Mike's suggestions are right on.
A quality paper can make a big difference in your printing process and of course add beauty and life to the print as well.
I have a paper source in New York City. New York Central Art Supply; 1 800- 950-6111, not much on their web site yet NY Central has a large inventory of papers from th. Though it would be difficult to compete Baren mall for prices.
I buy paper sized. When I purchase it sized, I eliminate one step in the labor and a potential miscalculation in the effort.

Hello all- just a quick note that I am going to try and start some
convo at baren after 5.
maybe it was going but right now its a tad slow i hear.
if you are subscribed look for a note there, or hey, subscribe! i look
forward to some OT convo there once in a while.I
'm too all over the board to confine letters to all u interesting folks
to printing, as deep as that subject is. I know. Shame, shame on me.
So when you are done amazing the world and want to play in the sandbox
c'mon down. I got a pail and a shovel right here.

I've just released a new website featuring work by my wife, Kate, and
You'll find a fair number of my woodcuts (as well as etchings, monotypes
and mezzotints) at, with
more to come as we continue to develop and add onto the site.

Dear Baren- a friend sent this and I thought it apropos of this
exchange we did in tribute to an influential printmaker.
Thanks to marki for sending it!


We are like children in the master's violin shop
not yet allowed to touch the tiny planes or the rare wood
but given brooms to sweep the farthest corners
of the room, to gather shavings, mop spilled resins
and watch with apprehension the tender curves
emerging from apprenticed hands. The master
rarely shows himself but whenever he does he demonstrates
a concentrated ease so different from the willful accumulation
of experience we have come to expect,
a stripping away, a direct appreciation of all the elements
we are bound, one day, to find beneath our hands.
He stands in our minds so clearly now, his confident back
caught in the light from pale clerestory windows
and we note the way the slight tremor of his palms
disappears the moment they encounter wood.

In this light we hunger for maturity, see it not as stasis
but a form of love. We want the stillness and confidence
of age, the space between self and all the objects of the world
honoured and defined, the possibility that everything
left alone can ripen of its own accord,
all passionate transformations arranged only
through innocent meetings, one to another,
the way we see resin allowed to seep into the wood
in the wood's own secret time. We intuit our natures
becoming resonant with one another according
to the grain of the way we are made. Nothing forced
or wanted until it ripens in our own expectant hands.
But for now, in the busy room, we stand in the child's
first shy witness of one another, and see ourselves again,
gladly and always, falling in love with our future.
