Our Paper Types
We have carefully selected our Press Papers and Photographic Papers for their superior quality and image reproduction. Press Papers are available in various textures and thicknesses. Because our liquid inks sink into the Press Paper rather than sit on top, each piece retains the tactile quality of the paper as well as the integrity of the printed image. Photographic Papers are light sensitive and reproduce images with completely smooth colors and gradients. Our Photographic Papers are professional-grade only for amazing color, longevity and sharpness.
