OUGD504 - Studio Brief 1 - GF Smith Paper Lecture.

The northern representative from GF Smith came in to tell us about their products which made a massive impression on me.

He mainly spoke about the Colorplan range which they sell as it is all made in house in the Lake District and it's their own paper brand.

He told us about the colours of paper that they sell, the embossing patterns that can be pressed into their paper, and the weights which they are available in.
