Speedball partnered with Schut Papier, a paper mill located near the city of Arnhem, Holland, that has been producing fine art paper since 1618, to create this premium 100% rag printmaking paper. The paper is extremely versatile and appropriate for a variety of techniques and media. It 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. Internally and surface sized, and acid-free.
