Southworth� Parchment Specialty Paper, 8 1/2 x 11, Copper, Pack Of 500
Beautiful Multipurpose Fine Paper
I use this paper regularly. It is both beautiful and distinctive. It works well with ivory paper. If you ever make stapled booklets, it works as a cover, as it has a bit of extra stiffness to it as well as texture. I have never tried it on an inkjet printer, as we have only a black-and-white laser printer, but it works beautifully in that printer, with the black print contrasting very nicely with the rich color.
Although it looks fairly dark in the picture, it is not. When I held it against plain ivory paper just now, they were very similar in tone. The primary difference that made the Xerox plain ivory copy paper seem much brighter is that it is smoother. The parchment has a definite texture and a matte finish; it is definitely easier on my eyes.
