2019 Color of the Year

Reich Paper Savoy grey 100% cotton tree free paper is used for color of the year invitation by Benjamin Moore

Benjamin Moore recently announced their 2019 Color of the Year, Metropolitan AF-690, a beautiful cool grey which they describe as “calm, composed and effortlessly sophisticated which exudes glamor, beauty and balance.” When the time came to design an invitation to announce the celebration, the company turned to Reich Paper’s SAVOY Grey 100% pure cotton paper.  Luxurious, timeless and soothing, our SAVOY Grey is available in all weights and in matching envelopes.  This modern yet classic color is neutral and understated and especially popular in the world of weddings, corporate communications and now, thanks to Benjamin Moore, home decor.  


This year’s invitation was beautifully engraved, burnished and letterpress printed on our 236# double thick cover weight paper.  The work was done by the talented group at Precise Continental, an award winning specialty printer located just outside of NYC. Known for superior customer service, the highest quality specialty printing services and environmentally sound practices they have been in business for over 30 years.
