I love French, haven’t tried the Reich Savoy paper yet, and Mohawk is also nice as far as I’ve seen. I love Lettra, and lately French has served my needs for both really great colors (construction) and sturdy (muscletone) for what we’re doing. It’s great both for screen print and letterpress.

I would guess that it was overinked, and probably difficult to clean. Stiffer ink might also help. I was having hazy impressions and found that it wasn’t rollers, packing, my lack of a frisket bar, but in actuality it was the platen bolts being loose. Once I tightened them, all of the sudden the press printed perfectly.
