Antalis donates paper for charity calendar

Distributor of paper and packaging, Antalis, has supported the Paper Artist Collective (PAC) with materials for the collective’s 2022 charity calendar.

The calendar features artists’ work from 9 different countries all using paper to send their message

As a global community of artists who create intricate pieces from paper, the generous donation from Antalis means PAC can go ahead with its unique project.

The calendar has been made to raise funds for Art Refuge, a charity that supports the mental health and well-being of people displaced due to conflict, persecution, and poverty. The calendar has been made as a response to the loss and isolation people have felt during the pandemic.

The choice of paper was crucial for the project to be successful due to the delicate and handcrafted nature of the artwork.

We are thrilled to be supporting the Paper Artist Collective and Art Refuge. It is an honour to donate the paper which will contribute towards making a truly beautiful piece of work to raise money for Art Refuge.

A paper was selected by Antalis and Service Graphics, which printed the calendar, which would effectively reflect and match the feel of the artwork with a ‘tactile’ feel.

Samantha Quinn, a paper artist and organiser for the collective, says: “The work of the collective’s members can be very delicate, so we wanted a paper that would produce high quality print, whilst having a feel of softness to it.”

The calendar features bespoke paper art pieces donated by fourteen PAC members that feature in the project. It is printed on FSC certified stock, and ships internationally and within the UK. All proceeds from the project will go to artrefuge.org.uk

“It was so much fun to imagine what the other eleven artists might be creating for their months” – Ankon Mitra

Antalis Paper Consultant, Charlotte Rowe, comments: “We are thrilled to be supporting the Paper Artist Collective and Art Refuge. It is an honour to donate the paper which will contribute towards making a truly beautiful piece of work to raise money for Art Refuge. iPrint Digital Uncoated provides a high-quality print, whilst maintaining the smoothness required by the collective.”

The calendar can be ordered on the Paper Artist Collective website and will be distributed towards the end of the year.
