There are difficulties in making Gemini Olympic Mill Board in 2.8mm. Our new stocks are 2.7mm.

Some of the previous changes are:

We have added new hand made papers to our stock range made by Gangolf Ulbriht in Berlin. The Magnani Mill has restarted with a new product range. New stocks should be available during the year.

We now have stock of Revere Black in 250 and 300gsm made at Magnani.

The range of printmaking papers available from stock from the Arches mill has been reduced. As we still have some stock of discontinued items, our advice is to check availability with us for Velin Arches Blanc, Velin Arches Creme, BFK Rives and Moulin du Gue.

We have goood stocks of the 56 x 76 cms size in all weights with two natural deckled and two torn deckled edges. When these items are sold, the new stock will be a smoother HP with two natural deckled edges and two cut edges. The old version has a dedicated watermark in the sheet. The new version has a running watermark along one long edge.

We will up date the individual pages in the near future.
