ARCHES offers the most extensive range of art publishing papers on the market, including Velin d’ARCHES, Velin Johannot, and Velin BFK Rives, all of which have risen to mythical status! ARCHES art publishing papers are known and recognised by artists and studios all over the world, with whom ARCHES has shared the same passion for centuries.

Made on a cylinder mould (traditional process), the slow turning of the cylinder enables the fibres to be deposited evenly and spread in all directions over the wire. The paper is, therefore, more homogeneous and has very good dimensional stability. When printing, the job of positioning the humidified paper is much easier, and the paper can easily withstand repeated passages through the press. Only papermaking on a cylinder mould can produce paper with deckle edges.
