Fine Papers

1  2 

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.

PS104. Arches MBM Watercolor Paper 25.5x20
Arches MBM Watercolor Paper 25.5" x 20"

This laid paper is recommended by Peter Thornton and others. Mouldmade in France, made of 75% cotton/25% sulphite, neutral pH, 105 gsm, laid finish. Buffered and gelatine sized. Ideal for pastels, charcoal, sanguine chalk, and pen and ink. Complimentary for art printing and binding. Cold Press surface.

Comments from Sandy Wagner on Arches MBM:
It has a lovely watermark. I first used it at a Peter Thornton workshop drawing the Adolf Bernd letters. It takes water media really nicely and no, it doesn't bleed. It's just a really nice all-round paper. It's a little heavier than the Canson Ingres. Like the other Ingres papers, it's laid only on one side. The other side is cold pressed similar to Arches Text. So bookmakers might have some considerations in laying out their signatures, although I have a nice stab bound book with the cold-pressed surface facing the laid surface.

PS98-FS. Pergamenata: Heavy Weight, Full Size(230gsm)
Pergamenata Heavyweight
230gsm. 27.5"x39".

This parchment-look sheet is a great paper to work on (much better than common vegetable parchment papers). You get the look of vellum/parchment at a fraction of the cost.

Choose: Natural (Antique) or White

With these larger sizes the grain runs parallel to the long dimension. It is easier to fold paper with the grain, and in bound books, it is generally best to have the grain parallel to the spine of the book.
