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.

PCA grids are all A4 size.  They are not numbered, but they come in two gauges: Bold and Fine

 

Bold straight grids

Bold diagonal grid, with PCA diagonal grids the holes are at 90 degrees.

 

Essentially they are the same as the straight grids but turned diagonally.

 

If you look at a PCA diagonal grid and tilt your head to the left you will see that it looks the same as the straight grid!

 

Fine straight grid

Fine diagonal grid (same as above)

 

ALSO

 

PCA make a honeycomb grid, which is the same as the Pergamano diagonal, with these grids the holes are offset at an angle of 60degrees.
