Paper Descriptions - There are so many paper choices out there! Seriously, it's overwhelming and it can be hard to know what you are getting until the print is in your hand. I want you to be confident about your choice, so i am going to do my best to describe each one! I did a lot of research and practice runs and finally found my favorite papers that give great colors and quality!

The Archival Matte Paper - Thickness/Weight: 9.5 mil / 230 g/m
This paper is a true Matte and in my personal opinion gives the most vibrant colors and contrast of the three paper choices. It is Acid free, has a very smooth surface and the paper is flexible - meaning it's not being printed out on anything that feels like card stock.

The Satin Luster Paper - Thickness / Weight: 11 mil / 300 g/m
This paper maintains a traditional "E surface" finish- the standard photographic finish. I would consider it "Semi-Gloss". The colors and contrast also come out very crisp and clear. It is slightly more dense then the Matte paper, but still very flexible with a smooth surface.

The Textured Matte Paper: Thickness/ Weight: 21 mil / 310 g/m
This paper is really fun. It's noticeably textured and to me has the look and feel of a traditional high quality watercolor paper. The paper is pretty dense- so it is thicker and not as flexible as the other two paper choices. It is also a true Matte and the colors and contrast look great!

***Packaging*** Any original or print is packaged in an archival plastic sleeve and supported between cardboard sleeves to ensure safe transport to your doorstep. Large prints or international shipping addresses may be shipped in in a sturdy corrugated shipping tube.
