Art Style Giclee Papers

Whether you’re photographer who knows cotton rag can enhance the mood of a print, or if you’re a fine artist who needs faithful reproductions from your original painting, there’s an Art Style Paper that is right for you. We have chosen pure cotton rag papers with a pedigree of 450 years and contemporary styles from Permajet. Printed with Ultrachrome HD pigment inks, that have an accepted 75 years lightfastness, they have a wide colour gamut to make bright colours burst with life and retain detail in the darkest shadows.

So the choice is there - how about the service?

Like all our services, we hate to keep you waiting, but we won’t be rushed if it compromises quality so expect a day or two turn round. Fine art prints are matched to the original and we have the experience to understand the subtleties of watercolour and the limitations of reproducing oils. We’ll talk through the process when you bring in your original.


In our experience, photographers will already have spent hours fine-tuning an image and we respect that. If we have a concern over an image, we’ll contact you: we want to hand over a print that matches your vision.


All our papers are archival, acid free and we include a 2" border all round as standard. Order 2 or more for a discounted price.

Cotton Rag Textured Etching 300gsm

This is our most popular art paper that mimics the surface texture and warmth of tradtional watercolour paper. It is a 310gsm mould made 100% cotton rag paper that, together with our Ultrachrome HD inks, guarantees archival standards. Perfect choice for reproduction of art using acrylic or watercolour paints or photographs with that 'painterly' quality.

Cotton Rag Photo Smooth 300gsm

Another favourite paper with artists and photographers, this 100% cotton rag paper gives a velvety finish in the blacks and retains fine detail that can be lost on a textured finish. It lends itself to charcoal and graphite reproduction and is perfect for botanical illustration.

Permajet Artist Watercolour 250gsm

This is a wood pulp paper that is still archival quality and has a strong textured finish somewhere between canvas and watercolour paper. The base colour is a light cream so adds warmth without being intrusive. Applications would be the same as for our Textured cotton rag paper.

Permajet Portrait White 285gsm

This is a smooth finish cotton rag / wood archival mix paper with a bright white base. The unbleached cotton rags may not suit a subject that needs the brightness that paper offers but in other respects, it is very similar to our 100% cotton rag and proving very popular.

Permajet Portfolio Rag 220gsm Smooth

Although it has a lighter weight, this 100% cotton rag paper is very similar to our 300gsm Photo smooth paper. It may be better to avoid this if the image toners are very dark, as the extra ink load may not allow it to lie perfectly flat.

Perfect choice: botanical illustration, etching, sketches...
