Ideal for printmaking artists and other projects. The Chinese characters for gampi literally translates as "goose skin". This paper is sometimes referred to as "silk tissue". This natural gampi is thin, and ideal for chine colle, etching, as well as many types of printmaking methods.

Paper Connection's Gampi Collection is made from 100% Philippine gampi, a lustrous, silky fiber native to Japan and other parts of Asia. Both in its sheet form or in the raw fiber form, gampi by its natural make-up reacts to ink as if it had sizing on it.  In other words, it holds ink on its crisp, smooth surface beautifully.  At Paper Connection, we call it the "queen of printmaking".

Furthermore, bamboo produces 35% more oxygen and consumes four times as much CO2 as trees. In addition to its many eco-friendly attributes, Awagami Bamboo Paper has a luxurious texture similar to silk, making it an excellent choice for today's shrewd and environmentally-conscious letterpress and printmaking artist.

The Fujimori family has owned and operated the centuries-old Awagami paper factory since the late 1700s. While they are committed to preserving the nearly 2000-year-old Japanese paper making tradition, they are also continually moving forward in the craft, honing modern techniques and practices. The result is a highly diverse range of top quality fine art papers.

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
