Since the early seventies this off-white, 50% cotton paper has been considered one the best student printmaking sheets available.

The blend of sulphite and cotton gives the sheet good internal strength to withstand the plate pressure from a handpress.

The paper has a subtle two-sidedness (smooth on one side and a slight vellum finish on the other) which lends itself to so many drawing applications - whether it be graphite, colored pencil, charcoal or pastel the paper's surface characteristics enhance the art.

The stock size of 26 x 40 and the 175gsm weight make it a favorite choice for limited edition bookwork and journals. The paper although lightweight has also been successful for offset printing (being internally and externally sized) and fairs as well for silkscreen.
