Bond is an uncoated paper with a matt finish. The lack of sheen means there’s no distraction from the printed content.

It has an even feel and looks smooth to the eye, but Bond paper has a subtle texture that gives it character.

The result is a greater, more porous surface area that helps it take on inks from either the press or the pen.

It gets its name from being the preferred paper type for government bonds and other legal and official documents.
