- A watermark is an identifying image or pattern in the paper that appears lighter or darker when held to the light. The lightness or darkness is caused by the density or thickness of paper. In early times it was a way to identify the owner of a document. Watermarks could not be counterfited as easily as a royal wax seal could be.
- It is called a "watermark" because it is formed during the watery, sheetforming process of papermaking. The thickness differences are caused by wire designs sewn to the moulde screen.
- A custom watermark can be ordered at an additional cost and time, based on the complexity of the mark. Please contact us for a quote.
