Hand-picked archival art papers

7 professional Giclée papers

1. Canson Aquarelle

Canson Aquarelle Rag is another highly textured Giclée art paper in our range, offering strong reproduction of blacks and good colour intensity with a texture that holds the ink and catches the light.This Giclée paper has a white uncoated paper base, which together with the texture gives the artwork a lovely fine art reproduction feel. The texture is even more pronounced than Hahnemühle German Etching so if you are really looking for the craft feel, this is a great option.Like the German Etching, the Canson Aquarelle Rag is a robust paper that handles mounting well.

2. Canson Baryta

A pure white Baryta base paper with excellent black density, contrast and reproduction of detail. Great for high contrast images, as well as fluorescent and vivid colours. The Baryta base creates whiter whites and deeper blacks whilst the silky smooth reflective coating enhances the detail and definition of the images. We recommend care when handling the print as is a sensitive paper and we advise that you add a border to the image if you would like to have it mounted.

6. Hahnemühle Photorag

The super matt finish of Hahnemüle Photorag makes this paper one of our most popular papers amongst artists, illustrators & photographers alike. The paper gives muted blacks with even colour reproduction, and excellent detail. The surface has minimal texture with a chalky smooth cotton feel which creates smooth colour gradients. It has a delicate surface, so we recommend extra care when handling.Photorag is suitable for mounting but its cotton texture means edges can fray if not carefully handled.

7. Hahnemühle German Etching

This heavyweight paper has a slightly warm base tone and a strong mottled texture. It creates a print with strong colours and deep blacks that feel rich and high in contrast. This is due to the texture of the paper enabling it to hold more ink and capture the light. The German Etching is one of our heavier weight Giclée art printing papers. With its weight and strong texture this paper gives an artwork a handmade crafted feel.Hahnemüle German Etching is a robust Giclée paper, meaning it doesn’t tend to fray as much at the edges.
