What paper should I choose?

Fine art papers are an ideal choice because they are excellent at reproducing images with a wide color gamut, including a vast array of subtle blacks and transitions to grey and white.  Fine art papers tend to be heavier in GSM, meaning they feel substantial when you physically handle them or hand them to a client, in addition to being less likely to tear or warp then thinner papers.  Most importantly, our fine art papers are museum quality, meaning that they are archival, acid free papers that are guaranteed to last more than a lifetime.  Click here to learn more about our fine art paper options.

If an economical solution is your priority, we supply photographic paper options in matte, luster and glossy that offer high quality reproduction of your photographic images.  These come in the form of Epson Enhanced Matte Photo Paper, Epson Premium Luster Photo Paper, and Epson High Gloss Photo Paper.
