A watermark is a subtle image permanently impressed into paper during the manufacturing process. It identifies the source of the sheet and may contain, for instance, the paper mill’s trademark or the brand name of the paper. Watermarks signal high quality paper and are symbols of authenticity and distinction in business and personal correspondence.
A watermark is made by impressing a “dandy roll”—a light roller covered by a water-coated material embossed with a pattern–onto the paper during manufacturing. To view a watermark, hold the paper to the light. It will be lightly visible as a delicate pattern of density variations in the paper.
When putting watermarked paper in a printer, be sure to feed it so that the watermark is right side up and readable.
