The colours of this aged paper may vary because of the handmade process. It may differ from the product pictures due to monitor settings. This antique paper look is usually a yellow or light brown colour. Occassionally there may be some spots or lighter or darker area’s, just like with real parchment paper. The illustration is printed on the paper before the aging process, using a laser printer.

Additional info on aged writing paper
The aging process that gives this stationery writing paper its unique fairy tale look takes some time, but it’s well worth the effort. Using a blend of tea, coffee and some other secret (but natural) dyes the 80 grams recycled A4 sheets of paper get their distinctive golden yellow to light brown look.
Often the modern take of this aged paper is mistakenly called “parchment” or “vellum”. But traditional parchment wasn’t really the paper we know now; it was made of animal skin. Vellum is the name used for very thin parchment, usually made from young animals with thinner skins.
This modern take on the parchment look gives all the romantic fairy tale feelings but with a more animal friendly approach.
