It's machine made paper that consists of acid free 100% alpha cellulose with a bright white color obtained by adding optical brighteners. It's a fine art printing paper with excellent color depth that produces photo realistic definition and tremendous color range and depth. Available in widths up to 44".
Approximate longevity of 50-80 years in gallery lighting conditions.
The parchment like texture is unique.
This paper contains optical brighteners, which can affect the longevity of the paper. It's a very stiff paper that takes work to flatten once rolled. Like all paper prints, it should be framed under glass.
