Group C Washi Paper
Good Quality, Lower Prices - Back to Front:
Masa, Shin-Torinoko Cream, Shin-Torinoko White
This is a group of good quality printmaking paper for bargain prices. These all have been sized for printing with water-based inks. (Of course you can print on them with oil-based inks too.)
Group C papers have a higher wood pulp content and range from ph 6.5 to ph 7.5 (ph 7 is acid free). The papers in this group run from light to medium weight, with a good strength to weight ratio. They are perfect for practice and proofing. Ideal for student use.
Different printing papers can be combined to qualify for the quantity discounts.
Paper is shipped rolled. If you prefer that we ship it flat, tell us in the box marked "Special Instructions" in the Shopping Cart. With few exceptions, shipping fees will be substantially higher because of the size of the package. Please let us know if you would like to know these fees before we ship.

|Masa - White 22" x 32"|
Crisp, bright white paper that accepts ink very well. Enjoy using a handmade paper at a very reasonable price! Do not confuse this paper with the light weight or waxed Masa commonly sold in the U.S. This paper is more like a heavy Hosho that has been sized for use with water-based inks. It is thick and tough enough to take multiple block printing well.
