What are Pergamano & PCA Parchment Craft Grids?



Grids are used to make even and neat perforations in parchment paper. It is possible to produce a design without using a grid by planning a design on graph paper and using it as your guide. Grids can also be used for embossing and designing your own patterns.


Pergamano and ParchCraft Australia (PCA) both have grids available and you can choose which you prefer.  Try to use PCA tools with PCA Grids and Pergamano tools for Pergamano Grids.
