  • Paper - A Hitchhiker's guide to the world of print

    Simplicity. That’s what we aim for. Simple descriptions to help make selecting the perfect product a breeze.

  • 2 white business cards out-lined in blue. The left card contains a square in the upper left and copy 'Name here, Job title here' on the right. The other card contains a large upward facing arrow within a circle. It represents the first step when ordering with Hatch: select your product.

    150gsm Recycled Silk

    Skinny mini

    This paper is made from 150gsm stock, it comes from recycled things like… That birthday card your never wanted. – It’s basically thicker than a letterhead, but thinner than a postcard. Think of the Papa Johns take away leaflet you get through your door but slightly thicker (maybe papa should of come to us). The silk finish means a light coating is applied directly to the paper which protects the paper and ensures colours in your design are bright and eye-catching with a smooth to the touch feel.

    This is perfect for hand outs or something that’s going to be folded.

    Great for any size flyer, including A5 flyers, for example. Or paper aeroplanes, but make sure you recycled them after!

    I am also fully recyclable.

    250gsm Recycled Silk

    Somewhat the middle man but, never put baby in the corner.

    This paper is on the cusp of being a card, technically it is but us at Hatch like to play it cool and treat our 250gsm Recycled silk as a super thick paper.

    To get an idea of its thickness… Think of a cheap valentines card from the petrol station and you are pretty much there. Its perfect for handouts, great for being folded but don’t use it for menus, postcards or… a valentines day card.

    This paper is made from recycled elements, unwanted Christmas cards, dreaded bank statements and other printers unwanted sample packs :) (cheeky)

    I am also fully recyclable.

    350gsm Recycled Silk

    Strong,smooth and…. single?

    Let us introduce you to our heavy weight.

    This stock is 350gsm in weight. If you aren’t a paper sales person that will mean nothing so.. let us explain.

    This recycled card is thicker than an average postcard but, slightly thinner than our standard business card. The smooth silky finish that makes colours ultra-bright but not too shiny, its perfect to make your design ‘pop’, even on the smaller sizes like A7 flyers.

    We think this is perfect for menus, postcards, invites and folded price lists. If you really want to add that ooh lala effect add a lamination to each side. This will make the card even thicker and give it a really really really nice feel when you touch it.

    This card comes from sustainable and recycled sources.

    I am also fully recyclable.

    280gsm Seeded

    Plantable flyers... Yes, you can plant them!

    This eco-friendly paper has seeds in it – not kidding! More than environmentally-friendly and fully compostable, this paper is plantable and your marketing flyers could become a beautiful bed of flowers.

    With 280gsm thickness, it’s similar to a greetings card as the seeds add a bulkiness to the card which makes it ideal for flyers and invitations. Get it printed using Hatch’s vegan processes, for full colour, single or double sided, attention-grabbing flyers.

    This paper is hand made and hand printed so just like mother nature herself these flyers aren't always perfect and can have a little movement when printed and can be a tiny bit bigger or smaller due to the nature of production.

    Wedding invites look awesome… you’ve been told.

    140gsm Pulp

    A eco uncoated paper made from recycled materials

    This is an eco-friendly paper which has an eco-friendly look. It has no coating on the surface so, misses out a process in the paper production cycle. This results in the paper having a slightly rough feel to it. The same sort of feel you would have on a really posh letter…

    This card is created with recycled materials… School reports and post it notes . Its thickness is similar to a bank statement.

    Remember solid colours won't look as vibrant on this stock as they sink into the uncoated surface giving it that ‘recycled looked.

    At roughly 140gsm this paper is great for handouts and folded leaflets.

    I am also fully recyclable.
