Antalis has confirmed the relaunch of Keaykolour, following its acquisition of the paper brand from former supplier Arjowiggins.

Keaykolour was taken over by Antalis at the same time that several other brands were acquired from Arjowiggins Scotland, which went into administration in September 2022.

Since owning the Keaykolour brand, Antalis has worked closely with manufacturing experts to produce a refreshed range of papers with ‘exceptional quality’. The refreshed Keaykolour collection comprises uncoated papers, boards and matching envelopes with a natural touch and ‘sophisticated’ colour palette. With 45 shades to choose from, Keaykolour is claimed to offer one of the largest ranges of coloured papers on the market.

Paper shades have been matched for the nine colour families within the collection, which range from pastels to brights and halftones to intense, allowing a variety of mix and match possibilities. Consistency of colour is assured thanks to the use of 100% fresh fibre pulp, which also ensures strength and rigidity to support higher technical capabilities for finishing and converting.

Stocked in the UK, the updated Keaykolour range is now available in a broad range of weights, from 120-450gsm. The range also offers options for dry toner and HP Indigo, and the full collection is suitable for embossing, letterpress and other print techniques. To enable colour matching for a brand, or to create a unique colour, bespoke makings are also available upon enquiry.

Vicky Weatherington, sales Manager for creative papers at Antalis, said, ‘Keaykolour has been a hugely popular choice for designers and creatives for all kinds of print projects for many years now. We’re delighted to offer continuity of the prestigious brand with an impressive array of colours, lovely tactile feel and improved colour consistency and technical capacity.’
