We are discovering new ways to use Sheer Heaven every day - with the help of artists and artisans around the world. Since Sheer Heaven was released in early 2001, the word we hear most often from our customers is “love”.

Sheer Heaven has a “right” side for printing and artwork. It can be felt as a suede-like finish as opposed to the absolutely smooth finish of the back. If you cannot feel the difference, hold a sheet lightly on the flat of your hand. The sheet will curl very slightly in the direction of its back side. There are also many techniques that can be done on the back side - like paste paper effects, and the addition of backgrounds behind art already finished on the front.
