Volume 19: Clock Contest

July 2010


Your Time To Shine

Spec + Connect Volume 11 ESSE-OXFORD Clock Contest

It's time to take a closer look at ESSE® and OXFORD® Premium Papers. Our new Striking Every Time promotion contains eight unique clock faces and a great contest that will inspire you to create your own one-of-a-kind clock face. The interchangeable clock faces that come with the promotion showcase a range of printing techniques from four-color process to metallic inks, as well as embossing and die cutting, but the possibilities are endless.

Enter the Your Time To Shine contest by creating your own original clock face using photography, type, illustration, whatever means you choose as long as you use ESSE or OXFORD Papers. Make your selections, request your sample sheets and they will be sent to you free of charge. Instructions for uploading an image of your clock face can be found inside the promotion as well as on the contest website. Additionally the site offers an opportunity to vote for your favorites - including your own - as often as you like!

The five posted clock face designs with the highest number of votes on October 1st, 2010 will win the contest. These winning clock designs will be turned into the newest Neenah Paper iPhone and iPad App.

To get your ESSE and OXFORD Papers Striking Every Time clock kit, contact your Neenah Paper sales representative or your local Neenah Paper distributor. For more details and information about the contest visit www.neenahpaper.com/clockcontest.

Spec + Connect Neenah Packaging ENVIRONMENT Folding Board

Good Things Come in Neenah Packaging

Whether it's a box, bag, wrap, label, or hang tag, finding the right paper for premium packaging is essential. It should be considered upfront as an important part of the design, as well as an opportunity to promote a greener platform. The most recent addition to Neenah's offering of premium packaging papers is the single-ply ENVIRONMENT® Folding Board 100 PC 18pt.

  • This product is preferred for the conversion of folding cartons because it offers greater dimensional stability than laminated covers.
  • Made from 100 percent post consumer fiber content.
  • FSC Certified, Green Seal certified, made 100 percent renewable energy, and made Carbon Neutral.

This high performance smooth finish paperboard with an incredible 92 brightness is the perfect solution for greener premium packaging.


Spec + Connect 2010 HOW Contest Winner

Spec + Connect 2010 HOW Conference

We Got High Marks in Denver at HOW

Another year of being the lead sponsor at the HOW Design Conference gave us the chance to visit with old friends and meet new ones. The conference is a great opportunity for us to take the pulse of the design and paper specifier markets. We listen to attendees, collecting their unique insights. As the longest running continual sponsor of the annual conference, we feel very much at home when we're at HOW. We love it all, from blogging about an informative session here and there to sharing Neenah promotions at our booth in the exhibit hall. But this year we especially loved hosting the closing night White Party in the mile high city with close to 2,000 of our design friends! If you missed it, check out our blog at neenahpaperblog.com. There'll be no stopping you from going to next year's conference.

And ending on a high note, congratulations to the winner of our drawing, Lynnette Pope of Porch Light Studio, Atlanta, GA, who won a round trip ticket on Delta Airlines for anywhere she wants to go in the Continental U.S.
