Sample Kit
Design objective:
Create a paper sample book for a real
or fictional paper company featuring
a concept or theme for at least 6
different varieties (color or texture) of
paper. All images and type must be
printed on the actual paper from your
company. The paper sample book/
kit should be formatted so that the
consumer can remove or actually feel
the samples of the paper. •
Learn about various paper attributes
Create a paper promo that shows off the quality of a paper product line, and how
it can be used.
Develop a visual concept that advertises a brand line of paper.
Use a existing tag line for the product line, or develop a tag line for the product.
Exposure and practice of building and binding.
Paper promo Kit: (FINAL PRODUCT)
• Develop a tag line or use and existing tag line that relates to the
product line.
• Use images printed on the actual paper to show how color can look.
• Images should relate to the theme or concept.
• Depends on what type of binding you choose. • Standard paper sample booklets- outside binding 9 x 6. This size is
not the size of the pages of the booklet or paper samples, this is the
outside cover size.
• You do not need to make it this size, you can experiment and try
something different. Pages:
• Pages do not matter. What matters is the amount of various papers
you use in the sample kit.
• 6 or more various types of paper. You can do more types of paper.
• You can find a specific sub-brand of paper (product line) and do your
kit on that product line only.
• All the paper samples or swatches must be labeled with the name,
style, and weight
