  • Archer 300lb hot press

    Reviewed on 1/30/2017

    As reviewed by Walt

    Experience: PROFESSIONAL

    Having recently began painting larger formats, I was looking for the most durable and whitest paper to compliment my heavy wet on wet style. In comparison to the Fabriano brand of the same, Archer's 300lb hot press paper seems to be a lot thinner yet held up much better with regards to buckling and retaining sizing (I may have received Archer 300gsm rather than lb. by mistake ?). Although the Fabriano extra white is slightly whiter, I'll sacrifice that quality and use Archers for its much better durability.
