  • Help needed in identifying Paper Type

    I'm looking for help in recognising a particular paper type.
    I have seen it whilst on holiday in Italy - in the tourist shops it often had a Prayer or Popes image with a prayer or quote.
    It is white and semi transparent / translucent.

    I have tried looking at Parchment paper on google - but all I get is the usual fake printed A4 paper - Gold, gun metal grey etc.. And its not semi transparent.
    I have looked up Vellum paper on Google as well - but again no luck.
    Transpaprent Vellumn - comes up as more tracing paper than exactly what I'm looking for.

    I'd really love if someone knew the Exact name / type of paper that I've seen in Italy.

    Thanks in Advance.

      You want a translucent vellum, it's thicker than tracing paper. You can get it at craft stores.

        Remember all the things that made it easy to find whatever it was you were looking for on a site? Don't forget about it when you make your designs. The designs come second. Content first.
