Crane's Lettra

Crane's Lettra is engineered for letterpress. It is 100% cotton, soft and luxurious to the touch, yet strong and stable on press. Lettra's distinct "letterpress finish" is rare and engaging in a machine-made, commercial paper. 

Lettra is uncalendered, meaning that it is not smoothed in the calender stacks on the papermaking machine. The cotton fibers are relatively uncompacted, so the sheet feels extra-bulky, even fluffy.
