Founders’ Banquet Sponsor

For generations, people have been relying on Southworth® papers to provide greater impact to their ideas. In fact, President Lincoln chose Southworth paper to accept Stephen Douglas’s invitation to debate, documenting the seriousness and historic nature of the event. Your own milestones – a new job, an important proposal, a 50th anniversary – deserve nothing less. Put the feel of Southworth paper in people’s hands and make an instant impression. Timeless quality at first touch.
