THE ART OF FINE PAPER
Our choice of paper represents who we are as artists. In addition to most commonly used papers, we have selected additional options for you based on affordability, quality, durability, archivability, branding, and arguably most important, the look and feel of the paper. In addition to excellent quality papers we are excited to offer our favorite paper, the Hahnemühle. Hahnemühle is the world's leading producer of coated papers for inkjet printing, and has been around since the late sixteenth century. Their brand has cache and the quality of their papers is undeniable.
