The first paper

specially designed for platinum-palladium photographic printing – the reference!

papier ARCHES Platine
FILA Arches_SCS-autres

Made on a cylinder mould (traditional process): quality close to that of paper made by craft methods. The slow turning of the cylinder enables the fibres to be deposited evenly and spread in all directions over the wire. The paper is homogeneous, with a flatter surface and better wet strength. It can therefore withstand the numerous baths inherent in photographic alternative processes. Only papermaking on a cylinder mould can produce paper with deckle edges.



Platinum, palladium photographic printing, blue prints – Conservation and protection of works in photographic form



100% cotton

Pleasure of using a soft, supple, noble material (unbelievable feel).


Exceptionally smooth, satiny surface.

145, 310 gsm

Ideal for platinum-palladium printing and conservation of photographic works, blue prints, platinum prints, albumenised prints, the silver gelatin process or colour processes. The 145 gsm is particularly suited to book publishing and smaller standard print sizes.

Special formulation

The paper is ideally sized to give the artist perfect impregnation.


White. A very white colour which catches and highlights contrasts and brings out details. The higher Dmax reinforces the depth of blacks.

Sheets: authenticity and prestige

Deckle edges



No alkaline reserve (as it is incompatible with photographic alternative processes), acid-free, no optical brightening agents. Choosing the right paper is essential to meeting the highest archival standards.


Made to measure: ARCHES® customises your paper: you choose the format, quality, grammage, colour … and the watermark (conditions available on request).
