100% cotton – Made on a cylinder mould!

Originally formulated decades ago for silkscreen printing, Arches 88 has gained a following for various printmaking techniques. The crisp white 140lb (300gsm) paper is dimensionally stable and provides a smooth level surface perfect for serigraphy. Arches 88 is a 100% cotton fiber paper that is acid-free and pH neutral. The buffered paper is unsized for high absorption. Ideal for other printmaking mediums such as etching or lithography, the paper is also an excellent surface for pencil drawings. When working in intaglio, a misting or dampening of the paper is all that is required.

Product Overview

100% cotton – Made on a cylinder mould!

Originally formulated decades ago for silkscreen printing, Arches 88 has gained a following for various printmaking techniques. The crisp white 140lb (300gsm) paper is dimensionally stable and provides a smooth level surface perfect for serigraphy. Arches 88 is a 100% cotton fiber paper that is acid-free and pH neutral. The buffered paper is unsized for high absorption. A silkscreen printer can easily layer 50 to 100 colors on a single sheet of Arches 88.

Because the paper is unsized, it is unforgiving, so a single ink spot or splatter will show up. This paper has many of the characteristics of blotter paper and must be handled with purpose and sensitivity. When working in intaglio, a misting or dampening is all that is required. The paper is ideal for other printmaking mediums such as etching or lithography and takes all pencil applications well. Each sheet of paper is watermarked and has four natural deckle edges.
