About our Paper, Card and Fonts
Our Paper and Card
Our paper is milled for Lyttletons by a firm that has been producing high quality writing paper for over 200 years. The paper is manufactured specifically for use with pen and ink in a range of beautiful finishes.
Paper weight is measured in gsm (grams per square metre) and we select the very best, heavy weight papers and boards. Our paper and card is produced without a water-mark so it is personal to you.

Wove & Laid
Wove is a smooth finish, Laid is a subtle textured finish produced by a milling methodology that would have traditionally used a raised grid on which the paper was laid out to dry. Thus why the finish is known as Laid and why the finish has a subtle pattern inherent in the paper.

We print using a high quality embossed finish as standard to all of our luxury products. The embossed finish is produced using a thermographic process. The raised surface of the print is associated with high quality and adds a touch of luxury to your stationery. Our premium products and some of our other made to order products are flat printed which we utilise to offer a range of colours and type faces and print finishes otherwise unavailable for embossing. Any products using our embossed or flat printing process are clearly marked in the product description. However should you have any question regarding the print style and finish of your chosen product then please do not hesitate to contact us.
