Uniformity—Paper manufacturing is not an exact science but is controlled by varying conditions, hence different lots of the same paper may vary slightly in color, finish and general appearance. Therefore, colors and finishes cannot be guaranteed and absolute uniformity should not be expected.

Your inquiries are invited, and you may be assured that we will endeavor to be worthy of your business.

Mill Claim Sampling Instructions—Every effort must be made to obtain a representative sample of printed and unprinted paper. In cases where a sample of satisfactory, as well as unsatisfactory paper is available, it is highly desirable that it also be submitted for comparative purposes. The following methods of sampling unprinted papers are recommended.
a. Skids, Cases, Cartons: Take ten CONSECUTIVE sheets from the original package as received from the mill. These should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they occurred in the package. The sample should be taken from down in the package (at least one inch) to avoid the effects of room humidity, dirt, etc. Identify top sheet of sample  by grade, basis  weight, order number, skid, case or carton number. Ship well packaged flat, or in mailing tube.
b. Rolls: After soiled paper has been stripped from roll, tear off six rounds of paper taking at least a 14 inch strip across the width of the roll from each round of paper. Identify by grade, basis weight, order number and roll number. It is important that paper which has lost its original finish through atmospheric exposure be removed before sample is taken.
The following method of sampling printed papers is recommended.
Obtain a sample of the printed sheet showing the original defect, plus several consecutive samples showing effect on printing thereafter. In the case of dirt packing out, obtain sample of original defect and sufficient unprinted paper to permit an examination of 200 sq. ft. of the paper in question. Identify by grade, basis weight, order number, skid, case, or carton  number.
Claims for damaged blankets must be accompanied by the damaged blanket and evidence of cause of damage. If there is a build-up on blanket, remove with cellophane tape and submit on glass or clear substance (Acetate).
Cutting Tolerances—Although JC Paper will endeavor to cut all orders to exact measurements, the following practice for cutting is now in effect.
Final sheet size ±1/32” from exact measurement.
Parent sheet cut down with no waste ±1/16” from exact measurement.
