The paper mills here in Scandinavia makes paper for printing which
is lignin free, contains 2% calcium carbonate, is neutral sized and
has a pH at least at 7.5. Also I see that Stora Nymxlle in Sweden
makes TCF paper (no chlorine in the production) which meets the
standards.  The prices are cheap here.  A 100 grams 64 x 90 cms cost
$70 for a parcel with 250 sheet.  I recommend this sort of paper for
packaging of acidic paper.
