Going Green- Photographic Prints on Sugar Cane

Image #110108-65

I have recently tested and added into the mix of papers that I offer for my prints, a new paper which is made from sugar cane pulp. It has the textured surface of a fine art paper and it adds a slight warmth to the photograph. The sugar cane paper that I am using is a heavy weight natural white paper. It is made from 75% sugar cane (bagasse) fiber, which is a by-product of sugar cane processing and 25% recycled cotton fibers. Bagasse fiber is an eco-friendly resource endorsed by many environmental organizations worldwide. Since it is made from the leftover material of the sugar making process it saves trees and helps to maximize the use of materials that are consumed when sugar is produced. In addition to it’s environmentally friendly properties it shows off prints beautifully!!

    Interesting, hadn’t heard about this. Have you used it enough to draw any conclusions about the quality?

    Excellent photo by the way…
