FINE ART PAPER COLLECTION

Hahnemuhle Photo Rag® Satin (310gsm)

Hahnemuhle Photo Rag® Satin is a 100% cotton rag museum-quality white paper that features a delicately textured matte surface which is characterized by its unique satin coating that produces a beautiful sense of depth and a soft feel.  While unprinted areas of these prints remain matte in appearance, printed areas have a subtle satin sheen that beautifully accentuates brilliance and a subtle luminosity.

Photo Rag® Satin uses a moderate quantity of OBA content to achieve 92% whiteness, is acid- and lignin-free, and is calcium carbonate buffered for longevity and very high water resistance.  With its premium satin inkjet coating Photo Rag® Satin meets the highest ISO 9706 industry standards regarding density, color gamut, color graduation, and image sharpness while preserving the special touch and feel of genuine art paper.

Canson® Infinity Rag Photographique (310gsm)

Canson® Infinity Rag Photographique is a 100% cotton museum-grade white Fine Art and photo paper. The exceptional smooth white tone is achieved during manufacturing by introducing natural minerals to the process. It has been developed to address the need for continued longevity requirements in the Digital Fine Art market.  Rag Photographique offers a unique extra smooth surface with a sensual feel. It also provides one of the highest achievable Dmax currently available on the market, making it ideal for fine art photography as well as fine art printmaking

Rag Photographique achieves a brightness rating of 89.8% while using no optical brightening agents to ensure consistency of shades for generations, and is designed to meet gallery/museum longevity requirements and respect the ISO 9706 standard.  It is internally buffered to resist gas fading and maximize the conservation of your prints, acid-free certified to avoid paper degradation, and water resistant.

This paper is the combination of the premium 100% cotton Platinum paper that Canson has supplied for many years to the original Platinum and Platine photographic market, with the latest microporous coating, making the traditional darkroom paper now available for your digital printing.

Platine Fibre Rag’s extremely high Dmax and exceptional gray tones make it the product of choice for the more discerning black and white as well as color photographic prints.  Rated to meet the ISO 9706 industry standards, this paper is internally buffered to resist fading, acid-free certified to avoid paper degradation, and has a high water resistance.

FINE ART PAPER FINISHING OPTIONS

Additional borders

White space can be added outside of your image size, increasing the overall dimensions of the paper.  This finishing option is available for all fine art paper prints and is available in a range of standard and custom widths:

 

  • Borderless:  This is the default border option and is recommended for prints that are intended to go directly into a frame with no matting.  Your image goes to the edge of the paper with no additional white border.
  • ½” Additional Border:  This option is recommended for prints that are intended to go into a frame with matting, as the additional white space allows for more room to mount and mat the print without encroaching on the image itself.  Please note:  Adding a ½” white border increases the dimensions of your paper size by a total of 1” on both the height and width.  For instance, an 8×10 image with an additional ½” border would become a 9×11 piece of paper with an 8×10 image in the center.
  • 1” Additional Border:  This option is recommended for small fine art reproductions, as the additional space protects the edges of your image, allows room for signing and numbering the print, and provides ease in mounting/matting the print without encroaching on your signature.  Please note:  Adding a 1” white border increases  the dimensions of your paper size by a total of 2” on both the height and width.  For instance, an 8×10 with an additional 1” border would become a 10×12 piece of paper with an 8×10 image in the center.
  • Custom:  Custom border widths are recommended for prints of custom dimensions that you wish to make into a standard size without cropping, or for any custom border widths not listed above.

Deckled Edge

A deckled edge mimics the natural edge of handmade papers, for a more artisanal look than the standard straight-cut edge.  This finishing option is available only for 100% cotton rag fine art papers:  Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Satin, Canson Rag Photographique, Canson Platine Fibre Rag, Epson Hot Press Bright, and Epson Cold Press Bright.  Order prints with a deckled edge using our Custom Print Orders form.

Dry Mounting

Dry mounting provides support to your fine art print and prevents framed prints from rippling or sagging over time.  The dry mounting process adheres the print to the substrate using adhesive, which cannot be reversed without damaging the print.  This finishing option is only recommended for images that can be replicated.  Order dry mounting using our Custom Print Orders form.  Available in the following options:
