New Papers!

You printmakers may have noticed a dramatic change in quality  in Stonehenge papers. For one thing, it is no longer smooth, although the company denies that a change took place. Hmmm...

Anyway, we got rid of that. (Buy what's left on our sale shelf!)

Replacing Stonehenge is the new Canson "Edition" series, which is very similar to the old Stonehenge. (Better?) Same weight, nice texture, more colors, and... LOWER PRICE! (Wasn't Stonehenge the cheapest anyway?)

Canson's been making paper since 1557, and Edition is made from 100% cotton, like Stonehenge. Come feel some for yourself.
