¿What is laid paper?
Laid paper is a paper with a distinctive texture formed by a grid of horizontal and vertical stripes with a slight relief. The original grid of laid paper was a consequence of the papermaking process.
laid paper is highly valued for its texture. As a printer’s paper, laid paper is valued not so much for its weight, stiffness, opacity or clogging rate, but for its texture and color. Laid paper is used in graphic design, advertising and printing. It is ideal for printing invitations, greeting cards, diplomas, training certificates, decorations, etc.
What can be printed on laid paper?
Today, the processes have been modernized. Now, the production of laid paper is done by imitating the finish through the insertion of a special watermark. This watermark is applied in the pressing and sheeting processes.
