A soft, rough-textured finish applied to uncoated paper, similar to a fabric with felt weave.
A soft texture that affects the look but not the strength of an uncoated paper. A felt finish can be created at the wet end during the papermaking process in one of two ways; either with a roll that is covered with a felt, or with a rubber roll with a felt-patterned finish. An embossed felt finish is created off the machine, after the paper has dried. Champion Carnival Felt is an example of a paper with a felt finish created during the papermaking process.
Surface characteristics of paper formed at the wet end of a paper machine, using woven wool or synthetic felts with distinctive patterns to create a similar texture in the finish sheets.
Uncoated, uncalendered surface texture produced by using patterned felt belts and pressure in forming paper on the paper machine.
The side of paper that is smoothed, usually found in books.
a soft texture that affects the look but not the strength of an uncoated paper. A felt finish can be created at the wet or dry end of the papermaking process in one of two ways: either with a roll that is covered with a felt-patterned finish during the wet stage, or by embossing the felt finish after the paper is dry.
Highly tactile and soft textured, felt finish papers are ideal for special techniques such as embossing and foil stamping.
A soft finish applied to uncoated paper at the wet press, characteristic of the felt weave.
A finish to the top surface of paper created by the texture of the felt; often with a special weave.
A finish applied to the paper at the wet end of the paper machine by using felts of a distinctive weave rather than standard or regular wove felts.
A finish created at the wet end of the paper machine using woven wool and synthetic felts with distinctive patterns to create a similar texture on the finished sheets. These papers exhibit excellent opacity and are strong enough for use with special procedures such as stamping and embossing. They are well-suited for jobs with large nonprinted areas that display their interesting texture. Care should be taken when specifying halftones on felt-finished papers; they tend to absorb ink, and tonal areas may be lost.
The smoother side of paper, usually a soft weave pattern used for book papers.
Soft weave pattern in text paper.
A paper term referring to a soft woven pattern in text paper.
