5. How should I handle my fine art prints ?
Your prints are “fine art”. This means that they need to be handled accordingly. Treat them as though they were an original painting. This means they should be stored away from moisture and direct sunlight.

9. Should I choose the watercolour paper or the smooth fine art paper ?
Both papers are very similar in terms of weight, longevity and print quality. The main difference is that the watercolour paper has a slight texture that gives is a more artistic feel.
Our smooth fine art paper is more traditional and is more suitable for reproducing photographs, especially those where the subject is people. Both papers are matte and close to 300gsm.
