Choosing your photo or fine art paper

Paper for printing your artwork

When you print your artwork you have to think about the type of paper to use. Photographic paper is fine in matte or gloss but I prefer using a fine art paper for my work. The first I tried was Hahnmuhle Photo Rag fine art paper. It turned out beautifully! It was printed by my online service, beautifully packaged in a sturdy cardboard box and the art piece was layered between ‘acid-free’ tissue paper so as not to ruin it. Needless to say they did a wonderful job! It was similar to a ‘museum’ quality paper and enhanced my image fantastically. I mention Hahnmuhle fine art paper but there are many high quality papers out there. I’ve also just bought some Epson Matte photographic heavy paper and the image I printed on my own ‘Brother’ printer came out extremely well.

Next time I’ll be talking about framing and packaging/shipping artwork.

I’m always delighted to receive any feedback or comments!
