Personal Review Blog on Springhill Vellum Bristol Gold Available at Amazon.com

I know that Bristol board is usually used for catalog and book covers, tickets, tags and printing brochures. But as a student of architecture and an avid designer, I use this kind of paper for my scale models (which, for those who are not familiar with the term, is a smaller physical version of something bigger, like a building or an automobile). I currently have several sets of two- and three-ply bristol papers that are used as walls of my scale models. One-ply is almost translucent so I rarely use them.

Bristol, as it is commonly referred to, is a kind of paperboard which is ideal for tons of things and comes in a variety of colors.

I love using Bristol paper because it's very versatile. I buy a whole bunch of them and stack them on my desk so I have something nice to use in various illustrations, technical drawings and even 2D art forms. Actually, illustration boards are also fine in such purposes but I find it impractical for you can only use one side of it. On the other hand, Bristol board have two working surfaces, so basically, you can use either or both sides.

And because I normally use charcoal and crayon as my primary media form, vellum finish is more ideal for me. It has a moderate surface texture which is really apt for friction-based medium. Works well with pens, too! (But if you are more focused on using ink, choose the plate finish Bristol paper instead -- it's glass-like texture is better suited for ink.)

The current brand I use is from Springhill Vellum Bristol. This Bristol paper works like a charm. And it's very accessible, even online. Just go to Amazon.com and search for Springhill Vellum Bristol Gold.

One pack contains 5 sheets and weighs a total of 1 pound so it's not that costly even if you order online. Their gold colored is consistent all throughout the papers and it is the exact hue I needed, too!

I also found out it worked nicely when used in promotional materials (when I once ran out of specialty paper for our theater presentation). I have tried several other brands and they all worked fine, but honestly, I think this is the best brand around.

Amazon Review on Springhill Gold A-2 Envelope by Amett Wolf

Personal review on amazon products for sale on springhill gold A-2 envelope.


Actually, I was not expecting much from products I purchase online because of past experiences where the shipped items were not at all what they are advertised to be. Like the other set of envelopes I ordered from another brand last month which arrived quickly but were pretty much useless to me -- every single one of them has a damage. That's when I became conscious of getting the highest quality in everything (because money is involved).

When I ordered from Amazon.com this Springhill gold A-2 envelope and it arrived the other day, I immediately inspected it for any signs of damage but I was pleased that there's none. What's more, it really looks very classy and fits my purpose of using it in sending out invitations for an important event. I am almost certain that I will convey a great impression to the receiver because of the quality of the envelope I use.
I expected it to do good in laser and inkjet printing and it didn't let me down. The ink does not smear and dries quite easily. I have even tried to do offset printing on it and it worked nicely!
The gold color looks great on the pearly white paper I used for the content.
Another good thing about this Springhill Gold envelope is that it is acid- and lignin-free. That means even if you print an image or a logo on it, it won't readily fade. (Plus, the whole thing is made by NE OPCO Inc DBA National from recycled with 30% post-consumer fiber -- a green factor which kinda makes you feel good when buying a product.)
Amazon.com has Springhill Gold A-2 Envelopes in stock pretty much everyday and they are perfect for business correspondence, announcements, invitations or even for personal use. If you need it for bulk use, each box contains 250 envelopes and the whole thing weighs 4 pounds.
Whether it is for business, marketing or personal use, this springhill envelope looks perfect for the part.
