    A pat on the back for you and your team - please pass this on to your team for me….

    I wanted to send you a quick email to thank you and your team for doing a quick turn around for me on my order. I needed it urgently, and your friendly and helpfulness - plus of course your efficiency resulted in me being more than satisfied. I will definitely be using you again in the future.

    Thanks very much.

    I ordered 2 banners from Aura Print for my dj business. One for on the front of my booth and the other for outdoor public events to put on railings etc. Their website allows you to enter custom sizes of the banner to suit your needs. My booth is 4ft wide so I entered 4ft by 1ft in the appropriate boxes and it gave me the size I wanted at a low price. They sent my banners out by next day delivery and they came super quick. The quality was exceptional and I will be ordering with them again infact i'm designing a new banner now! They also have a thick hem on the banners which is extremely important as they increase the strength of the banner and prolong the life of the banner when used outdoors.

Why do people choose marble paper to print on?

Well, to answer this  we need to consider what people think of when they see a marble pattern. Marble is a hardy, typically white stone, with coloured spots and lines occurring naturally through it. It can be highly polished and is commonly used for sculptures and architecture. It's qualities include being very smooth, extremely hard wearing and clean looking. Favoured by Greek and Roman sculptors, marble has become associated with tradition and refined taste. Marble was used to create some of the most famous buildings in the world, such as the Taj Mahal. More commonly in day to day life you can encounter marble in luxury kitchens, banks, fancy offices etc. Coming back around to the question we started with, marble is used in printing to convey these characteristics; suggesting the same quality and beauty as its origin suggests.

 

How is marble paper made?

You may not remember this, but did you ever make marble paper as a child? It involves dipping the paper into a coloured solution and leaving it to dry. Paper marbling creates a water type surface design, like that seen in real marble. The pattern is a result of colour floated on either plain water or a viscous solution, into which the paper is dipped to absorb. Marbling is fantastic, in that every single sheet produced has a unique and individual pattern that no other piece of paper will have. It is by far a better look than simply printing a marble design onto blank paper.

 

So, how is marble paper used in print?

Marble suggests a timeless characteristic and perhaps even an aged feel. It is often seen used with a calligraphic print, which is another ancient technique that therefore works well with this design. So without further ado, here's some examples we've found for you.

Our current favourite use for marble paper is for business cards. Coupled with metallic foil printing, it can look exceptional.

Marble paper can offer a very classy look for prestigious certificates too, with or without foiling.

You can also find marble paper used for book or folder covers on notebooks or literature.

Marble printing is also becoming a popular choice for invitations and envelopes.

As we've mentioned, a popular choice of ink with this technique is gold or silver foil; as this supports the aged, luxurious timeless image of the natural stone.

Lets wrap it up

At Aura print, we can support all your marble business paper needs, from business cards to invites and more. We also foil in house, therefore meaning your dream design can be produced quickly and personally, without breaking the bank.
