FINE ART PAPERS

The listed paper stocks have been chosen by Bell's Fine Art as they represent light textured to heavy textured matt papers through to photo paper and canvas.

Ilford has been at the top of the digital resin coated paper range for a number of years now - producing the world's most popular photo inkjet paper in Ilford Galerie Smooth Pearl.

In recent times, following their co-acquisition by an Australian company and a Japanese company, they've made tremendous waves in the fine art paper market. This combination of local support (= competitive pricing), and great products means they are rapidly growing in popularity in the art segment to match their already strong position in the digital photo paper segment.
