Our silver paper was a mistake.
We were meant to get our usual kraft but instead got kraft with laminated silver foil on the inside. For years it sat in our studio.
We did try and make a sample laptop sleeve with it and it worked but it was so bright it hurt our eyes.
Until one day I decided to use it.
Everybody loved it and I started to wonder if perhaps I had overlooked this gem? As time passed the paper crackled and the high sheen of the silver settled into a matt silver and I started to love it.
Recently we discovered a new reason to love the silver foiled kraft, originally used to wrap butter blocks. It’s foiled surface stops digital pick-pocketers from getting the information off your cards with RFID blocking properties. Now you have to love it!
