About Strathmore

The choice of paper is one of the most important decisions an artist can make in determining the outcome of his or her work. For lasting works of art, many artists prefer Strathmore art papers. Whether an artist works with watercolors, charcoal, pastels, pencils, pen-and-ink, markers, or other media, Strathmore papers enhance their artistic efforts.

The history of Strathmore Paper Company began on St. Patrick's Day in 1892 when Horace Moses opened the Mittineague paper mill in West Springfield, Massachusetts. Soon after, Mr. Moses visited the Valley of Strathmore in Scotland. The thistle was in full bloom and the beauty of the site impressed him so much that he started using the name and the thistle as a symbol of high-quality art and printing papers.

The Strathmore brand name began to appear on fine art papers in 1899, first with charcoal paper and soon after with bristol. The Strathmore brand quickly became known as one of the highest quality art papers used by many leading artists such as Norman Rockwell, Andrew Wyeth, and Susan Lyon. Today, Strathmore continues to provide artists of all experience levels with the ideal surfaces for producing beautiful works of art.

Artists will also find a long-standing tradition of environmental stewardship at Strathmore. From pioneering the industry’s first range of recycled artist papers in 1972, to the first artist papers manufactured with 100% certified renewable energy, Strathmore continues to develop the finest in eco-friendly products.

Strathmore’s support of environmental solutions does not compromise the performance, appearance, or price of its papers. It's all part of the company’s commitment to give artists the greener choices they want, with the Strathmore quality they’ve come to expect.

For more than a century, Strathmore has maintained its reputation as a supplier of fine art paper. The symbol of the thistle may have taken on a different appearance throughout the years, but the quality of Strathmore Artist Papers has remained second to none.
