Bristol Board is an uncoated, machine-finished paperboard. Bristol paper is used for printing documents, brochures, promotional materials and envelopes. It is often used for water color painting. It is also used for paperback book or catalog covers, file folders, tags, and tickets.
Our manila paper is made from semi-bleached wood fibres. It is not as strong as kraft paper but has better printing qualities. Manila is buff-coloured and the fibres are usually visible to the naked eye. Manila is most commonly used for making file folders.
Our Coated Bristol Boards have a smooth clay coating applied over a freesheet or groundwood base paper. The base paper is made first, then put through a “bath” of clay coating or coated while running on a machine, with a blade and calender rollers
