Fotospeed’s new Art Smooth Duo paper is a smooth matt, natural white, heavyweight art paper with a guaranteed short grain direction. Instant dry, excellent colour reproduction, outstanding contrast, high resolution, universally compatible.
What is Grain direction and why does it matter?
The grain direction of a paper is important when you are creasing & folding the paper for process such as book making, creating folder greetings cards, portfolios and more.
Creasing & folding the paper in the same direction of the grain will ensure you create an exceptionally neat fold. Creasing across the grain will leave you with an untidy and unattractive fold.
Art Smooth Duo 210 has a guaranteed short grain direction. This means that the grain will run in the direction of the shortest side. Unlike other papers where from sheet to sheet within the same pack the grain direction can change.
