About French Paper

French Paper is a specialized paper mill with an enormous ability to produce paper in rich colors, nuanced textures, plus a variety of weights and sizes. Recognized for its highly reputable brands including signature Speckletone, our innovative spirit and respect for the craft has delighted customers producing art & design, print, packaging and specialty applications for colored paper.

All French papers are made using 100% renewable electricity generated by an on-site hydroelectric plant along with responsibly-sourced fiber and colorants.

French’s colored papers and cardstock are used in corporate brochures, pocket folders, boxes, business cards, hang tags, scrapbooks, corporate identity programs, shopping bags, invitations, personal stationery, posters, labels, packaging, greeting cards and point-of-purchase advertising.
