Stone Paper

Stone paper is a great choice, both from the user experience point of view as well as from an environmental standpoint. It is simply a perfect win-win product.

Stone paper is a great invention - environmentally friendly while at the same time providing an enhanced paper experience. Stone paper feels a bit like eggshells to the touch, and it is both water and greaseproof as well as resistant to tearing. It will give you no paper cut and still it is possible to fold so you can keep making paper planes whenever you feel like it. 

Stone paper is naturally white and therefore needs no bleach when manufactured. It is bright and since it is resistant to grease and smear, you will never have any coffee stains in your notebooks.

Brief history Stone Paper

Stone paper was first produced in Taiwan in the late 1990s. It has been used as a coating film in, for example, the food industries for a long time, but lately, end-customer applications have popped up. Its unique set of characteristics makes it a great choice for anybody who uses pulp paper today.

Our process and paper

Stone paper is made from leftovers from construction sites, such as limestone and marble. The stone is crushed to a fine powder which is then mixed with a non-toxic and recycled high-density polyethylene, forming the paper. No acids, water or bleach are used in the process and the power needed for the process is produced by solar panels on the plant.

Common questions

There are a lot of questions about stone paper, and to increase the knowledge about the great product, we will answer some of them here:

Benefits of Stone Paper

Stone paper carries a lot of benefits compared to regular pulp paper. 

First and foremost, the environmental impact when producing the stone paper is a lot smaller compared to pulp paper. No water nor any chemicals are needed to provide stone paper with its unique set of characteristics. 

Then there is the other side of it - the user experience. Stone paper is soft to the touch and does not give any paper cuts. Your pen will glide over the stone paper frictionless as there are no grains. Because of the texture, stone paper holds ink perfectly and does not bleed through, making it a great choice for those who prefer fountain pens.

Disadvantages with Stone Paper

The only disadvantage that we can think of when it comes to stone paper is the price - it is a bit more expensive to buy than pulp paper. On the other hand, even if the price is higher right now, the environmental benefits from choosing stone paper may well make up for it in the long run.

Stone Paper applications

Stone Paper can be used for anything that you would use pulp paper for. Some examples are:

Final words

Stone paper is a great choice, both from the user experience point of view as well as from an environmental standpoint. It is simply a perfect win-win product.
