    Daniel Smith has it, probably other art supply places as well.

    I get my Arches Platine from Stephen Kinsella. They are local and I can call and place the order and pick it up on my way home from work.

    hi all,
    my local art supply stocks several Arches papers, but not Platine

    is Platine greatly different/better than Arches Watercolor Smooth 100% cotton, 185 or 300 gsm?

    It's a very different paper. Whether better for a given purpose is a personal judgment call; I didn't care for it for gum printing.

    My local Dick Blick store stocks it. I'm sure it is on their web site also

    Just got the paper from Daniel Smith. They do very a nice job packaging, none of the corners were even a little curled, all the sheets look pristine.
