    Video runs to about a minute then shuts down? Is this happening on my end.
    Wanted to share with customers I do paper school training for new employees.
    Thank you

    Nice idea but I can’t get it to play. Tried three times. 🙁

    The video stops and starts, images pause then jump around.
    I cannot use this on our website since the video is far too flaky.

    Please have an expert in video creation review and correct the errors.

    The whole video is useless — and we wanted to promote paper usage on our website.

    Wonderful short explanation. I worked in a paper mill during my college summer vacations and this was like a trip back in time for me. All that was missing was the heat and the noise level and I don’t miss them! I enjoyed this movie very much..

    This is a good basic quick video on how paper is made. I like the fact that it’s 3 1/2 minutes. I am the Web Press classroom trainer and intend to use this when covering paper. Thanks for sending it to us!

    Very good video explanation–we’ll put it on our Facebook feed. I do wish it included information on the coatings applied to create coated stocks. Also, in this day and age of environmental concern, it would have been valuable for you to indicate how you make all that water nice and clean again as the good environmental stewards I am sure you are.

    This is the best video I’ve seen by our cousins – the industrial papermakers – to show how paper is made on the large scale. We’ll be sharing it widely!

    I always wished we could’ve made a video like – Mohawk’s Paper Mill and Arnold and his Papermill(TM) – to show how hand papermaking exactly mirrors the steps industry uses to form, press and dry sheets while we had Arnold, one of paper’s biggest fans.

    Anyway, thanks so much for this!

    Just stumbled across this video and Wow! We work with Mohawk papers on a daily basis and you can always count on them for both a quality and consistent product. It’s great to see how they work their magic! You’d never think that so much work goes in to making something as simple as paper. Great job guys!

    I will be sharing this!
