faire-part Velin d’ARCHES®

The most prestigious
 of traditional French-style announcement cards!

Faire-part Velin d'arches avec enveloppe filigranée

Made on a cylinder mould (traditional process) : quality close to that of paper made by craft methods. The slow turning of the cylinder enables the fibres to be deposited evenly and spread in all directions over the wire. The paper is therefore more homogeneous and has good dimensional stability. Only papermaking on a cylinder mould can produce paper with deckle edges.
