Fine Art Printing Resources


I am often asked all sorts of questions about fine-art printing, and specifically about recommending papers, suppliers, and other good sources of information.

I provide students in my printing workshops with a whole list of my favorites, but I thought I would post it here for everyone else.  I’ve left printers off this list because that needs a complete post unto itself – I’m working on it!

Here are my favorites…

New BACA website

The website that was in place was already a great asset, and this new upgrade will provide many more features and growth for the future. There’s lots happening in Beacon these days, so I definitely recommend anyone who is local to check out the scene on any second Saturday of the month for new gallery exhibits, and special events.
