Absolutely will not go with another printer for artwork. The velvet rag is a matte paper that still feels very fine, and I'm always surprised by how vivid the colors turn out.
Make Every Mark Count
Wanting to showcase your buttery smooth gauche panting or your Mount Everest high thick oil paint is a no brainer! We would want that too! Finding a paper to show off all your excellent mark-making and fantastic textures used to feel impossible, before we found our Velvet Rag paper.
Smoother than the finest European butter!
Allowing your art to speak solely for itself in all its beautiful confident self. Your art prints will have the slightest visual texture and beautifully matte color making the prints look as velvety as the birthday cake icing you swiped your finger though for a sneaky taste when you were 5 years old.

I am so happy to say that I will be transferring all of my giclee printing needs to Split Arrow Prints! They did an absolutely fantastic job with some 16x20's for me--quick turnaround and stunning product. The prints came well packaged in all recyclable materials, which made me (and my cats who got to play in the box for a bit) very happy.
This is my first time ordering with Split Arrow and I'm in love! The prints that I ordered came out perfectly. The color is beautiful and I love the texture of the paper. Great customer service communication, too!
I love this stock so much. I’d been exclusively ordering prints on cold press water color until one week when they were waiting on a shipment. So they recommended I try the velvet rag and I’m so glad I tried it out. It’s perfect for pop colors and I love how digital pieces look printed on it. The textures is also as suggested—velvety. Can’t recommend it enough.
They look great! The colors and details are just the same as the images I sent. My customers are very happy. Thank you!
Beautiful quality and colors. I'm never disappointed with my prints from Split Arrow!!
Really great quality. Colors and resolution look perfect. Packed very thoroughly and shipped without any damage. Very glad to have found this company, awesome customer service.
