Introducing ARNHEM 1618, a premium 100% rag printmaking paper created by Schut Papier, a paper mill located near the city of Arnhem, Holland that has been producing fine art paper since 1618. The paper is extremely versatile. It is appropriate for a variety of techniques and media. Arnhem 1618 is appropriate for all printmaking media – from our own water-based inks to traditional oil-based inks, the paper’s strong and absorbent fibers accept multiple layers of ink brilliantly. It can be printed dry or damp. Note: Soaking or dampening time will vary and may not be necessary, depending on the process, technique, or preference of the artist.
Arnhem 1618 paper offers a semi-smooth surface with a substantial feel to the touch. The subtle grain combined with a smooth appearance allows a variety of media to take to the paper, while remaining a reliable surface for intricate detail. Arnhem’s strong and highly absorbent fibers make it ideal for dry or damp printing, allowing it to accept multiple layers of ink brilliantly.
