Onyx Specialty Papers’ Fine Art products are used in a variety of applications that require attention to details beyond the standard paper testing parameters. Papers that are used in artwork are evaluated for texture and feel to make sure they are correct for the job at hand. The products are custom designed using our wide range of fiber options (cotton, bamboo, hardwood, softwood, synthetic and more).
