My archival photographs are printed with only best-in-class materials. The paper used is Breathing Color Pura Smooth. Pura Smooth is a heavyweight (300 gsm/16.5 mils) bright white, matte fine art paper with a luxuriously smooth surface. This 100% cotton substrate is OBA-free (no optical brightening agents) for a color stable paper that will never “burn-out.” It produces extremely crisp and accurate detail. I also chose this paper because it is accredited by independent laboratories and meets standards set forth by Fine Art Trade Guild (FATG) for pH and lightfastness. Pura Smooth is archival certified for 100+ years. Pura Smooth is made in the United States.
The twelve-color pigmented inks are resistant to fading caused by light, heat, and the passage of time. Archival longevity of 100+ years is according to independent research conducted by Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc For best results, frame or otherwise protect your artwork with archival materials.
