Shades of white

What is an OBA
OBAs are optical brighteners that are added to the paper coating to make the paper appear whiter than it actually is. The down side is that the OBAs fade quickly leaving you with colour shift and is undesirable in Fine Art prints. The reason the OBAs are added is mostly because natural paper is quite yellow especially when compared to you display. This will affect your colour choices and can be a problem if you need very pure colour to pop when you print them. Most manufacturers will use the purest pulp in their paper to minimise the use of optical brighteners.
