Paper and Canvas

*To see our paper pricing chart, go here.

Choosing the appropriate paper or canvas is a personal choice. Sometimes, multiple papers work for the same image. The tone, weight and surface texture depends on the subject, the mood and how you, the artist, want it perceived. We offer many choices that are sparked by customer demands and staff preferences. Feel free to ask for suggestions from our staff when you are not sure. We can explain the benefits of each of our offerings and are always looking at new printing papers and canvas that can improve the experience for the artist and convey the message that was intended. We try to carry fine art papers that have no obtical brightner additives (OBA's). OBA's offer a brighter white, but will change over time.


PHOTO PAPER


Sunset Photo Matte Lexjet 

This is an economical fine-art and photo paper. Labeled as an 'economical choice' the paper has surprised us and become a favorite staff pick. It has rich blacks and a bright white base that brings photos to life. It has a smooth surface, acid free, ph-neutral and is archival. (Tier 1)

Weight: 280gsm I  Thickness: 12 mil

Sunset Photo Satin Lexjet

Similar to its matte brother above, this satin paper is sold as an economical fine-art and photo paper. We think it has a really nice quality weight and feel, but it's priced fairly economically. It sports rich blacks, and adds a subtle shine that adds distinctive depth to photos. It has a smooth surface, acid free, ph-neutral and is archival. (Tier 1)

Weight: 300gsm I  Thickness: 11 mil

Sunset Photo Metallic Lexjet

This is a really fun paper. The metallic finish adds a little something special but it's notoverpowering. The metallic, high-gloss surface photo paper give you prints that are sharp and vibrant. This is a great one paper for gifts or a print that you'd like to stand out. (Tier 2)

Weight: 255gsm I  Thickness: 10 mil

Palo Duro Soft Gloss Rag – Red River

This is a relatively new paper to us. We chose it on our search for a paper that will match up to a traditional silver halide darkroom print. It really holds up to the hype as our intitial testing has amazed the entire crew. The only bad so far is that it is extremely fragile. The good is that it is a neutral white, heavy weight and feel, 100% cotton rag. The medium textured soft gloss surface truly looks amazing. (Tier 2)

Weight: 310gsm I  Thickness: 16.5 mil

SanGabriel Baryta Red River

This paper has a semi-gloss finish, and a warm tone that adds natural richness to portraits and landscapes. The surface is lightly textured and gives a nice depth to photos. Black and white photos look great on this paper, with super rich blacks and bright whites. This paper has a nice high-end look and feel, making it great choice for shows or exhibitions. (Tier 3)

Weight: 315gsm I  Thickness: 12.2 mil

 


FINE ART SMOOTH


Aurora Natural Art – Red River

This paper is best for art reproduction and black white photography. The bright colors pop with art repro and b&w images can have a soft, lower contrast look. For color prints, this paper can get a muddy look in the shadows and middle tones so we recommend the Epson Hot Press Natural as a better option. (Tier 1)

Weight: 250gsm I  Thickness: 13.5 mil

Hot Press Natural – Epson

Everything looks good on this paper. It has a warm look that invites you into the image and is an outstanding choice for portraits. The ultra smooth surface works well with photography or art that has fine details that you want to stand out. The warm tone can add a nostalgic look to color or black and white photography. (Tier 2)

Weight: 300gsm I  Thickness: 16 mil

Hot Press Bright White – Epson

This is similar to the natural version of this paper, with the base color being a brighter white.  The ultra smooth surface works well with photography or art that has fine details that you want to stand out.  The image pops with added contrast of this paper due to the “whiter” whites. (Tier 2)

Weight: 300gsm I  Thickness: 16 mil

Speckletone French Paper | Available in Starch White and Kraft 

Ok, we'll admit - we are totally smitten with this paper company. That's why we offer so many French paper options. This Speckletone is a recycled paper that features flecks and shives - meaning it has little specks. French says they invented this paper to inspire, and let us tell you - we are inspired. French also says this paper has "rugged good looks" and we couldn't agree more. Let us know if you'd like a sample! (Tier 1)

Weight: 100 lb. cover I  Thickness: 15 mil

Construction French Paper  | Available in Pure White (FPC1), Whitewash (FPC2), Grout Gray (FPC3), Cement Green (FPC4), Steel Blue (FPC5), Factory Green (FPC6), Fuse Green (FPC7), Safety Orange (FPC8), and Brick Red (FPC9).

We went crazy over this paper. It's a smooth, sturdy paper that makes a great foundation for 1, 2 or 3 color prints. We do have it in a couple of white tones, but we also offer it in several colors. We think these colored papers look awesome with black and white high-contrast photos, but the possibilities are endless. You can get really creative with this stuff. Just ask if you'd like to have a sample - once you see it you'll catch our excitement. (Tier 1)

Weight: 100 lb. cover I  Thickness: 15 mil

 


FINE ART WITH SUBTLE TEXTURE


Photo Rag – Hahnemuhle

We offer this paper due to reveiws that we have read and the positive vibe from photographers all over. We are so happy to offer such a snappy paper, it really handles contrasty images with ease. When you pick it up and see how the slight texture catches the light, you've got to put a smile on. RICH PAPER! (Tier 3)

Weight: 310gsm I  Thickness: 0.5mm

Bamboo – Hahnemuhle

Another new natural paper to us, Tony is in love with it. We have been anxious to try such an eco friendly offering. We thought that there was no way that something good for the environment would perform so well. 90% bamboo fibres and 10% cotton, archival, wide color gamut, color gradation and image sharpness are on par with any paper that we have seen to date. The subtle texture feels smooth to the touch while the solids are strong and highlights are so creamy. Try something different, go with the bamboo. (Tier 3)

Weight: 290gsm I  Thickness: .5mm

 


FINE ART TEXTURED


Sunset Velvet Rag – Lexjet

100 % cotton rag – A cross between German Etching and Somerset Velvet - etching texture with a soft subtle feel. We tried this with a client that works in water color for his latest art reproduction. He loves the reproduction of his art, colors "so vibrant".  We used this paper with his pen and ink sketches and wow, it looks like the original. (Tier 2)

Weight: 300gsm I  Thickness: 16 mil

Sunset Textured Fine Art – Lexjet

Cold pressed textured matte – A natural white paper that can add a painterly feel to photographs and give watercolor, pencil and pen and ink reproductions that "original" look and feel. We recently used it with a new client on his first reproduction work, he was so happy with the results. (Tier 2)

Weight: 310gsm I  Thickness: 16 mil

Sunset Bright White Velvet – Lexjet

100 % cotton rag – A cross between German Etching and Somerset Velvet - etching texture with a soft subtle feel. This paper should appeal to the fine art photographer that wants to add texture to their work and keep the colors popping and black and white tones strong. This is the same paper as the Velvet Rag, but has brighteners added to give a hotter white. (Tier 2)

Weight: 300gsm I  Thickness: 16 mil

German Etching – Hahnemuhle

This is a cellulose mold made paper that is chroline free. It is natural in color and gives a really nice warm tone to art and photography.  It is one of the most popular papers for art reproduction. We have many clients that will print on nothing else. We have one photography client that fell in love with this paper years ago and won't consider another option. It resembles a traditional etching board and makes every print "frame worthy." (Tier 3)

Weight: 310gsm I  Thickness: 0.50 mm

 


CANVAS


Matte Canvas – Breathing Color

Superior dmax and with the proper matte coating, prints wonderfully. Bright white without OBA's. Archival and sharp sharp in the details. (Tier 3)

Weight: 450gsm I  Thickness: 19 mil

Gloss Canvas – Inova

The consistent weave pattern of this canvas makes this a good choice for portraiture giving a smooth gradation when printing. This canvas prints as good and evenly as any satin paper on the market. It is a joy to work with. (Tier 3)

Weight: 380gsm I  Thickness: 16 mil
