One of the most loved sections of our New York Art collection are our watercolor prints. Perhaps the best way to display these is on watercolor rag paper with suede mats. Let’s learn more about both below.
Fine Art Prints on Watercolor Rag Paper
Our watercolor paper options come in two varieties: cold press bright paper for most dimensions and hot press rag paper for large format prints (36”x24”).
These papers are ideal choices for reproductions of watercolor paintings. Let’s explore how they’re made, what they’re made out of, and what makes them industry-leading materials.
Cold Press Bright Paper
This is archival quality paper — the ideal option for watercolor artwork prints. The paper is made using 100% cotton rag in a cold press production method. The finish is a matte, highly textured surface.
And this paper is substantial! It weighs 340 gsm, is 21 mil thick, and has 98% opacity. It makes every print look and feel premium.
The paper produces bright whites, deep black, and a wide color gamut. Our cold press bright paper is one of the only substrates that can deliver this level of color depth with a matte finish and texture.
But a richly colorful and textured print is only valuable if it can stand the test of time. Our pH buffered cold press bright paper is avid, lignin and chlorine free, ensuring that your artwork is as beautiful as the day you got it for generations to come.
Hot Press Rag Paper
Our hot press rag paper is made through a heat-added process. Only a touch lighter at 310 gsm, it is made with 100% cotton. The finish is silky smooth, making it great for detailed fine art photography and paintings with large swaths of color.
The ability to faithfully reproduce intricate detail at large sizes brings you gallery-quality prints right in your home.
Premium Suede Mats
Our unique suede surface mats are a luxurious way to finish out your prints. Our mats have four ply, acid-free construction, protecting your artwork and lasting right along with it.
There are many clear benefits to matting your prints in general:
- creates an attractive addition to the frame;
- protects the print from direct contact with the glass;
- emphasizes colors in the print and in surrounding decor.
Our premium suede mats do all this with a couture touch — exactly what fine art prints of the most iconic, romantic views of New York City deserve.
When our watercolor print paper is combined with our premium suede mats, you have the beauty of New York Art in vivid color, precise detail and attractive presentation.
Our premium materials and stunning views of New York combine to make an incredible art experience. Explore our collection of watercolor paintings today, and enjoy their breathtaking quality in your home.
