This 60gsm lightweight semi-opaque inkjet plotter paper is a CAD report grade paper and is excellent for printing in monochrome but it has the added advantage of holding line colour well. This paper has been universally tested for use with any dye or pigment inkjet printer. It is a smooth, white paper with a uniform composition, different to tracing paper which although translucent has a grey appearance.
This paper allows a certain amount of 'show through' which makes it ideal for tracing and overlays and is widely used by pattern makers for creating sewing patterns. It is also a popular paper for producing check plots and copies using a dyeline printer due to it's semi-translucent quality. An added bonus is reduced postage costs due to its lighter weight if you are distributing your drawings by post.
The lightweight nature of this paper means that it may not be the ideal choice if your prints are subjected to a lot of handling or scanning. If this is the case, we recommend an 80gsm or 90gsm uncoated plotter paper, the heavier weight providing more durability.
