Print on Textured Papers

Give your art some depth with texture. Textured prints on fine art papers provide some additional dimension and value. No matter if it artwork or photography, small or large print those that receive their prints will appreciate the features a textured paper provides. Here are some of our favorite choices to choose from:

Premium Giclee Paper

Premium Giclee Paper
This is a thick (21-mil) heavy weight (310g) paper with the luxurious style of traditional artists’ papers. It has a natural-white, matte finish with a textured watercolor feel. Fine art photographers will enjoy its true matte surface with elegant texture while artists will find it ideal for fine-art reproductions, especially paintings with a loose, expressive style.

Fine Art Paper

Fine Art Paper Velvet
Officially Moab’s Somerset Enhanced Velvet, this paper was previously labeled by FinerWorks simply ‘Fine Art Paper’. This popular paper is also distributed under the brands Epson Somerset Velvet and Canon Fine Art Enhanced Velvet. This textured paper favored by artists and photographers alike is milled by the St. Cuthberts Mill in Somerset, England. It is an acid-free, 100% cotton, single-side coated paper showing a natural white finish with a slightly textured matte surface has a soft velvet-like feel. A high-quality, mould-made paper, it is ideal for digital fine art reproductions. We now print this on Canon Printers using the Canon Lucia inks due to their superior archivability and increased color range.

Archival Canvas Paper

Archival Canvas Paper
This is the same as our Archival Matte Paper (or Moab Lasal Photo Matte) but embossed with a canvas-like texture. This is a heavy weight (230 g, 9.5-mil), neutral white, archival matte paper engineered for accurate color reproduction that provides high contrast and high-resolution output. This paper is acid-free making it the perfect choice for both photography & fine art reproductions.

Tips

Considered adding deckled edges. For that more vintage handmade paper look, decked or torn edges are the ideal solution. You can choose this option when ordering your print.

If not framed, you can accent with matting. While the mat is smooth you have the option of over two dozen colors.

If, framing, frame it behind glass. People will want to touch it if they can see the print is textured. Unless the paper itself is meant to shine due to it being a glossy or luster stock, consider a non-reflective glass or glazing. Our framing department offers both a conservation grade and more economical standard grade with reflection control.
