Print on Sunset Cotton Etching Fine Art Paper

10/2/2013 - Nothing like the month of October, one of my favorite months of the year. Living in south/central Texas Fall usually does not begin to hint it even exists until sometime this month so the change from upper 90s to lower 90s is always welcome. Of course any little change in the temperature in this region to a more comfortable level is always welcome. With Fall showing up it puts us in the mood at FinerWorks to add a new paper to our current lineup. In this case we are getting ready to add a fine art paper called Sunset Cotton Etching which bridges a gap between two of the most popular papers we offer.

How to Choose a Paper Type

8/10/2013 - An artist asked, “What kind of paper should I choose? I am just getting into printing and don’t know what type of paper to select. Can you help me?” Of all the questions we get, I have to put this at the top. As a giclee printing company, FinerWorks has carefully researched what people like and what people expect in a paper. Choosing a paper type which best reflects your image is really how you should approach this question. Determining which is the most appropriate for that image should be based on your own preferences, how well an image looks on the particular media you choose, and your customers preferences if known.
