When thinking about marketing, your clients may think perfect messaging, vibrant colors and beautiful design. Many times the paper it's printed on is forgotten or neglected leaving a final appearance that is less than desired. Paper with texture evokes emotions and feelings. Running your finger down a linen paper, brings about feelings of precision, grids, repetition.
