Friday, February 5th, 2010

·         Canson’s new Art Boards feature a range of best-selling Canson and Arches® papers on rigid, archival backing.  The backing is composed of two-ply, 1.2 mm Canson archival white conservation board that is both acid and lignin-free.  The board is buffered, treated to resist mold, and compliant to ISO 9706—the standard for permanent paper.  The Art Boards provide artists with a stiff, strong working surface made to withstand the rigors of repeated use and a variety of techniques.
·        A significant benefit of using Canson Art Boards is that no mounting is required.  They are ready for framing without mounting, thus reducing added labor and cost.  Also, each board is UPC-coded for ease of sale and arranged on merchandising displays that make is simple for customers to choose the right texture and color of paper that best suits their artistic needs.  The product line includes an array of Art Boards that cater to different techniques and preferences:
