Kendal Manilla collection.

Tailor Made was launched to allow brands to work with James Cropper to develop unique, custom-made paper solutions for brand presentation and packaging. The extensive variables available through the service range from the individual fibers used to make paper to the ways they’re engineered, colored, embossed, and converted.

Andy Smith, director of export sales at James Cropper, said that "we’ve always worked with brands to create personalised solutions for them but now, with Tailor Made, we’re taking this service to the next level.

"It’s absolutely vital for brands to stand out, and a lot of that comes down to expressing their individuality through the materials they use, whether that be the use of post-consumer waste in production to champion sustainability, or using unique shades of soft-touch papers to evoke sophistication."

Meanwhile, Dolcelicious, a range of premium food contact-approved paper, has been developed to help food and drink brands elevate the packaging experience and is suitable for contact with dry, moist and fatty foodstuffs. The range is available in 11 colors, including lemon drizzle, liquorice, silver spoon, and kiwi fizz.

Norbert Spiegel, sales manager for the DACH region, added that "with the launch of the Dolcelicious collection, we have another string to our bow. We’re now able to widen our service to German brands in the food and drink industry, allowing them to benefit from the range’s diverse colors and textures, from subtle and natural to glamorous and bold."

In addition, James Cropper will feature Kendal Manilla, the papermaker’s range of high-quality boards established as a benchmark for outstanding performance within the filing and stationery markets.

Norbert added that "Kendal Manilla is one of our core ranges of papers and has been a go-to product for business folders and files for many years. With its versatility and wide range of weights and colors, we were thrilled to bring this stationery stalwart to Paperworld."
