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.
...I worked with Image Science a few times in 2014 for my Australian exhibitions and I have always appreciated the incredible knowledge and level of customer service you have provided. Your Website was already a truly formidable resource but after I saw the redesign just now, I'm completely amazed and I just wanted to let you all know that you've done a truly wonderful job of it. It's so nice just to stare at it and I look forward to exploring it all further...
