It would be nice if this were true, however some papers have so much sizing
in them that it isn't always the case. Among those I have had difficulties with
are Stonehenge (all colors) and Arches Cover Black (though Arches Cover white
and warm white fold well), both fairly heavy papers. But Ed is right
generally, that if you are folding with the grain cracking, splitting and wrinkling
are certainly minimized. Barbara Harman
