Palo Duro Smooth Rag 310 Details & Information
You asked for a smooth, top performing fine art paper and we listened! Following on the heels of the award winning Palo Duro Etching, Palo Duro Smooth Rag 310 is everything you could ask for in a heavy smooth cotton paper.
Made from 100% cotton rag, Palo Duro Smooth Rag 310 gives you the classic look of a fine photographic art print. The surface adds just the right amount of texture to your print and will not distract from the details you worked so hard to capture. This OBA-free archival paper is ideal for museum quality and conservation grade prints.
Why "Art" Paper for Photography? - For many years, cotton art papers were emulsion coated for darkroom printing. The result is sublime - an elegant surface texture and sophisticated hand-feel. With modern inkjet coating, your prints will have a powerful impact and are sure to please.
Warmer White Paper - Palo Duro Smooth is a natural white paper. This is because we do not add any chemicals that make paper look bright white. The whites of your image are going to take on an elegant, warmer look. This is a benefit for images of nature, skin tones, landscapes, rich black & whites and artwork reproductions.
Deep Blacks - You will be amazed that a matte paper can make luxurious deep blacks. The secret is a barrier coat between the paper and inkjet receiving layer. Ink stays locked into the inkjet coating and cannot sink into the paper base. The results are luxurious deep blacks.
Museum Grade - This means a museum curator would be comfortable putting this paper on display. The keys to museum quality are 100% cotton fiber, acid-free, lignin-free, and optical brightener (OBA) free.
