Paper

We are happy to review the specs and advantages of our paper selection to best suit your image. 

Photo Paper

Exhibition Fiber and Baryta

Fiber and Baryta photo papers are designed to replicate the look and feel of silver halide or gelatin darkroom photo papers. These inkjet papers are extremely popular with those looking to create a wet process look. Fiber and Baryta papers are also known for their ability to reproduce beautiful black and white photographs. The technical benefits of the Baryta layer include greater detail and definition, extended tonal range and excellent archival properties. An excellent choice for deep blacks and subtle tonal gradations, suitable for advanced black-and-white printing. 

Luster

Ultra Premium Luster Photo Paper is an instant drying paper that produces vivid images that rival those of traditional silver halide prints, and its RC base gives prints a photographic feel. Ultra Premium Luster Photo Paper delivers highly saturated prints by offering maximum ink coverage and a high D-Max for true photographic reproductions. 

Pictorico 

The Pro Ultra Premium OHP Transparency Film from Pictorico offers a transparent medium designed to produce crisp, easy-to-read text and brilliant, smudge & water-resistant images. It can be used for anything from overhead transparencies to making screen & contact prints.

Pearl

FineArt Pearl Paper has a special coating that provides a pearl-like appearance. The paper can be used with both dye-based and pigment-based ink systems. The paper brings out contrasts in both black and white as well as in color prints and is ideal for photographic and fine art reproduction, digital art, presentation prints, albums, and greeting cards.

Cotton Paper

All of the following options are acid and lignin free 100 % cotton rag archival grade paper.

Hot Press (Smooth) Matte

Cold Press (Textured) Matte

This Matte Paper is an acid-free, 100% cotton rag media. This paper has an extremely-high color gamut and black density.

A hot press paper has a smooth velvety surface, while a cold press paper has a rough surface with more tooth. 

 

The rough texture can mask some of the pixelation that would be glaringly apparent on a glossy photo paper. They are also useful for landscapes with cloudless skies, an undesirable situation for photographers.

 

These fine art papers are not only acid, lignin, and chlorine free, it is also pH buffered with calcium carbonate.

 

Velvet Fine Art

With a base that is 100% cotton rag, buffered and acid-free, this paper is coated with an Enhanced Matte coating, giving exceptional color gamut and high D-Max. The velvet surface is a favorite of photographers and artists alike, offering a unique museum quality feel.

 

This option of matte paper is a bit more textured than the Cold Press and much thinner. 

Watercolor

With a traditional textured matte surface reminiscent of watercolor paper will help photographers create unique prints. Highly textured, mold-formed paper made of 100% cotton fiber material.
