It is possible to letterpress on thin wood laminate, however, I don't
imagine being able to fold something like that.
Perhaps the photo your client saw used the Gmund wood-grain embossed
paper? It comes in several colors. http://www.gmund. com/products/ savanna

- Hi, You can buy wood veneer in sheets from NY Central Art Supply. Their online catalog is a beast but you should be able to find it on this page by scrolling down http://www.nycentralartsupply.com/americas/usa4.html. I buy this all the time to use in bindings. It is paper backed and prints very well. It's worth getting the swatch book.
- there is also cardsofwood.com that will sell you blanks of their veneer, they do 1ply and 2ply and can back it with a material that will allow folding.hope that helps in your quest.
I have about fifty sheets of wood grained paper, 8.5x11, which I bought from Daniel Smith in
Seattle; but I see by their current catalogue that it is no longer listed. The sheets are plain on
the verso & a lovely wood grain from a mould on the face. It is white/ivory in color. I think it
possible that Daniel Smith could tell you who their supplier might have been. Their number
is 800 426 6740, & I would ask for the paper buyer or manager. They can also be reached by
email at customer.service@...
- If you actually want veneer, the source for it is Albert Constantine, which moved from Bronx to Florida several years ago. Check their website. You cut it with a razor blade or mat knife. Used by itself, it splits very easily so the paper-backed variety would be better to print on.David
