Nant Designs
Paper
Every sheet of Nant Designs paper is individually printed by hand using a silkscreen in my own workshop.
 
I print each design on 135/140grsm paper in short print runs and multiple colourways. Some prints have just one colour but others have up to four layers of ink. Each layer of ink is printed separately and may be opaque, metallic or transparent creating multicoloured mixes of colours.
 
I designed these papers to bind my own books but they are suitable for multiple craft uses.
