We are  for business.

WT Papier, founded in September 2016, is the Paper-Repro office of the Werkplaats Typografie family.

We offer a form of modified and self-described re-paper that reveals different degrees of its previous life. Using sheets exclusively from WT print runs collected throughout the year, the material is coated(er) with SunChemical white offset ink to give it a new life.

This process gives the paper a unique surface, best described as the love child between your favourite pearl shine wrapping paper and the candy gloss cover of the September issue.

Purchase WT Papier

If you are interested in purchasing WT Papier for your project, or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call
(+31 [0]26 353 5774) or email (mail@werkplaatstypografie.org) to book a consultation. We offer a boutique service in which we discuss the paper’s degree of reveal, its genetic modification, sheet size, or any other specifics relating to your project.

Order Paper Dummies

If you would like to experience the tooth of WT Papier, you can also order a paper dummy. Our paper dummies are available in A5 format with 252 pages or A4 format with 126 pages, they are perfect bound with cold glue, and contain print samples that demonstrate the unique properties of the paper in use.

To order a paper dummy for 30€ please email (mail@werkplaatstypografie.org) with the dummy format you would like to order, your postal address, preferred method of payment, and we will be in touch to arrange the details.
