german etching

310gsm Textured

This is our most popular art paper that mimics the surface texture and warmth of tradtional watercolour paper. It is a 310gsm mould made 100% a-cellulose paper that, together with our Ultrachrome inks, guarantees archival standards.

Perfect choice for reproduction of art using acrylic or watercolour paints or photographs with that 'painterly' quality.


photo rag

300gsm Smooth

This is a smooth finish cotton rag paper, not unlike a smooth cartridge paper, that particularly lends itself to reproductions of etchings, illustrations and pencil drawings but really its scope is much broader that that. Another archival quality paper with a 300gsm weight.

Perfect choice: botanical illustration, etching, sketches...

Harman Fibre Gloss 320gsm

Traditional fibre-base BW papers came in a variety of surfaces and gloss could either be finished glazed or unglazed for a high gloss or soft gloss result. ( Later resin cloated paper produced a much glossier finish ) We have selected Harmans' 300gsm baryta paper that gives an impressive depth of colour with a surface very similar to unglazed gloss: almost as though a light varnish had been applied.


titanium paperPermajet Titanium 280gsm

Titanium Lustre is a new silver metallic paper from PermaJet. Unlike most other metallic papers which are constructed by simply adding an ink receiving layer on top of a metallic film, PermaJet Titanum Lustre uses a resin coated base, in the same way as PermaJet Gloss, Oyster and Ultra Pearl papers do. By using a silver resin base, rather than white resin base, PermaJet has managed to produce a stunning metallic-effect paper like no other.


panoramic

Canvas Wraps

We only use a true fabric canvas for printing as opposed to textured paper or card. Images are printed onto top quality canvas, a UV protective coating is applied and the canvas then stretched onto top quality Russell & Chapple frames. The 'stretch' is then applied by using the traditonal method of wooden wedges. The pre-cut sizes can be mixed and matched to make square or panoramic shapes and the image is normally wrapped around the edge: 36mm deep. Sizes range from 10" to 40" are stocked


harman

Fuji Photo Satin and Gloss 260gsm

A top quality giclee paper in either pearl or gloss: the pearl finish is the most popular for large prints and is the perfect choice in terms of colour accuracy and saturation. Perfect for reproducing photographs when they will be viewed in a frame, albums or as exhibition panels .
