Imagine if you had to create art on a stone tablet, as prehistoric caveman did. What a burden it would be to lug those heavy pieces around. Eventually, paper was created, and art and literature were given a huge boost. The ability to mix colors or write on parchment was not only easier and more pleasing, but more beautiful as well. Whether it’s a textured cave wall covered with images of animals, the papyrus covered in hieratic scripts, delicate silk, canvas or paper, the surface used is important to get the desired result.
For all our prints, we use Hahnemühle paper. You can choose not only the size of the print, but also its style. The print can be in classic straight-cut or in artistic hand-torn style. Ordering a hand-torn photo makes sense if you are looking for an artistic touch (extra texture) and will frame it so the edges of the print are displayed. If you are looking for a simple frame or a frame with a mat, a regular straight cut will be a perfect and elegant solution.
We all know that the invention of paper drastically changed the world. It made books and art affordable and accessible for all. And now we can pick and choose what kind of paper we want to use to showcase art and photography in the best light possible.
