Hot Off the Press! Canson’s New Pads Announced!

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Canson introduced a complete new line of pads at NAMTA, including new Eco-Friendly Line featuring the World of Eric Carle ™ Illustrations.
“To better satisfy the needs of our loyal consumers, we enlisted professional artists and art professors to assist us in redesigning the entire range of Canson pads for optimum performance and usability. We are very pleased to introduce this new range of fine art pads,” said Bob Toth, VP of Marketing.
The new pad ranges include:
The Artist Series pads, designed for professional artists and those who have refined their skills, present the highest quality papers for artists who demand performance without compromise, and they are designed with understated black covers, subtle artwork and innovative binding features.

The Foundation Series pads, designed for art students and beginners, offer art enthusiasts the same high-performance papers artists choose, in pads with a lower sheet count and a lower price point.

The XL Series deliver superior quality papers and excellent construction in pads, while providing exceptional value.

The Eco-Friendly line of pads featuring the World of Eric Carle ™ illustrations, designed for children ages three to nine, provide a surface for young minds to express, create, learn and grow.  The new line includes pads for sketching, painting, tracing, and a variety of other creative activities.  All of the paper is quality, recycled and acid-free; the pads feature fold-over pad covers; and the cover is non-toxic, lead-free and soy-based.

The improved Canson pads are more durable, with heavier covers and innovative hidden Euro bindings that offer a sleek look that survives repeated opening and closing and ensures clean sheet removal that leaves the pad intact.  Additionally, Canson’s pioneering micro-perforations permit usage of true-size sheets that are now found on every student grade pad.

The new pad range complies with Canson’s ECO Pledges:
•             Made from sustainably managed forestry
•             Reduced energy consumption
•             Low emissions to air and water
•             Limited use of harmful chemicals
•             Recycling of waste materials
