Over the holidays Mohawk opened its paper mill in update New York to kor group. One of our designers Doug was able to tour the mill and meet with Mohawk representatives.

Mohawk makes fine quality printing papers we love to use. Recently we’ve been using the Navajo range for several high end print projects. We also been using the Curious Collection, and Carnival as well as Superfine Digital Papers.

A native of upstate New York, Doug grew up right near the mill. While visiting family over the holidays, Doug had an opportunity to visit the mill and bring along some family members for a behind the scenes tour of how they make some of their most popular papers. They saw 70lb text paper being made. They saw the whole process - everything from the pulping room, where they blend together the precise ingredients - all the way until the final product rolls off the end of the machine.

Here is a few highlights of things learned and seen on the tour:
the chemical make up of the pulp mixture and pulp source wood fiber
how they incorporate recycled content into the paper
how the the “felt” and “wire” sides of paper are formed
how coatings are applied
what happens in the calendaring section of the machine
the rigorous testing process each batch goes through

Keep and eye out for future blogs and work featuring Mohawk Papers.

We want to say thank you to Chris, Becky and Brandon at Mohawk for their generous hospitality.

We were fortunate to join Doug on the tour of Mohawk Paper.  Becky and Chris were so kind to take time out of their busy schedule to share their story and a history of the paper mill.  The tour was so very interesting and I came away with a whole new sense of paper, recycling and how everything gets incorporated to produce a high quality paper.  It was absolutely amazing.  Thank you to Mohawk Paper, Becky, Chris and our tour guide Brandon.
