ARCHES® master papermakers have been producing very high-quality fine art papers since 1492, and today ARCHES® is the only paper mill in France using a traditional cylinder mould process for all its papers, including ARCHES® Aquarelle Rag. Using the traditional watercolour base, the paper has an even natural grain and a felt-marked finish. ARCHES® Aquarelle Rag is manufactured using 100% cotton which contributes to the paper’s natural beauty and feel. The pure white base does not contain any optical brightening agents (OBAs).
The unique inkjet receiving layer produces prints with superb colour rendition, deep blacks and pure whites offering photographers, artists and printmakers the opportunity to create images with superb tonal range, excellent highlights and mid-tones.

IMAGE FILE PREPARATION
When uploading image files for Global Image Printing Services, please make sure the image files are sized correctly and the resolution is 300dpi. For best results we also recommend the colour space to be Adobe RGB (1998) or sRGB.
To ensure the best printing results it’s very important to prepare your files according to our instructions.
The best way to calibrate your monitor to match our printing profiles is to order a set of FREE TEST PRINTS. Included with your test print order we will also supply a Lustre GIP colour correction print for your reference. Below you can download the corresponding file to the GIP colour correction print.
Once you have received your physical test prints and GIP colour correction print from Global Image Products, open the GIP colour correction file downloaded above in your chosen photo editing software and make monitor adjustments to match the print.
Please note that we have matched our printer to paper profiles across the 4 available fine art papers to produce almost matching colours regardless of your paper preference.
