Another Choice in Fine Art Paper: Sunset Bright Textured Fine Art

Sunset Textured Fine Art Paper has become a staple for photographers, fine art reproduction companies and print shops that require the qualities found in a traditional watercolor paper in sizes that range from 8 1/2 x 11 sheets to 60-in. wide rolls.

Printing fine art and photosFor those looking for a brighter white surface, as opposed to the more natural tone of Sunset Textured Fine Art Paper, LexJet recently introduced Sunset Bright Textured Fine Art Paper 310g. The new fine art paper is perfect for all kinds of fine art and photographic reproductions, photo restoration work, photo albums, presentation art and high-end displays.

Designed for the latest aqueous printer and ink technology from Canon, Epson and HP, Sunset Bright Textured Fine Art maximizes the increased fidelity and color gamut these printers provide. Like all LexJet Sunset fine art, photo, fine photo papers and canvas, it is scuff and scratch resistant and will not flake to ensure trouble-free production.

For print shops with low-solvent, solvent, UV-curable and latex inkjet printers, LexJet also offers a version compatible with those ink sets, Sunset Textured Fine Art SUV.
