Glama Natural® Translucent Printing Papers are easy to print on when following these simple hints. We recommend you pre-test all procedures prior to press time to ensure you achieve the desired results.
For optimum results, we recommend low-solvent (0-5%), oil-based inks that dry by oxidation. Ink with higher than recommended solvent content may cause ink-set difficulties. In-plant ink formulation is not recommended. Normal heatset and UV inks have printed successfully on Glama Natural and eliminate drying time. Ask your ink manufacturer about Glama Natural products specifically.
Keep Glama Natural wrapped in mill packaging until the moment of printing. It is essential to let the paper acclimatize in the press room for a minimum of 24 hours – longer during cold weather. Also keep Glama Natural 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. If the bindery has a different climate than the pressroom, allow the paper to acclimatize to those conditions. Should you experience a curl problem it is most likely temperature – or humidity – related. We recommend printing in small lifts and frequent airing of lifts. Avoid using on-press heat and drying systems.
Run the ink-water balance at an absolute minimum. The pH should not be below 4.0. We suggest adding up to 10% alcohol. Given the non-porous property of Glama Natural, excess water won’t be absorbed or removed from the blanket. Any excess water will slow drying time. Solid or multiple color bars can be used to assist in removing water and aid in ink set time.
If the job requires offset spray, use coated spray of normal fineness.
A clear, overprint varnish can be used to seal the sheet and reduce curling when Glama Natural is used as a cover, wrap, free-hanging application or when very heavy ink coverage is applied to one side of the paper. Apply 100% VOC-free varnish after the underlying ink is dry. Consult your varnish supplier and pre-test for compatibility. Do not use aqueous coatings.
Do not use a newly sharpened blade when cutting Glama Natural products as it may chip. A slightly dull but clean-edged blade with a 23º-bevel angle is ideal.
FOLDING AND SCORING:
Always fold, score and bind with the grain direction. Start with a 2 point rounded channel score. The matrix channel should be a minimum width of 2.5 times the caliper of the sheet, plus 0.028”, usually 0.040” or 0.050”. Do not use sharp tools when folding and scoring.
I made the mistake of buying this for an inkjet printer
It may be fine for a laser jet, but this paper does not print well with an inkjet paper.
This product was not what I was expecting.
Using Customer Service's input the Vellum paper was selected to make invites for an upcoming event. But the paper was a lot heaver then expected and the embossing could not be seen from underneath.
Awesome Choice for any Project
I initially purchased this vellum to be used for Wedding Invitations. I was able to die cut with out any problems. Due to the odd size of the Invitations, I was able to make Thank you cards with the left overs from the sheets. I stamped on the Vellum & used my heat tool to give it a quick dry and they were none. I have since used it to make Easter & Mother's Day cards.
Perfect for wedding invites
My future daughter-in-law planned a fairy tale wedding theme. This paper was laser printed and then embossed in an embossing folder. The paper was sturdy so it did not crack like some other vellum I have used. It also was thin enough that I was able to emboss 4 pieces at once making my job a little bit easier. I asked for advice before I bought it and the advice was superb! Thank you Paper Mill! Delivery was super fast so I could get started right away.
I use this to copy painting patterns the translusitcy of the paper works wonderful when putting on details
