Our papermakers offer a bespoke papermaking service for orders of both handmade sheets and machine made papers, not currently in stock and of commercially viable quantity. We have produced many special makings for designers, artists, advertising agencies and paper merchants. We have a reputation for fine quality unusual papers, many with inclusions.

Our machine made papers are made on our 1902, No 4 Fourdrinier paper machine, which has a reel width of 18". Makings can be of between 90gsm and 300gsm weight and of at least our minimum quantity of 100kgs. This lovely heritage machine enables us to make papers unique to us, from plain cartridge papers to 'specials' with inclusions, such as seeds, petals, silver foils, banana and animal poo papers.

Our handmade papers - distinguished by the makers mark in the picture - can be made up to 18" x 24" and using the range of moulds and deckles we have. These lovely sheets with their deckle edge are usually made from 100% cotton fibre. Handmade papers have a unique quality that you just want to touch and as with our machine made papers, may contain inclusions. We can also offer advice on printing onto our stock.

Don't forget you may actually find what you need in smaller quantities in our shop or amongst our paper stock. Do ask!
