Which paper should I select for my fine art or photo prints?

Below you will find a table of info for many of our popular paper and canvas options. Use this page to help you narrow what you may want to use to print your artwork or photography. These are our most popular surfaces, however – this is not everything. Feel free to contact us if you are looking for something specific.

For the purposes of simplifying this info, we have made some generalizations when it comes to Brightness and Surface descriptions. Its important to only use this table as a general guide. Your best bet will always be to see these papers in person. We highly recommend test prints across a range of surfaces if you have never printed your artwork or photography.
