Should or could this be printed on kraft paper? Thanks!

Wonderful linocut print I like it very much! As far as your question regarding paper for art prints you are limited for now to two grades of white matte substrate - neither of them kraft paper.

I remember reading somewhere that Minted doesn't print on kraft – there is a file you can use (one they supply) that gives the kraft background …I imagine you could try your image on that (or one of your own) and see how you like it. I haven't tried linocut is a long time – this has a great energy, and I think I am going to have to get playing around with that process again :)

Thanks guys! Yes I would have just used the kraft file to layer in behind. While I do like black and white, I was wondering if it felt a little stark for the 'nature' (pun intended) of fire wood.
