3. Find the perfect paper

When using our Custom Framing services it is just as important to pick the right paper as anything else in this process. See our breakdown of our paper types below:

Canvas - print on canvas like regular canvas prints, poly-cotton blend, no mat when using canvas, but can still use a liner.

Satin - has a sheen to it, not gloss or high gloss, low gloss, has a bit of a sheen to it, similar to a luster print similar to a photo studio print, best used for photography prints.

Matte - Plain paper, thicker material, holds ink well, works well for fine art, such as a print of a watercolor or abstract art.

Hot Rag - This paper is a pure cotton-based paper, our highest quality paper, and is acid-free. Perfect for someone who wants to emulate a watercolor or illustration feel
