There are no water marks in this paper when parent sized sheets are ordered
directly from Crane's. I'm assuming that you mean there are water marks in
the cut sheets of the Cranes 8.5 x 11 NW Cover #90 but there are none in
those either.

I believe the Cranes Kid finish Ecru and White #25 do have the annoying
water marks but it is a nice paper for small prints.
