  • What does paper grain direction mean?
    Paper is made of cellulose fibers that are long on one side and thin on the other (like a toothpick but much smaller). During the paper making process the fibers tend to line up, side by side, with the long part of the fiber consistently facing two directions while the thin part of the fiber faces the opposite two directions. Grain long refers to the two directions the long part of the fiber is pointing and grain short refers to the two directions the short side of the fiber is facing.
  • Why is grain direction important?
    Depending on the final use of the paper, the grain direction can play an important part in the quality of the finished product. For instance, paper folds easier in one direction than in the opposite direction and folding parallel to the grain is always easier. If the printed piece is a heavy card stock that needs to be folded, grain direction should be considered in order to make the fold easier and prevent cracking at the fold. There are also various printing techniques that work better based on the grain direction of the paper.
  • What is the grain direction of paper sold through Glodan?
    The grain direction of paper sold by Glodan is represented by the second dimension. 8.5 x 11 has a grain direction parallel to the 11” side and would be categorized as grain long. 35 x 23 has a grain direction parallel to the 23” side and would be categorized as grain short. 23 x 35 has a grain direction parallel to the 35” side and would be categorized as grain long. 25 x 38 has a grain direction parallel to the 38” side and would be categorized as grain long.
