Companies Making Nothing but Alkaline Paper

A complete list of U.S. companies making one or more alkaline or neutral papers is in the March Alkaline Paper Advocate, and will be maintained by updates and revisions in future issues. It does not include papers made by foreign companies; alkaline papers not used in publishing or office work; or private brands (papers made to order for a distributor or retailer).

The list below includes ail U.S. companies that are "100% alkaline." Their paper may be sold either through local distributors or the company's sales offices, or both; call the company to learn the name of the nearest outlet.

No effort has been made at the editorial office to test the papers listed for compliance with standards of permanence, but all are assumed to contain calcium carbonate because the general practice is to include it with alkaline paper; in fact, paper is generally made alkaline in the first place so that calcium carbonate can be used in it.
