What is a Watermark?
 
Watermarks are the impressions of wire figures. The oldest known watermarks were found on Italian paper made in Bologna in the 13th century. Many believe that watermarks were accidentally discovered by an Italian papermaker who overlooked a piece of wire on his sieve. Since that time, they have been used throughout history to depict everything from family crests to religious, mystic, worldly and, most recently, corporate symbols.
