在台灣，表面隨著光線角度而產生漸層色澤，是相當受到歡迎的紙種，其特色是紙面會有一層金屬光澤塗層，會因為紙廠不同的配方與製作方式差異，對油墨產生程度不一的影響，形成油墨與金屬光混合的特殊效果。來自義大利紙廠Favini的Majestic原廠紙樣，正是為了將紙的光澤有效發揮，從圖型設計到印刷的照片，選擇了以 “Peacocks” 孔雀來做為設計的主題。而這一類的紙通常印刷適性上有著相當優秀的表現，在家用噴墨、碳粉到自動印刷機、燙金等常見技術都能夠良好的使用。
若單純使用Pantone色的情況下，可以發現較少人使用的酒紅色，與單色的藝術主題結合的相當巧妙；以右側的 “The Peacock Skirt” 為例子，原作者是以白圖畫紙與墨水創作，但應用於設計印刷的思路中，可以嘗試以不同顏色來取代原本白的底色，探索並測試圖形在不同紙張的表現、與加工方式的變化，也許能獲得理想的成果。
The Beautiful and Elegant Luster
In Taiwan, the paper with a surface that gradually alters with colour as the angle to the light changes is very popular. Its special feature is that there is a layer of lustre on the surface of the paper. Each paper mill has its own different ingredients in the manufacturing process of this lustre. This results in the special effects of the mixture between the ink and the lustre. This Majestic sample is the factory original sample from the Italian paper mill – Favini. In order to effectively apply the lustre of the paper, “Peacocks” is selected as the theme of its design in the printing.This type of paper usually has quite excellent results in printing. From injecting toner printer at home to automatic printer, hot foil embossing and etc. most of the common printing techniques can all be well applied.
In the instance where a simple Pantone colour is used, it can be found that not as many people would use the dark red colour, but this would combine quite well with single colour themed projects. In the example of “The Peacock Skirt” on the right, the author uses ink in combination with white paper as its design. However, from the design application perspective, a different colour to the original white base could be tried. Perhaps an ideal result could be achieved by testing and discovering the effects on different paper and printing techniques.
