is now a supporter of the Fifteen Foundation and the great work done by
celebrity chef Tobie Puttock and the team at Fifteen in Melbourne. Founded in the UK by chef Jamie Oliver in
2002, Fifteen is more than a fine restaurant - it's a social enterprise
designed to support and inspire disadvantaged and marginalised young people,
and to create the next generation of young chefs.
Putting a young person through the program costs about $60,000, so the Fifteen Foundation needs all the help it can get. And Stephen is more than happy to oblige. Every tonne of Stephen sold now contributes $100 towards the training of an apprentice chef through the Fifteen Foundation.
As popular as Stephen is as a paper, the Fifteen partnership was the perfect motivation for giving Stephen a makeover. Once again, we asked designers what they wanted - and the new Stephen delivers, with stronger environmental credentials, better opacity and a heavier board weight.
Stephen is now 50 per cent recycled and FSC Mixed Source Certified in all colours, making it an ideal choice for applications where environmental credentials are paramount - annual and sustainability reports, direct mail, brochures and corporate stationery.
Spicers says a new formulation provides great opacity for text weights, which, combined with Stephen's natural bulk, offers excellent printed results on lighter weights. The 330gsm board weight is designed for consistently reliable performance.
There is also a new palette of versatile whites, neutrals and browns.
