FINE ART PRINTING PAPERS
We offer a selection of fine art printing papers in our studio ensuring final printed work matches the intentions of the image maker. Listed below is an introduction to each paper, samples can be seen at the studio. We can accommodate printing on other available papers, contact us for further information.
All papers have been custom profiled to ensure accuracy and full use of a paper's traits.
Whilst all digital printmaking papers have a size coating designed to accept ink, papers designed for use with Photo Black Ink have a more discernibly coated surface with resulting prints akin to a traditional photographic print. Papers using the Matte Black Ink have a velvet matte surface more resembling an traditional press made printmaking work.
We have sample prints of all stocks available to view in our studio.
