One of the many benefits of moving to the Zenfolio gallery for open editions is that the print provider who prints the fine art prints here is of the highest quality, and making me most happy is the fact that they print using one of my most favorite papers for my own printing of C Ribet limited editions. This fine art museum quality heavy weight watercolor board paper is Hahnemuhle's German Etching Board 310. I have used it for many many years myself and it is an absolutely superb fine art paper. The only caveat is that after printing the surface is delicate and the print should be handled with care before framing. That has me worried a bit when I was going to use a 3rd party to handle the printing on this kind of paper, until I heard from the company on how they pack and ship the final print. There is no 'roll it up and stuff it in a tube' process here! They pack it with a protective non abrasive sheet over the delicate paper surface (how I store my own limited edition prints on this paper), and then pad that, and finally sandwich between boards. This is the kind of treatment a real fine art print deserves, and that is what they give it.
