Arnhem 1618® Paper
The result of a dynamic partnership between Speedball® and a historic paper mill located near the city of Arnhem, Arnhem 1618 Paper offers a semi-smooth surface with a substantial feel to the touch.
Representing the superior quality, fine art paper that has been produced by our historic partner mill outside the city of Arnhem for over 400 years, Arnhem 1618 boasts the following properties:
- 100% rag and acid-free
- Vellum finish
- Two deckled edges (on white and warm white sheets only)
- Both internally- and externally-sized
In addition, Arnhem 1618 paper’s 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 1618’s strong and highly absorbent fibers make it ideal for dry or damp printing, allowing it to accept multiple layers of ink brilliantly.
