Papersamples for Intaglio, from Zerkall

Since many centuries paper is produced in this mill; letter paper, stationary, but also paper for the graphic arts. A special adaption of the machine makes it possible to create paper with four "deckle-edges"
All the qualities are acid free, neutral sized, alkaline buffered with calcium carbonate and contain no optical brightener. They meet the requirements for permanence according to ANSI/NISO Z 39.48-1992 and DIN ISO 9706. Because each item is Mould Made with natural deckle edges, format specifications have to be regarded as approximate measurements. Besides these stock items Zerkall offers special makings for individual purposes.


On this page you find enlarged images of the paper surfaces. The paper structure is shown clearly because of the chosen enlarging (approximately 15x) and the floodlight during photography.
