Our Papers

The collection paper we stock is one of the most important assets to our company, they’re what you see when you get your prints from us, here’s some more information about the type of papers we use for our Giclée printing.

What are your papers made from?

The majority of the fine art papers we use are made from either cotton or alpha cellulose, with the exception of Bamboo which is 90% bamboo and 10% recycled cotton.

Who makes your paper?

The majority of our papers are made by Hahnemühle in Germany, they’ve been producing paper for over 400 years and their range of papers for digital printing is unrivalled.

From our mid range fine art papers, Somerset Enhanced Velvet 255gsm is made here in the UK by St Cuthberts Mill, they’ve been making paper for over 300 years and as well as producing paper for digital printing, they also make artist paper ranges like Bockingford, Millford and Saunders Waterford.

Introduced in 2019, Rag Photographique and Baryta Photographique are made by French paper manufacturers Canson Infinity.

Our Matt Ultra 240gsm and Smooth Pearl 290gsm papers are made by Fotospeed.

How long will my prints last?

As long as you look after them, they’ll last 80-100 years or more, some of our papers have tested to over 125-150 years. Prints should be kept away from direct sunlight and damp conditions.

Can you print on the back of your papers?

No, I’m afraid we cannot print on the back of any of our fine art and photographic papers, they’re only coated on one side and so the printer ink doesn’t take to the uncoated side.

What is the largest paper size you can print on?

All our papers are available on 44in (1118mm) rolls, this gives us the ability to produce very large prints.

Can you print on any papers not listed on your website?

Yes we can. If you require a specific paper that we do not stock in our range, please let us know what it is and we’ll try and source it for you. We may apply a minimum print run, or minimum order value for your order.
