The traditional genuine watermark is a pattern embedded into the paper structure itself, with minimums starting at 2,000 lbs of paper. The watermark is applied while the paper is being made and pressed in by a roller-mounted die (called a dandy roll) while the loose fibers are still wet-hence, the name “watermark.”
Genuine Watermarks come in three types: Wire, Shaded and Combination.
All bring an elegant and distinctive touch to business stationery without interfering with the letterhead design or the printability of the sheet on lithographic or office equipment.
Subtle yet visible, private watermarks on stationery papers provide readers with a gentle reminder of the sender’s identity.
