Born in 1928, Jean-Paul Marchal grew up among the wood shavings of his grandfather’s joinery workshop. First, he was a primary school teacher and it was only when he retired that he returned to his original passion, drawing. At the age of 55, he took classes at the Image d’Épinal school to learn typography. Very quickly, he honed his techniques and perfected his know-how until his talent was revealed by an art critic who immediately dubbed him the “Imagier d’Épinal”, the picture maker of Épinal.
In 1992, ARCHES® became the first paper mill to develop a special paper for platinum and palladium photographic printing and blue prints: ARCHES® Platine.

The Arches paper mill obtained the “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant” (Living Heritage Company) mark of recognition for the first time in 2017. It has just been awarded the precious distinction again, for a further five years.

The village of Docelles in the Vosges, “paper town”, is a reality that is very much alive.
