You can buy A3 vellum for 60p a sheet.

I'm afraid that Chapati Paul plus A3 vellum plus regular folding with no deterioration to the paper edges indicates, to me anyway, something not quite, um, right.

I had something like this as a kid - but at least it wasn't advertised as original then, but then neither are these.....

beware.

Hi Dizz,

No doubt that some of the UK documents are OK. Anything being shipped out from overseas has to be viewed suspiciously. Many of these documents, if genuine, wouldn't get an export licence.
