Paper Love- Same Same but Different ?

You just discovered you favorite artwork and wonder what the heck is Photorag ? Wonder no longer I am here to help. I have to admit I am quite in love with Hahnemuehle Fine Art Papers, especially Photo Rag and German Etching. That is why you will find most Prints printed as Gicleé Print on either Photo Rag or German Etching. I do offer C- Prints ( which is a fancy word for good old photo - almost 99 % of my C- Prints are printed on Fuji Matte Photo Paper ) , you can find the paper description below under each artwork.
