TARA paper has been used by HTA for four colour offset printing, by MAPIN publishers for limited edition books, and reputed printers for screen, offset and foil stamping.

TARA Bond papers

Hand made paper has for long been considered as an alternative, where standardisation of quality and performance could not be guaranteed. The technology for manufacture of TARA bond paper (80 GSM to 150 GSM) assures highest quality of the product. TARA bond paper; which is available in A4 and higher sizes, is recommended for use in laser printers and Xerox machines. It is recommended that the use of paper is specified while ordering the paper. Decorative handmade paper containing silk, jute or wool fibres, is not recommended for use in electronic machines.
