The Specification Department at Anchor Paper Co.

The Specification Department at Anchor is a key to the success of our business. Anchor has maintained a strong specification department for 25 years. In order to serve our audience well, we have a full-time employee working with our customers: designers, printers, corporations and agencies.


Your Anchor Specification Rep is here to solve your challenges

We have paper that is out-of-the-ordinary, to really “wow” your client. And we’ll let you know if it needs special print techniques.

We will find out if the paper you want is currently in stock at Anchor for tomorrow’s delivery to your printer.

We will construct a mockup of your project.

We can find envelopes to match the stationery you are designing.

We will help you source stock made up of 100% post-consumer-waste fiber.

Last-minute changes in paper availability can make you tear out your hair! Let us help you find an available alternative.

Are you trying to match a paper that was manufactured in 1985? We can help!
