Swatch Boxes

A special service that Papersmith & Son offer is a Swatch Box. A Swatch Box is a convenient way for you to access the entire Papersmith & Son paper range, from paper weight grades to the board weights. Each individual product is categorized under its brand name with all the different colours and thicknesses clearly identified. This allows you to easily refer to a particular paper grade and to identify the exact colour and grammage within your range of interest. The advantages of the Swatch Box are endless, from ease of identification through to simply allowing you to remove the particular grade of interest when presenting paper options to clients.

You can obtain a swatch box from one of your nearest Papersmith branch for a fee of R200 incl VAT. Please fill in our contact form should you want to purchase a swatch box.


STudent Service

Recognising that design and print students are our future specifiers and customers, Papersmith and Son is happy to support education in these areas. We can provide support and information to lecturers and teachers to help educate students about the various aspects of paper, board and plastics.

Also, if you come into PaperCafe and show us your student card, you’ll get yourself a 15% discount off your purchase.



We appreciate that the swatches provided are limited in how far they demonstrate the true qualities of our papers. We are happy to provide sample sheets on request.
