Are there large sheets Matte paper with deckle edge?
« on: April 04, 2018, 09:50:11 PM »

I have some work to do where large prints (in the region of 30x40" up to 44x60"+, if possible) will be wanted, with the whole deckle edge look.  As my knowledge ends with PK papers, can someone tell me if x-large cut sheets are out there that will have the effect wanted, or is there a way to buy something like a roll of Hahn Photo Rag or Canson Rag Photographique and get the deckle edge required?

Alternatively is there some kind of etching paper that is right for this job, and works well in an inkjet printer?

Thanks!

There’s a ruler you can buy that has a deckle edge for tearing your own paper. Westcott Grip and Grip or the Dual Edge Ripper.

You can buy A1 size deckle edge sheets here but they are extremely expensive handmade sheets: http://awagami.com/online/AIJP/index.html#Bizan

 Ah Ryan, you beat me to it! I have the deckle edge ruler and find it very useful, mine has one edge that is a good deal more jagged than the other so you can vary your rips if you like.
