I have used quite a bit of Breathing Color Stirling 250gsm. Very smooth, no OBAs, slightly off white, acid free cotton.It has the typical look of a fine etching paper. A number of artists printing here prefer it to other matte art papers. It profiles well and is as consistent as any other paper. The company has a direct marketing approach which keeps prices down. Packaging is OK but not slick and is a little inconsistent.I have found them responsive to any hassles. A phone call to a local number here in Australia automatically switches you to the marketing manager in the USA. He must sleep during the day.They are a bit cagey about how the manufacturing line works. The best information I have is that paper is European , probably Italian (Fabriano ?), with coating in the USA. Any further information here would be interesting. Their so called "Flagship" product is "Elegance". which is very similar to Hahnemuhle PhotoRag in gamut (ie very good) and texture .
