For more than 450 years, Canson® has invited artists, amateurs and professionals to freely express their creativity on exceptional papers. In 2008, Canson developed the Canson Infinity range for photographers and print makers with the highest expectations. Since the creation of Canson the company has maintained a strong relationship with their end-users and innovative uses for paper, which has kept Canson at the forefront of many inventions (the hot air balloon, tracing paper, pulp dye (color) paper, fine textured vellum paper…). Canson retains this spirit of innovation by combining centuries of papermaking experience, innovation and technically advanced coatings to produce the new benchmark for today’s demanding fine art photography and archival print reproduction marketplace. This perfectly responds to the artist’s needs by designing a very broad range of media adapted to all forms of artistic expression. The superior sophistication and innovation of the Digital Fine Art and Photo Range reflects the very high expectations of Canson in regards to the quality of its products.
