Fine Papers

  1  2  3 

Paper Shipping:
In most cases, large sheets of paper must be shipped separately from other items. For this reason, there is a separate Paper Shipping Charge of $12.00 for shipments to the USA (excluding HI, PR, AK, APO, FPO addresses). This is a flat rate, regardless of the number of sheets you order.
If you order books/supplies and large sheets of paper together, you must pay shipping on the book/supply total and also $12.00 shipping for the paper. For example, if you order 3 books totaling $49.95 and 20 sheets of Arches Text Wove, add $7.95 shipping for the books and $12.00 for the paper. Please add item PS00 to your cart for the paper shipping fee.

We also offer Paper Packs that are smaller in size and do not require extra paper shipping.

Confused by the metric weighting system of our fine papers?
Use the Paper Comparison Chart to get a rough weight comparison between papers.

This picture shows many of our papers side-by-side for comparison.

PS04. Frankfurt Paper
Frankfurt
19"x25". 120gsm. pH neutral. Choose White, Cream.

A mixture of cotton and high alpha cellulose. Sheets have three deckle edges and one cut edge. High alpha cellulose A very pure form of wood pulp which is considered to have the same longevity as cotton or other plant fibers.

This beautiful wavy laid paper is a favorite of Jean Formo. She uses it in her walnut ink classes. I find it easy to erase. Some inks allow correction with a white plastic eraser!

This paper ships separately from books/supplies and requires an extra shipping fee which is NOT included in the price of this product. Add item 'PS00' to your cart after adding large sheets of paper. (click to read details)

PS108. Frankfurt Smooth White
Frankfurt Smooth White (120 gsm) 21"x30".

Same as regular Frankfurt, including the beautiful wavy laid lines, but with a smoother surface that works well with both pointed nibs and small broad-edge ones. Penman Michael Sull is a fan of the paper. For pointed nibs, you need to use a light touch to prevent catching.

PS106. Arnhem 1618 Printmaking Paper
PS106. Arnhem 1618 Printmaking Paper

This paper is discounted 15% due to bumped corners.

This new paper from Speedball is made for printmaking, but the semi-smooth, vellum-finish surface is also ideal for calligraphy and bookbinding. Internally & externally sized. 100% rag, acid-free, with 2 deckled edges. 245gsm. 22"x30". Made by Schut Papier, a mill near Arnhem, Holland, that has made fine paper since 1618.

This printmaking paper was a hit at the two Cheerio Calligraphy Retreats this fall. Samples were provided to several participants and to the instructors and all reported that it was an excellent paper for calligraphy. Angie Vangalis felt it is superior to Rives BFK (and is less expensive). The surface has a smoother finish, making it suitable for pointed pen work. Grain runs along the long size of the paper.
