We are often asked What is the difference between Short Grain and Long Grain? In this quick video we will show you the difference in Real Wood Paper Grain Directions.
When you bend with the grain, our wood paper sheets are more flexible. When you bend against the grain, our wood paper sheets are more rigid. So depending on your particular project and use, grain direction can be a very important consideration.
