60lb. River Linen Greeting Cards Details & Information


60lb. River Linen's elegant surface adds just the right level of texture to your images without interfering with details. When printed, River Linen 2.0 takes on just a bit of sheen, like many photo lab or press-printed linen cards. To make River Linen, we start with a high performance photo matte from the Premium Matte line, which is then embossed with the surface finish.

You can use River Linen for greeting and note cards, portraits, portfolios, and many other inkjet printing projects. River Linen is an archival paper made from pure alpha cellulose. It is acid and lignin-free.

  • Greeting cards, elegant invitations, announcements, photo prints

Reviews for 60lb. River Linen Greeting Cards

The paper is very elegant
Veronica Minsky
I have been using this paper for about 2 years and I love it. The linen finish adds a polished look to the artwork I make and print. The colors are very crisp and bright, it really enhances all the art I print.

Never thought I'd write a review for paper
The paper itself: It has a great texture that can really only be appreciated when you are up close to view art. The color was retained beautifully, and even thought it is textured, the details of what is printed is never compromised. So much to say about this paper/company. First, I bought this paper to make artist prints from home. The ordering process was simple and quick. I forgot to click order, but RRP reminded me I had it in my cart (great customer service). When the paper had arrived, I loved how carefully it was packaged. There is no way your order will ever be damaged by their dedicated care. Once I opened the box of paper, I noticed the subtle branding of a single protective red sheet of paper NICE TOUCH. There was even a sheet with detailed instruction for different printer companies. These guys thought of everything

A game changer
My goal for art prints has been to print on a linen paper. I was trying out cheaper papers from hobby stores and it was awful. No matter how I changed my printer settings, it just looked terrible. When I tried the red River linen, I almost cried. The print was STUNNING. And the price per sheet was about 7 cents different- super minimal. I can’t wait to start selling art prints on this linen paper. The colors are so bright!

The change I made from Glossy cards to Linen was perfect. The end result adds more depth to my images and projects a more valuable look to my product. I won't be going back.

First Class Product!
Mark Buchanan
This paper simply looks classy. I was impressed how sturdy the boxes are for both the paper and the envelopes: evidently someone was thinking! I also appreciated all the resources provided by Red River: templates, printer profiles and how to articles, I used them all.

I love this paper. Even my 14 year old granddaughter commented to me about how pretty the cards look when my art is printed on them.

Simply Beautiful Paper
I'm new to art prints but came across the Red River Papers on a blog and was intrigued with the linen texture. I ordered some to try as the base for my watercolor prints and love how they turn out. The linen texture is timeless and stunning when you hold the paper, but when on display you don't notice the texture (that's when it's about the art print!)
