Default Names of Paper

WE have a paper that used to be called Royal Impression and now another paper merchant has started selling it and called it "Hello "
there must be other great paper names out there

St. Ives have started using Hello, which we all used to call gloss art.
Silk art paper really should be called "Hello darling!"

That paper merchant feller is damned familiar: he must be a bloody socialist!

I am a little out of the loop, as paper merchants no longer deluge me with samples. But I see them in the magazines, and am pretty sure our names are much more humdrum and ordinary than yours seem to be.

For example, I just got a sample from Weyerhauser of Cougar cover and text. Nice. Smooth. Basic colors. Seems to print very well (but paper samples are always beautifully printed).

Otherwise, it seems the old papers are still around: Mohawk (many), Strathmore, like that.

We must be lacking in imagination!

Was that because the paper was so rough it scratched the metal off the coin, or because it was so flakey the coin removed the coating?
