Beautiful cream-colored paper for printing music
Reviewed in the United States on August 23, 2019
I did a lot of research before I ordered this paper, which I wanted to use for printing music on my new wide format inkjet printer. I wanted something that was not completely white, so this was a rare find for me. The name of the color of this paper is "Warm White." There is a version of this same brand in white (not cream-colored). Also, I wanted to print music that is 9 x 12 inches. The only available paper in that specific pre-cut size is for architects, ARCH 4. But 11 x 17 paper is easy to cut to 9 x 12 size. You just have to have a paper cutter and spend a bit of extra time cutting the paper after you print your music. A word about the weight numbers. I found that 70 lb. means one thing in 11 x 17 size, and a different thing in the 8½ x 11 size that most people are familiar with. You have to understand how paper is manufactured before you understand the confusing and seemingly illogical weight numbers. Having said that, rest assured that you will find this paper about the same weight and feel of the 28 lb. paper you can buy in any office supply store. Music printed on 20 lb. paper has to either be punched and put into a 3-hole binder, or taped together at the edges so it won't fly off a music stand. I mentioned that I have an inkjet printer. Music looks beautiful and crisp printed on this paper. Another thing that I found out is that this paper is long grain. It states that on the label. That means that one sheet of printed music won't curl up and slide off the stand after you have cut it to 9 x 12 inches. If you want to print music on a wide format laser printer, be prepared to spend a fortune on such a machine! Another tip for musicians: you have to find a way to bind your music if you have more than one page per piece. Invest in some sort of binding machine, such as coil, comb, or one that makes it easy to use paper medical tape to connect the edges.
