I am down to my last dozen sheets or so of Arches Plantine so I need to look for a replacement. My local supplier nearly tripled his price on the Arches, so I visited a local paper supplier to see what they could supply.
He has access to large stock of Rives BFK at fairly good prices, but its not a paper I have ever worked with before. I will be printing mostly Kallitypes and a rare pt/pd print. He had one sheet of BFK on hand for display, so I wasn't able to compare it to Arches, but it seem like a good surface.
Any thoughts on this paper & how well will it might work for Kallitypes? I have to order a rather large minimum so any insights would be great.
As much as I would love to order and try a large variety of paper, shipping to this side of the Pacific gets expensive really fast.
