The Museo inkjet range was developed by Crane papers - the largest fine art paper company in the US.
The range conforms to the highest archival standards (as defined by both the Library of Congress and the ISO) - all 100% cotton rag, internally buffered (to prevent long term environmental acidification), and containing absolutely no optical brighteners.
Their papers are optimised specifically for pigment inks (although dye inks can be used as well), and they offer a small number of interesting options - Portfolio Rag, Silver Rag and Artist Cards. All excellent products at the top of their fields.
Museo Portfolio Rag is the best fine art paper made in the world today, bar none.
Museo Portfolio Rag is the stand out paper in the range and is without doubt the best matte rag smooth fine art paper in the world today - and we've tested them all. One major advantage over most others is that it has absolutely no optical brightening agents and it is coated on both sides to make it the only fine art paper that is highly resistant to curl (the coating on the back side is not a full print coating so it's not technically a double sided paper but you can certainly print text on the rear without issues).
Museo Portfolio Rag is 300gsm, smooth, and very sharp as well. It's quite simply an excellent paper for gallery quality prints. We use this ourselves as our primary matte fine art paper and roughly 80% of our printing customers choose this paper - it is adored by all who use it.
As with all products purchased from Image Science, we are able to offer lifetime support - so if you have any issues or technical enquires please feel free to contact us.

I got 2nd prize at the Julie Milliwick Photography Prize!
I wanted to thank you for doing such a fabulous job on the print. It was wonderful to see the exhibition print on the wall.
I am particularly delighted that we were able to hold so much detail in the shadows and I like the matt powdery finish. I had lots of questions about the paper.
