Re: Stonehenge Black

I think the 'problems' Gordon may be alluding to may tie back to Jeremy's original post and mention of the "future is up in the air" with respect to Rising Stonehenge. This is true. As has been reported widely the Rising mill that made this paper has been closed. The rights to the paper, or probably more accurately the name of the paper were sold, but it's anybody's guess if the paper will continue to be the same as it has been. So, if you rely on this paper in any color it's a good time to place an order while stocks still remain.

Gord, I'm just checking to see if anyone has tried printing on the black
stonehenge before I place an order for 10-15 sheets. I'm thinking I
shouldn't have any problems, though, as people have used white/natural
stonehenge for printing w/ gum before, but wanted to check.
