YUPO Synthetic Paper

Opus PLUS Member Sale


January 330, 2019

YUPO is a slick, smooth, non-absorbent synthetic (polypropylene) substrate that dramatically changes the way you paint, print or draw.

Its matte, bright white surface gives artists the flexibility to work in several different mediums to achieve unique and creative results. Perfect for any artist who likes to experiment with their materials, and great for any use where a durable end product is desired.

Use this dimensionally-stable paper with acrylics, alcohol inks, oil pastel, pencil/graphite, and watercolours. For watercolor applications the surface may be wiped clean to restore the original white of the sheet, making it possible to lift colour for highlights or to correct errors with ease. It's also a wonderful printmaking paper, excelling for use with monotype and silkscreen, as well as offset printing and debossing.

YUPO Synthetic Paper is made of 100% polypropylene, a polymer that is used both as a plastic (for microwave-safe food containers) and as a fibre (for indoor/outdoor carpeting). This unique duality contributes to YUPOs ability to be durable, tear- and wrinkle-proof, yet lightweight. This tree-free paper is acid free with a neutral pH, waterproof, and recyclable.

Start experimenting with YUPO today! BC artist and educator Nancy Crawford shares some ideas on how to pair it with India Ink in this Opus video:

Medium YUPO is 197 gsm (74 lb) and Heavyweight YUPO is 390 gsm (144 lb) weights; Translucent YUPO is 153 gsm (104 lb).
