Wood paper

Wood fibers are cleaned with water, then sent to the pulping process where more water is used to separate the fibers from one another. Spreading the fibers out along a moving belt of wire mesh, heat and pressure slowly removes the water. The final dry product is rolled, or calendared, and then cut to size depending on its final use.

Paper made from wood pulp is less expensive and less durable than cotton/rag paper. It becomes brittle or yellow with age. It is typically used for one time use or short lifetime documents.
