our PAPERS

 

ARCHIVAL PAPERS

Our prints come with a Lifetime Guarantee from yellowing and fading!


 

DECKLED

If you are looking for a product that stands out, then our Deckled Prints are what you want. We hand tear the edges of the prints to give that distinct look your clients can't get on their own. We can float deckled prints in a mat as well as float them in a frame without a mat.

Deckling gives the paper a handmade appearance, which emphasizes the care and craft of our production process. We offer Deckled Prints either with a border or without a border.

CARE + HANDLING

The biggest challenge is taking care of the Museum Etching, Canson Rag and Ultra Smooth when they are loose. There are 3 things you can do to help take care of loose prints.

  1. Have us put a 1/4" border on the prints to keep the ink off the edges and to give your clients a 'non-ink' area to touch.

  2. Put vellum in-between each stacked print. For example; a set of 5x7's in a box. Put vellum between each print.

  3. Give your clients a pair of cotton gloves to slip on when handling the prints. These are affordable and you can get easily.

If you use the Platine or Satin papers, then you don't need to be as cautious. They will stand up to more handling than the Museum Etching, Canson Rag and Ultra Smooth.
