This paper lives up to its name having the look and feel of a traditional cold press watercolor paper. (a slightly lighter feel than arches cold press in the green block)

Being our most popular paper with tattooers for a reason; this paper feels just as good as it looks, allowing you to sell your prints for more than the guy next door slinging prints off a copy machine for $10.

Paper Specs: 285 GSM (slightly over 100#cover)  100% Cotton rag archival paper

Prints cold press review
Written by Anna on Apr 11th 2021

I received my prints of my artwork within record time. Quicker than I expected! Another artist friend of mine recommended Split Arrow Prints to me when I was hunting for a new printing lab to use. She told me that they would turn out rich and beautiful. And boy did they!! I am head over heels for these. These prints truly look like my original paintings, and the subtle textures in the paper bring them to life. 10/10.

Excellent Quality

Review for Cold Press Watercolor Prints
Written by Katie Griffin on Nov 21st 2020

I ordered several 12x16 Cold Press Watercolor Prints and they came out beautifully. The process was super easy and the turn around time was very quick. They were also trimmed perfectly. I will definitely be ordering more prints very soon and I highly recommend!

The quality of these prints are truly awesome. I ordered a set 0f 8x10 and 5x7, and even on the 5x7's the small details are crisp and not distorted in any way. I'm very happy making my choice with this company for my very first run of prints!
