Single-sided Sheets and Rolls

Somerset Photo has been developed specifically with the photographer in mind. The large colour gamut and colour depth (d-max) means that any reproduction comes out magnificently. With Somerset Photo the black will look like velvet, full of depth and solid colour. The paper is produced in a bright white shade, with a smooth satin finish to enable all images whether they are black and white or colour, to come to life when printed.

Somerset Photo is from the same range of digital papers as the well-known Somerset Enhanced. All the Somerset inkjet papers from St Cuthberts Mill have evolved from the highly respected Somerset printmaking paper range. They are all mould made, in line with only the finest quality artist papers.

Made from 100% cotton, to give you a sheet made with one of the purest sources of cullulose. Not only do cotton papers have the look and feel of pure quality, they are made from one of the most archival ingredients around. As standard, St Cuthberts only make archival paper that is acid free and made from the purest ingredients. To combat acid attach finished prints may encounter from air pollution, Somerset Photo is buffered with calcium carbonate.

To achieve the maximum fade resistant print on coated inkjet papers, pigment inks are advised. This type of ink usually has far greater fade resistance than the equivalent dye based ink, making it ideal for coated inkjet papers. With any print, it should be treated with respect, and not placed in an environment where you would not expect an original painting to survive.
