Neenah Paper Capitol Bond

Capitol Bond Papers are easy to print on when following these simple hints. It is recommended to pre-test all printing procedures prior to press time to ensure the desired results are achieved.


Print Capitol Bond like any conventional uncoated paper. We recommend heat resistant, wax free ink if you plan to follow lithography with xerographic or laser printing technologies.


Keep Capitol Bond products wrapped until the moment of printing. It is essential to let the paper acclimate, for a minimum of 24 hours – longer during cold weather – in the press room while still wrapped in mill packaging. Keep Capitol Bond products covered during drying, between passes and prior to any finishing work. Pressroom conditions should be as close as possible to 68 degrees, and 45-60% relative humidity.


Varnish is optional as a surface protector.


To properly score Capitol Bond, use a rounded channel score. It is recommended to use a minimum width of 2.5 times the caliper of the sheet to be scored, plus 28/1000” for the channel. Score with the grain, using a light letterpress score (not on-press litho-scoring) Use a minimum score width of 1 point, with 2 points preferred. Fold into the bead of the score.


Capitol Bond is suitable for all standard binding processes. It is important to plan for proper grain direction in all binding applications. Grain direction should run parallel to the spine for optimum results.
