Re: [BKARTS] Cutters



Rupert,

I beg to disagree with you that the grain is the long measurment on the
sheet.  Grain can vary. The grain of machine made paper is the length of the
roll as opposed to the width. So, however the mill cuts it out determines the
grain on the sheet.  Most paper today does begin with the grain direction
being the longest measurement. The key word there is most. 8 1/2 x 11 Copy
paper is often short grain to accomodate passing over rollers or drums more
easily without the benefit of a guide.  Usually the grain direction is the
first measurment mentioned.

Regards,
Ed
