Hi all -

I was wondering what paper you all like to use for printing your illustrations? I'm looking to sell some online and some people have told me to use watercolour paper and others said not to and I'm confused. I'm using a normal inkjet printer.

Am I right in saying that there is serious lack of shops online selling this stuff aimed at creatives?

Actual watercolour paper is for painting on to, but there are numerous inkjet papers with various finishes, including one
that looks like watercolour paper.

I use Somerset Enhanced which you can find on Amazon and other sites. You want to look for fine art shops like Jacksons and Great Art.
You get what you pay for, like most things. The quality of the print is down to the printer, of course.
