Kettle's Yard Paper
Cambridge Imprint is a small paper-making business in Cambridge, England, designing and printing patterned paper. It is known for beautiful colours, joyful illustration and typography, a lively, hand-drawn aesthetic, and meticulous attention to detail.
Using simple hand-stencilled screen-printing to create original designs, Cambridge Imprint employ spot-colour lithography to replicate the studio process in manufacturing the final paper product. The result is a matte paper of unparalleled intensity and clarity of colour, not to mention quality!
Kettle’s Yard House and Gallery is our favourite place in Cambridge. Both were closed to the public for several years while the Gallery underwent an ambitious extension and the house some much needed maintenance. They reopened in February 2018. Cambridge Imprint were asked to create a Kettle’s Yard pattern for the launch of the remodelled space. This original design was inspired by the shapes and rhythms in the work of Barbara Hepworth and the colours by the Hepworth and Nicholson fabrics in the Kettle’s Yard collection.
Cambridge Imprint paper is printed in England on FSC paper of archiving quality, using vegetable oil-based inks that are kind to the environment. Each sheet is printed in one or two hand-mixed inks on uncoated 90 gsm stock to create a high-quality matte paper with a hand-printed feel.
Each sheet measures 50 cm x 70 cm.
