Clever customers of ours for years have been using our free paper cutting service to receive crisp, clean and accurate half and quarter sheets of their favourite watercolour paper sheets. Now, however, we’ve made this service even more convenient. We’ve added a choice in your basket that comes up automatically for all qualifying watercolour papers so that as soon as you’ve selected your paper it can be pre-cut in-house, without you needing to add an order note.
How to use Jackson’s Art Supplies pre-cut watercolour paper service:
- Select your watercolour sheets and add them to your basket.
- Click on your basket and select from the drop down below each sheet if you want a sheet cut in half or in quarters.
- Proceed through the checkout process as normal or keep shopping.
- Enjoy your specially cut paper without the hassle of cutting it at home.
Why get your watercolour paper cut?
The best quality watercolour paper is often only available loose in large Imperial sheets measuring 30 x 22 inches (76 x 56cm) and while this size would make an impressive watercolour painting, it isn’t suitable for all watercolourists. For those who want to work in a smaller scale but still want to use the best watercolour paper available, getting sheets pre-cut means fewer processes to go through when the paper arrives. Choosing ready cut paper gives you the option of how many of each size you want, an option not available when using pads that often contain between 20 to 100 sheets. Using watercolour paper sheets that have been ready cut means you avoid the risk of ending up with small sheets that have damaged edges from pad glue or with roughly cut sheets that have been ineffectively cut at home. We use a guillotine to cut your watercolour paper and will accurately cut your paper to size, meaning you can have the half and quarter sheets you want without any exertion.
We don’t offer this service for our Jackson’s Eco Paper as we have a large variety of sizes and their lovely deckled edges are such a unique feature. Jackson’s Eco papers are made using special small moulds that mean imperial half and quarter sheets of this watercolour paper have four beautifully, deckled edges.
