Once made from animal skins, Parchment Paper is now achieved by treating a high density plant-based paper from cellulose fibers with sulfuric acid. Parchment paper is characterized by a hard surface, high wet-strength, resistance to grease and dirt. Typical applications for Parchment Paper include menus, certificates, awards, wedding invitations, and other important documents, embossing, rubber stamp, and offset printing. Lamp shades are sometimes made from Parchment Paper. Parchment Paper duplicates the appearance of ancient, historical documents to convey a theme of antiquity and importance. Ideal for calligraphy writing or to enhance the presentation of framed documents such as poetry or genealogy charts. Other applications include cooking and baking sheet pan liners (Baking Parchment Paper, Cooking Parchment Paper) as Parchment Paper will not burn like Wax Paper or Standard grease-proof paper.
