Description

A popular lighter weight textured paper option ideal for reproduction of watercolours and softer photographic works.  

The texture is moderate and regular (the paper is mould made so the texture comes from the grid like structure of the mould) and combined with the papers rigidity it makes the paper feel heftier than it's 210 weight would suggest.

Best for images where you're looking for the texture of the paper to come through and add substance to your image.

Albrecht Dürer was a 15/16th century painter and printmaker, most famous for his engravings and woodblocks.  Certainly one of the most successful and first artists to use prints specifically to widen the reach and popularity of his artworks.  

Also famous for being an early example of an artist incensed by copyright theft, famously writing these forceful words directed at would be thieves:

Hold! You crafty ones, strangers to work, and pilferers of other men’s brains. Think not rashly to lay your thievish hands upon my works. Beware! Know you not that I have a grant from the most glorious Emperor Maximillian, that not one throughout the imperial dominion shall be allowed to print or sell fictitious imitations of these engravings? Listen! And bear in mind that if you do so, through spite or through covetousness, not only will your goods be confiscated, but your bodies also placed in mortal danger.

Specifications

Please note: Specifications are provided as a guide only.

We try very hard to keep these up to date and correct, but if a particular specification is really critical to you, then please double check the specification directly with the manufacturer. Some features may of course have caveats not fully described here.

To get more information about a particular specification, use the arrow to get a 'Specxplanation'.

  • Construction
    Fibre Based

    Papers are constructed in two main ways:

    Resin Coated papers are the modern approach. These use less fibre and replace the fibre with resin (a nice name for plastic). This means these papers are cheap, strong and robust, but tend to be less attractive to the touch and accept less ink. They tend to have a clinical appearance and it's hard to write on the back of them. They tend to be popular in the consumer and wedding/portrait markets.

    Fibre Based papers are traditional papers made without plastic, using only plant fibres. These tend to accept more ink and have a more attractive appearance, and these are the papers most of our customers favour.

  • Substrate
    50% Cotton 50% Alpha Cellulose

    What is the paper base made from?

    Possibilities include:

    • Wood Pulp - the most common and cheapest
    • Alpha Cellulose - the best part of wood pulp, separated. Generally tested as archival as cotton etc
    • Cotton - the most common fine art paper fibre
    • Bamboo - an ecologically friendly alternative to cotton
    • Mulberry & more - many other plant fibres can be used to make archival paper
  • Paper Weight
    210 gsm

    In 'gsm' - grams per square metre.

    Not, technically, the same as paper thickness, but obviously correlated. The heft of the paper. European art papers are traditionally generally around the 300gsm mark. Asian papers historically tended to be lighter, 100 to 200 gsm.

    Papers with a higher GSM tend to have more opacity, i.e. you see less through them.

  • Surface Texture
    Matte, Textured

    What is the surface texture of the paper?

    We divide this into six groups. We go by the appearance of the actual paper and not what the manufacturer might label the box with!

    • Matte - smooth and texture
    • Gloss - semi, gloss, and high gloss
    • Double Sided - special case papers that are printable to full quality on both sides.
  • White Tone
    White

    What is the white tone of the paper?

    • Cool White - a paper with a distinctly cool (blue) tone
    • Bright White - A paper that is brighter than non brightened papers, but not overly cool
    • White - a natural clean white tone for an art paper - most Photo Rag papers fall here
    • Warm - a distinctly warmer, creamier paper
    • Pearlescent - a distinct warm grey tone (generally found only with metallic papers)
  • Coating
    Microporous

    These days almost all papers are microporous coated - meaning they'll accept inks from both dye based and pigment printers well.

    In years past, some papers had a swellable coating - designed to give a greater life to prints with dye based inks but this approach has fallen out of favour.

  • Compatible Inks
    Pigment Inks (use matte black)
    Dye Based Inks

    What ink type (dye and/or pigments) can you use with the paper?

    Also, if using pigment inks and you have a choice, should you use the Matte Black or Photo Black ink?

  • Optical Brighteners?

    Does the paper contain chemicals in it to brighten its appearance?
