1. What is the difference between fine art paper and standard paper ?

Standard paper is made using crushed wood pulp. This results in a product that is not archival due to the impurities in the pulp. Fine art paper is normally much thicker and is made from archival cotton rag. This results in a product that will last 75-100 years.

2. How long will it take to produce and dispatch my fine art prints ?

Your fine art print will take around 48 hours (excluding weekends and holidays) to create and dispatch. Shipping time will depend on your location. We require a signature on delivery and use Australia Post for our freight.

3. Can I print colour, sepia and B&W on fine art paper ?

Most certainly. Many fine art printers use the one printer to print both colour and B&W prints. We have invested in dedicated B&W printers to create stunning, completely neutral prints with incredibly dense blacks.

4. How long will my fine art prints last ?

Both our fine art papers have Blue Wool certification. This means it has been independently tested by the UK Fine Art Guild who have deemed it is suitable for archival reproduction. Very few papers carry this level of assurance.

When handled and stored correctly, you can expect your prints to last for 75-100 years without fading or degradation.

Both our fine art papers are acid and lignin free. They are 100% cotton rag.

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.

When handling, it is advisable to wear cotton cloves.

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.
