You can opt to either a) buy an existing watermark paper off-the-shelf or b) choose to have your own logo, text, coat of arms, etc. as a bespoke watermark. For the custom watermark, this involves one of two processes 1) for smaller quantities (e.g. 2,000+ A4) we can produce your watermark paper using our patented process that can have your watermark paper ready to despatch within 7 to 10 days, or for more substantial orders (200,000 A4 sheets plus) we can get a custom dandy roller made at the mill, this works out more cost effective for higher volumes, however the lead time for this is in weeks, rather than days.
Make a distinctive impression with your own watermarked papers.
Watermarks are designs or patterns put into the paper when it is made, by making thinner (line or wire watermarks) or thicker (shadow watermarks) adjustments to the layer of pulp when it is wet.
It also has added chemical resistances as specified by APACS. Some of there properties are bleach, solvent, water and a range of chemicals that would be used for altering what is printed on the paper. The paper also provides a good medium for personalization (over printing) with a laser printer and the porous properties allow the toner to penetrate the surface which makes it more difficult for people to alter numbers, figures, names, dates and other details - examples of usage would be on cheques.
The object of watermarks in paper is, essentialy, identifying the paper, as a signature of the manufacturer, or as a security measure to avoid forgery of important documents such as bank notes, invoices, passports, entry tickets, etc.
Watermarks in the past have generally been reserved for large corporations with large budget.
