    what kind of quoins and key are you looking for?  How large of a composing stick are you needing? I have plenty of both- just let me know and I will quote the items for you.

    Contact Fritz Klinke at NA Graphics.  He sold me a replacement chase for a Kelsey model U

    Hey Camilla, I have pressed on both sides of muscletone and while it is certainly capable of handling the impression, I would caution you and trying to press too much into the paper.  It definitely leaves a mark on the reverse, which is completely fine for a 1 sided piece, but can be troublesome for 2 sided.  

    In terms of what I personally use for a 2 sided impression, I generally default to Lettra 220# because you can get a deep impression on both sides while not making transferring too much on the reverse.  

    What are your thoughts on Muscletone and 2 sided impressions?

    I absolutely love French Paper Muscletone as well!  It’s firm enough to hold a nice, deep impression as well as soft enough to not feel like cardboard.  I generally use their 140# stock and for the money, you honestly can’t beat it!  In fact, from all the leftover paper we have in our shop, I always reach for the remaining French Paper to run my personal projects!
