Jacquard’s Cyanotype Set
New Packaging for Popular, DIY Sun-Printing Set!

Jacquard is excited to announce a packaging reset for one of their most popular items, the two-component Cyanotype Set. The set now comes in a slick fold-over blister that is much easier to handle, ship, and display and has a much more “professional” look and feel compared to the previous, shrink-wrapped packaging. It makes a great gift for the holidays—for any type of artist!—with unparalleled value: for just $11.49, artists get enough material to make approximately 65 letter-size prints on paper or 50 prints on fabric!

Cyanotype is the original sun-printing process. After 175 years, it remains the simplest, most accessible, versatile, and magical photographic process. Photographers, mixed media artists, printmakers, quilters, drawers, painters and kids use it to create detailed prints from virtually any object that casts a shadow: tools, toys, plants, leaves, stones, sand, string, lace, etc. Jacquard’s Cyanotype Set makes sun-printing easier than ever!
