Manufactured using calcium carbonate and PE with an ultra-smooth surface for exceptional ink and colour lift. Verdure Riverstone proves a real environmental edge over standard synthetic substrates due to it recycled, chlorine free, and renewable composition. NOTE: Verdure Riverstone is a 100% recycled, therefore due to the complexities and impurities with raw pulp, slight shade and surface imperfections will be present from batch to batch. While Spicers will endeavour to minimise this overall impact some imperfections are unavoidable therefore it must be expected that the label appearance could vary from batch to batch.
