Our ivory is somewhat off-white. Our white paper has actually been photographed on ivory, so any images of the white will show the difference – this listing has such an image: www.etsy.com/listing/584007563/41-x-58-a6-210gsm-white-handmade-deckle.
For artists and creatives looking for higher quantities we recommend buying from our factory directly. The same range of paper is available on their website with discounts for larger quantities. You can browse the range there at:

Yes, our paper is suitable for hand calligraphy by ink-artisans. Our internal sizing and finish provide a fine-tooth, making our paper texture nib-friendly. Guidance from artists familiar with our paper is provided in our guide for calligraphy on handmade paper on our website (http://indiancottonpaperco.com/guides/advice-for-calligraphy-on-handmade-cotton-paper).
Yes, and we recommend using an inkjet printer if you are printing on our paper at home. Most modern printers will have an envelope setting which tells the printer to expect the paper to be fed in manually. Only feed a few sheets into the printer at a time or even individually if you need to.

Due to the handmade nature of our paper each piece won't be perfectly straight so we advise printing 5-10% more pieces than you need to in order to ensure you can test your alignment and feeding.
If you're unfamiliar with paper weights a good way to compare is with normal printer paper which you may have at home. Normal printer paper is around 60gsm, so our 150gsm paper is just over twice as thick – we recommend taking 2 sheets of printer paper and feeling the thickness between your fingers. Our 210gsm paper is just over 3 sheets of printer paper.

We hope that helps with your selection. It might be difficult to choose, but regardless of what you decide our pieces will look and feel luxurious and timeless.
Yes, and for best results we recommend our thicker grade of 210gsm pieces for letterpress and foil press.
These differences in our pieces are due to the handmade nature of our paper. There will be slight a variation in size, weight (±10%), and even colour shade as everything we do is by hand, from colour mixing to lifting each sheet. These variances and slight imperfections are part of the charm of our handmade paper.
