Wood grain paper and card stock is heavily embossed on one side of the sheet only. This results in rich, defined, texture on one side and subtle remnants of this texture on the other. See below.

    1. Hi Roland,

      The reverse side of Bubinga (brown wood grain) is the same as the front, and unfortunately we have no way of changing this into another color.
