Decorative Papers

What makes Crowing Hens Bindery unique is that I also produce decorative papers. I use these papers on my own books and offer them to fellow bookbinders and artists to use as well. Whether hand marbled, painted, or letterpress printed I design my papers to meet the standards of durability and longevity. My inks and paints are colorfast and my papers are archival. Perfect for bookbinding, gift wrapping, collage, drawing, printing, or even framing, my papers will not only stand out, but also withstand the test of time.

Stone - Suminagashi Japanese style hand marbled paper

from 10.00

Suminagashi is Japanese style hand marbling. Printed on Mohawk Superfine 70# text weight natural. Each sheet is grain short and measures 18.5" x 25"

While similar patterns can be achieved, each sheet will be unique. A range of finished sheets is provided to demonstrate this similarity.

Sheets are graded into firsts and seconds. Due to the printing and rinsing process, there may be some printing on the backs of sheets. First quality sheets have little to no imperfections; second quality sheets may contain bubbles, ripples, or larger variations in pattern or ink density.
