The re-launched Rives range maintains the subtle but distinctive textures for which it was known
Antalis has announced the re-launch of Rives following its acquisition of the paper brand in November 2022 from defunct supplier Arjowiggins. Since then, Antalis has selected a range of suppliers to produce the most popular items from the Rives range, in order to provide continuity in quality.
Made in Europe to the same manufacturing process and standards as before and available from stock, the re-launched Rives range includes the familiar textures of Laid, Design, Linear, Shetland and Tradition alongside Rives Sensation and new addition, Rives Digital, suitable for both dry toner and HP Indigo applications, which is available in convenient split-pack quantities.
The felt-marked textures with geometric and fabric-inspired patterns are made using marking cylinders to give a subtle yet highly visible texture. The papers are FSC–certified and carbon balanced as standard through Antalis’ partnership with World Land Trust. Antalis suggests that Rives is ‘the ideal choice for corporate communications and creative applications such as greeting cards, brochures, publishing and luxury print’.
Sales manager for creative papers at Antalis, Vicky Weatherington, commented, ‘Rives has long been a favourite of brands and designers, so we are delighted to be able to bring this beautiful, tactile range back to market. Rives afficionados can rest assured that the range continues to be made to the same high standards as when it was first produced in the French city of the same name.’
