Search the database

In our new online paper database you can find a selection of paper and cover materials from suppliers who are partners of De Monsterkamer. The search functions allow you to easily find and compare paper options any time and anywhere.

Through the sample service you can request up to 3 A4 samples a day. Unique to the database is that printed samples are linked to the papers, so you get an idea about potential applications.

Our own magazine on and about paper, Plain Paper, is released at the increasingly popular annual Plain Paper Party.
