•  Somerset Photo

has been developed specifically with the photographer in mind. The large colour gamut and colour depth (d-max) means that any reproduction comes out magnificently. With Somerset Photo the black will look like velvet, full of depth and solid colour. The paper is produced in a bright white shade, with a smooth satin finish to enable all images whether they are black and white or colour, to come to life when printed.
Somerset Photo is from the same range of digital papers as the well known Somerset Enhanced. All the Somerset inkjet papers from St Cuthberts Mill have envolved from the highly respected Somerset printmaking paper range. They are all mould made, in line with only the finest quality artist papers.

•  Traditional Printmaking Papers

Somerset is a world leading traditional printmaking paper. It is mould made using 100% cotton by St Cuthberts Mill, with each sheet buffered with calcium carbonate to help defend finished prints from discolouration caused by acids present in pollution. It is available in eight highly lightfast colours that reach a minimum of 7 on the Blue Wool Scale, including a stunning deep black sheet.

The surface has a gentle texture, plus it has a soft and good-tempered nature, as well as being a strong and stable enough sheet for ensuring excellent printing. It remains flat after printing and offers durability and long life to finished editions of work.
