This is mostly a post for myself to remember what kinds of papers I purchased to use for layering and printing of my final poster design.
– 11″ x 17″ Clearprint Vellum 1000H #109012007 @ BLICK – The smaller and more opaque kind of vellum. It almost feels like parchment paper. < $1
– 19.5″ x 25.5″ Canson Vidalon Vellum (55 LB / 90 GSM) @ BLICK – Feels like a mix between wax paper and something matte… It’s more transparent with about the same thickness as the previous paper (maybe a smidge thicker).
– 19″ x 24″ Opalux Translucent Vellum (110 LB / 180 GSM) @ BLICK – Feels like the Canson Vidalon Vellum but is even smoother in texture. The opacity is roughly the same as the Canson Vidalon Vellum as well but the paper is definitely thicker, as if it were two sheets of the previous vellum together. Very durable, good for the cover sheet.
Those are the papers for the layering affect. As for the back drop of the layered poster overall, I’ve considered two paper types from Creative Cold Snow.
– 22″ x 30″ Printmake Sheet Cream #CAN100511194 – A warmer almost sepia/skin colored cream tone. Medium thickness paper with natural fiber edges originally.
– 22″ x 30″ Stonehenge Prtmak Sh Nat #CAN100510254 – A cooler, more yellow based paper. Similar texture as the previous paper, a tad smoother and less toothy. It also feels about the same in thickness, maybe a hair thicker with natural fiber edges originally.
I’m also considering using acetate for some of the sheets between the vellum and the back drop paper. I guess we will see what happens. One week left for crunch time! I’ll be busy workin’ on a lot of art and such this weekend for sure (when I’m not working my job). (:
