Re: [BKARTS] 20# bond grain direction

What suggestions do you have for printing on 20# bond paper. Usually,
cut the page in half, which causes the grain to be in the wrong
direction for PVA binding (warps and wrinkles). I hesistate to use
11x17, as it would require a potentially inaccurate cut, and I don't
want to waste the paper by printing only one page per side. Is there a
way to buy paper with the grain running on the short edge? If so,

If you cannot purchase a particular paper in a cut size with the
correct grain direction, you will have to purchase a larger size (i.e.
25" x 38", etc.) and cut it down. Unfortunately, it can mean a certain
amount of waste, BUT that is what one has to do in order to fulfill the
standards that you establish for your work  --- the customer will just
have to pay for the added charges.

For us here in the states, the GLODAN PAPER, INC (800-770-7913 USA
calls, or outside the USA: 717-737-7913)  will supply any (small)
quantity of paper in full sheet size and other cut sizes. They also
have a website at        www.glodan.com .
