Swell Touch Paper (formerly ZyTex Paper)

Our industry leading Swell Touch paper is made in-house, ensuring we control the process from start to finish.  This allows us to produce the highest quality swell paper at the industry’s best pricing.

Creating stunning tactile graphics doesn’t need to be difficult, or take a long time. With our Swell Touch paper, you can quickly create durable graphics with varying heights, patterns, textures and colors. These graphics can be shared amongst readers over and over again. Our Swell Touch paper is recognized as the highest quality available and delivers superior results every time.

How does it work?

Swell Touch paper has two sides – a white, slightly textured side and a smooth liner. The textured side is where you will print, or draw, your graphic. This specialized coating we developed is non-toxic and safe for all.  When a black line, or carbon-based inks, are drawn on this coated paper and exposed to heat through our Swell Form machine, these black areas will swell. Colors can also be printed, or drawn, on Swell Touch paper, however, they will not swell and are typically used to make a graphic visually pleasing. The finished product is a durable tactile graphic that can be shared by many.
