310GSM OBA FREE VELVET FINE ART PAPER, 100% COTTON
This 310g water-resistant velvet fine art paper is made from 100% cotton fibre and is acid, lignin and OBA free. Pura Velvet is a proprietary mouldmade fine art paper that is strong and dimensionally stable. It has a remarkable ink load capacity, and best-in-class image quality that exceeds the limitations of virtually every paper of its kind.
Pura Velvet is ideally suited for luxurious fine art and photographic reproduction, portraits, greeting cards, post cards, and presentational art graphics for printed displays.
UNRIVALED COLOUR GAMUT & DMAX
Pura Velvet 100% cotton fine art paper delivers incredible colour gamut and dmax that other papers in this class fail to compete with.
LUXURIOUS LOOK & FEEL
Once you hold a Pura print in your hand, its hard not to be impressed with its ideal 310g weight, beautiful texture and soft feel. With Pura Velvet you know that you are maximising the perceived value of every fine art print.
Off the roll, this fine art paper is easy to handle and prints will generally sit flat straight off the machine, making it a framer’s friend.
CONSISTENT & RELIABLE
We understand that long-term consistency and reliability is vital. That's why we made Pura Velvet to be a derivative of our Elegance Velvet Fine Art Paper, which has been the "anchor" of fine art reproduction studios worldwide for a decade. No reason to reinvent a successful product - we just enhanced it.
Pura Velvet is archival certified for 100+ years. Download and utilise the Archival Certificate to differentiate your business and show your customers how much you care about quality.
If you are new to Breathing Color and would like to test this product, we highly recommend that you take advantage of the inexpensive Trial rolls offered which provide enough product for sufficiently running tests and creating samples. Trial rolls are limited to one per customer per product.
Pura Velvet Fine Art Paper is water resistant and instant drying, and can therefore be coated with our Timeless laminate or Glamour 2 print varnish to create coated finishes on 100% Cotton Rag fine art paper (scroll down below this section to see a tutorial video of this process). You can use Timeless Gloss, Satin, and Matte with the process outlined in the video below. You can also use Glamour 2 Gloss, Matte, or a combination of the 2 when coating Pura Velvet.
PURA VELVET PASSES BLUE WOOOL TEST
Extensive independent testing by a UKAS accredited laboratory has concluded that the Pura Smooth Fine Art Paper meets and/or exceeds the standards set forth by the Fine Art Trade Guild for pH and lightfastness. The Fine Art Trade Guild has established these standards in order to protect the interests of consumers. Consumers who follow the Blue Wool Testing and the Fine Art Trade Guild standards can be confident that the art and framing supplies they use are archival.
