Product Description

It seems that this premier mouldmade 100% cotton fine art paper has been in the market forever. It has certainly been the standard for all of the other deluxe fine art printmaking grades that followed.

The paper's internal sizing and minimal surface sizing allow it to be dampened (instead of having to be soaked overnight) in preparation for printing. Please take note however that the soaking stage is subjective and obviously follows the specific needs of the artist.

Its ability to print wet, damp or dry and its subtle texture make it a versatile sheet for all printmaking techniques. The paper has proven to be very dimensionally stable and will take repeated passes through a hand or automated litho or etching press without showing any cracking near the plate edges.

Although Arches Cover is a paper devoted to the printmaking process, over the years it has won the hearts of pencil, pastel and charcoal artists who favor the rich feel of a soft and supple paper with a modest surface texture.

I wanted to let you know that I just received my online order of my favourite St. Armand Paper plus markers.  I am so impressed with your service – thank you so much.   I am a member of our local art centre here in Kimberley BC and we have very few choices of where to purchase our supplies.  We usually leave our buying list to when we make our four hour journey into Calgary.   You have made our lives so much simpler.   I will passing on your website to my artist group of friends. 

Thank you again.
I will be back.

I received your order promptly. I'm very impressed on how well packaged it was, as well as the choice of art supplies you have. I've now added you on my list of go-to suppliers...

Great job!

I do not do large orders often but have ordered with you once before. Your paint prices are so much better than Toronto art stores. If there are any product samples that you want to get rid of, I would be happy to receive them as I experiment with a lot of different supplies. Please save on packaging and send everything at one time. I stopped ordering from Amazon, because their overuse of packaging is out of control, and I prefer to support Cdn businesses as much as I can. Thank you for your great service, I had a great experience with my last order.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for sending, at no charge, the taper point shaper, I really appreciate it. Aside from this, I meant to drop you a note after I received my previous order which was also my first. Thanks for taking such great care in packaging the items purchased, such professionalism is rare to find, thank you!

I hope I’ll be able to  broaden the array of items I will order from your store, I wish you’d carry PastelMat paper J

Take care
