Bible Paper is an extremely thin, lightweight, opaque Printing Paper with a basic size of 25 by 38 inches. This specialty paper is generally made from 25% cotton and linen rags or flax. It is a premium grade of book paper that typically has a long life. Its thinness and light weight make it ideal for use in large books with many pages including dictionaries and encyclopedias, which would be bulkier and heavier if they were printed on lesser grades of book paper.
Bible paper is suitable for offset printing-specifically text, four-color process, tritone and duotones. Digital files are created as they are for any weight of paper, and images can be printed with the usual screen settings. However, where heavy ink coverage is called for, graphic artists (or their commercial printers) should use under color removal on the images.
Because it is so lightweight and thin, this paper is difficult to work with. It is hard to handle and easily damaged. Extreme care must be taken with it at every stage of the production process. Because of this, printed projects destined for bible paper often carry a price premium to cover the additional handling and spoilage that occur.
Groundwood is used in economy Bible editions. It has a brownish color to it, and the paper becomes yellow and brittle in time. It is thicker than the other two grades of bible paper and it not recommended for high-quality projects.
Free Sheet is the grade most often used in Bibles. The paper is whiter than the groundwood grade, and it contains wood. To increase the opacity necessary for such thin paper, titanium dioxide is added to the paper to refract light. This paper is thinner than groundwood and costs more. However, it is recommended for most uses.
Because it is so thin, the sheets of bible paper are not as stiff as most papers, and the page edges may curl. Also, opacity (or lack thereof and any accompanying bleed-through) is a major concern when using bible paper.
