The Beauty of LCI Cotton Letterpress Paper
Unlike other Letterpress paper, LCI Cotton with its toothy smooth finish is suitable for true design art with unmatched detail. Paper made using the finest, purest cotton linters is more expensive but well worth it. Besides its pure clean look, using the finest linters allow for an easy definable grain direction. Grain direction is important for scoring (creasing) the paper without cracks.
Double thick LCI Cotton is a pasted board of two 111lb cardstock papers (you heard that right) making for an amazing 222lb / 600gsm paper. To prevent separation of the paper board we use the finest adhesives and paste reel to reel. The end result is a pasted sheet that is flat with no curling, which means less waste during printing. This is a modern communication paper!
