Re: Where can I buy Red River Paper in Uk

Hi Chris. I don't know of any actual source in the UK but why not contact them direct as see if they have any suggestions. I know I could get a range of other papers from local art shops in the UK by asking - it's surprising what is actually possible via art shops. Meantime, here's the query page link for RR:

I do know they will ship virtually Worldwide - here's their info page on such services:

but not worth it.  Pecos card stock, 7"x10", 50 pcs is $45, shipping to the UK is $31 by 2-4 weeks slow mail....

Re: RR ships to the UK....

Thanks Bob, as you say its really price prohibitive.

Its very frustrating as it looks a really great cardstock. I haved looked everywhere for a 350g cardstock which which be economical enough to produce myself and make a profit.

Re: RR ships to the UK....

Chris - as mentioned - any UK art shop will provide samples to try but I use Canson papers (acid free) and my most used for larger prints is their Canson Montval 300gsm weight watercolour paper. It is way below price of any so-called (IMHO inferior) photo paper. I used that in the UK - from local art shops in most areas of the UK - and can get it easily here in a stationers with an art supply dept - here in Spain, so is pretty well universally available. There must be an art shop within reasonable reach of you - I don't know where you are in the UK but I never had any difficults, whether in main cities like London, Liverpool and Manchester or such as Bangor and Caernarfon in Wales and so forth. Canson also produce a wide range of papers of various weights and any art shop should have a catalogue and a sample swab pack for showing samples, also with sample books for sale on shelves. Use this for additional info (UK website). BTW - 300gsm should be fine for your purposes.

Better link

Other was for the Canson and other papers coated for photos - I use the basic watercolour papers.  Cheaper and IMHO better.

Re: Where can I buy Red River Paper in Uk

Hi I live in the UK and I recently ordered Redriver scored 8.5x11 inch greeting card paper direct from Red River. It arrived within  2 days! Unbelievably quick. But be warned! Customs charges import duties and to be honest: it is not worth the hassle as it makes it overall an extremely expensive experience but the paper is very nice and prints very well with my Pro 100.

i did ask Red River why they haven't got any representation in the UK. They said that they were looking into this. I found out that online paper is working out something with them. Might help to call them and ask them if it is there intention to start to stock Red River paper.....maybe a bit of pressure helps!

Re: Where can I buy Red River Paper in Uk

Thanks to everyone for those suggestions, and to hubbie in particular I will certainly contact online paper and see what happens. Price is just too prohibitive with shipping costs direct from US.

Thanks again

Chris
