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).

Painting & Drawing

Papers designed to receive artwork (drawn, painted, or printed) can be made with customized surfaces and physical attributes that work with the artists’ medium. If it is desirable to have more “tooth” in the sheet, or if your ink to stay right where it is applied, we have the ability to make it happen.
