    justified the term

    Hi

    He wrote on thick smooth paper which justified the term ‘cream-laid".

    Does it mean "which was rightly called cream-laid"?

    Thanks

    The qualities of the paper showed that there was a good reason for the name of the paper to be "cream-laid".

    What is cream laid paper? definition and meaning

    PS I would add that he's taking the name of the paper literally and equating "thick and smooth" with cream.

    I guess. I'm not in the printing business. But that's the actual name for a kind of paper. The link above had a definition.

    Here's a store that sells paper: Cream Laid 100gsm A4 Paper *




    *But what color you see there depends on your computer.
