10 ​A.I.J.P Inkjet Paper​ Collections

SERIES 01
KOZO

‘Kozo’ (mulberry) has the basic look of Japanese washi with extreme durability and the subtle beauty that kozo fibers afford. Kozo is recommended for photographic prints, high-end reproductions and original works of fine art and is particularly well suited for prints/reproductions of Asian-style works.

Kozo is a traditional material used to make washi, and the fibres are long and thick resulting in a strong paper with excellent archival qualities.  Additionally, Kozo feels soft but is extremely durable.
A special coating has been added to reduce the bleed characteristics that is often found with all other kozo-based paper.

How to cleanly separate Kozo Double Layered paper

Kozo Double Layered was created in order to make available an exceptionally thin archival printable paper that can be fed into printers. By making this as a double-layered paper that can be be peeled apart after printing, we have made this possible. Kozo Double Layers printing surface is 100% kozo, and the removable ‘carrier’ sheet is made from wood pulp. The printable kozo sheet is ideal for printing replicas of ancient works, for backlit artworks and for mounting on scrolls for example.

Step 1: Insert a Blade

By inserting a utility knife or other blade between the sheets, the paper can easily be peeled apart. After the initial blade separation, pull slowly and with even force on both sides in order to separate the paper cleanly.

Step 2: Remove backing paper by rolling

After peeling the first several centimeters by hand, use a tube or rod (near in width as the paper) to roll up the backing sheet…smoothly and evenly thus separating it from the printable kozo sheet.

Step 3: Roll it up uniformly

In order to ensure that both left and right sides are removed evenly, you may want to roll up both sides simultaneously. When rolling, hold the tube at a 45-degree angle from the paper and lift it off the table when rolling to avoid damaging the printed surface.
