QT is committed to providing you and your clients with the highest quality products made from the best raw materials. Recently, we had some issues with our cotton rag paper supplier that they were unable to resolve to our satisfaction. Because we have high expectations and we understand your commitments, we have found a beautiful new cotton rag paper manufactured by an industry leader - Ilford.
This new paper is of even better quality and we really enjoy working with it. Print quality in both black & white and color remains the same so your studio samples are still up-to-date. There is a very slight difference in the surface of the paper where the new stock is a bit more textured as shown in the picture below. To the naked eye, the difference is not apparent, but we like you to be informed of these changes.
The new paper has a wonderfully organic feel and looks incredible with deckled-edge prints/ArtBooks.

We don't believe that switching to this new paper will have any negative impact, but if you want to be sure, we can provide you with a paper swatch. To request this, please email support.
Please note that this change will not affect ArtBook pricing as we will absorb the cost difference in order to provide you the absolute best.
Thank you for understanding!
