Arches 88 printmaking paper is the ideal medium for screenprinting. It is made on a cylinder mould, which offers a quality close to handmade papers. The slow turning of the cylinder enables the fibres to be deposited evenly and spread in all directions over the wire. The paper is homogeneous and has good dimensional stability, an essential quality for the screen-printing process, which sometimes requires the application of several colours in succession. Only papermaking on a cylinder mould can produce paper with deckle edges. Arches 88 printmaking paper offer an exceptionally smooth and satiny surface.
