Comments about Fabriano Unica Printmaking Paper:
Fabriano make wonderful paper.I print my etchings and water color or I draw on it with ink : This paper never fails me,Its just beautiful. I wet one side with cold water and stack the paper the night before a printing session and wrap in plastic so the paper is perfectly moist and ready for printing. After watercoloring I sometime let the fonished work rest undera heavey plate so the paper becomes completely flat again.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

High Quality Low Price
from Schenectady, NY
Usually printmakers use Rive BFK paper to print on. Since I am on a budget I decided to try out this "Fabriano Unica Printmaking Paper." I am very satisfied. Thought this paper is a hair thinner than Rives, it is just as amazing, and makes great prints. This product is also much cheaper than the traditional Rives BFK, so I was able to buy more and print more for a lower price.
Good product, excellent price
from NY, NY
I bought this paper in Ivory, which is a lovely creamy shade, and I'm back to purchase more in the white color.I use this paper for mixed media: various combinations of gouache, watercolor, and ink, along with dry media. The surface most resembles cold press watercolor paper, so the subtle tooth is great for pastels and charcoal. And there's no feathering or bleed-through with ink. There are 2 main drawbacks: 1.) it buckles, even with light washes (while being taped down) and 2.) the surface will pill if manipulated with more than 2 or 3 brush strokes. Because this paper is marketed for printmaking, I only took off 1 star for these issues. The paper does flatten out fairly quickly once removed from a board and weighted down. And the paper is fairly thick, so any minor pilling doesn't destroy the surface. I just wait till the area dries and gentle brush the pilling away.All in all, it's still a great value for the price.
