Printmaking Paper, produced by Zerkall

Short history of "Papierfabrik Zerkall Renker & Söhne & Co. KG

The papermaking at Zerkall, with a smile...

Since many centuries paper is produced in this mill; letter paper, stationary, but also paper for the graphic arts. A special adaption of the machine makes it possible to create paper with four "deckle-edges"
All the qualities are acid free, neutral sized, alkaline buffered with calcium carbonate and contain no optical brightener. They meet the requirements for permanence according to ANSI/NISO Z 39.48-1992 and DIN ISO 9706. Because each item is Mould Made with natural deckle edges, format specifications have to be regarded as approximate measurements. Besides these stock items Zerkall offers special makings for individual purposes.

Due to the water damage during the July 2021 flood, Zerkall has unfortunately decided to end production. All Zerkall paper is therefore available "until the end of stock"

It is practically impossible to show the exact paper colour on a computer screen. Therefore it is recommended to buy a paper sample. It costs only 1 Euro, has a size of 18x23 cm (7"x9") and you can print on it.
