Get (back) into home sewing with our high-quality 60gsm plotter paper

Posted by Louise 13/05/2020 0 Comment(s) Prizma,

One time-honoured practice that has become unexpectedly topical lately is sewing. Already a trend in recent years in part due to a revival of interest in ‘retro’ hobbies and pursuits, sewing has seen even greater relevance over the past month or so, and not only because many of us are finding we have more time to sew at home while off work or furloughed.


That’s because we’ve even seen headlines over the last few weeks about the NHS, businesses and local communities joining forces to produce gowns for health professionals, at a time of unprecedented demand for these essential items.


So, the already burgeoning popularity of the sewing pattern market pre-COVID-19 has been propelled yet higher by the exceptional circumstances of the pandemic. Do you, however, have the plotter paper that will enable you to do the best job in your own sewing efforts?


A leading sewing-ready paper


Our broad range of inkjet media offers the perfect solution that both novice and experienced sewers will appreciate – a lightweight semi-translucent 60gsm inkjet plotter paper that is available ex-stock from our warehouse for next-day delivery, and can be used with inkjet and digital toner printers.


This particular plotter paper is provided on 50m and 150m-length rolls, in widths ranging from 610mm right up to 1067mm. It is frequently chosen by pattern makers for the creation of sew patterns, with its semi-translucence making it ideal for tracing and overlays.


It is worth noting that this specific paper is whiter than tracing paper, as well as less slippy, which makes tracing upon it easier. It is also well liked for its ease in pinning to the fabric.


Printers can also expect this paper to hold line colour well without bleeding. A further benefit of this paper is its light weight, which equates to lower postage costs for those distributing drawings and patterns to customers through the mail.


The 150m variant of this plotter paper is provided on a 3” core, and can be used on digital toner printers or HP PageWide plotters that are capable of accepting longer length rolls.

Whatever paper of ours you may have in mind for your sewing exploits, you will be pleased to hear that we are constantly increasing our stock levels to keep up with demand, with all orders being supplied direct from our warehouse.


While our minimum order requirement is one roll, we can also supply pallets of 40 rolls, in the same or mixed sizes.
