Tradition
Created in 1557 by the Montgolfier family, the evolution and destiny of Canson ® are closely linked to the history of France and the history of art. Anchored in tradition, it respects the inheritance and the requirements to always deliver to the consumer a paper of excellence.


Innovation

Innovation is part of the company's genes. The Montgolfier invent the first hot air balloon in 1782. But they are primarily paper manufacturers. The company, over the centuries, creates many manufacturing processes such as the Dutch stack to shear the cloth, mass coloring to get a paper color even in the heart ... They also innovate with the wove paper and then the tracing paper in 1809. Canson ® obtained in 1865 a patent for a photographic paper which simplifies the printing operations.

Canson ® continues to offer products that are more in line with consumer expectations: school bags, technical drawings, art editions, papers for photography and digital art publishing ...

Internationalization

As early as 1926, Canson ® set up a subsidiary in New York. This is the beginning of a strong internationalization. Canson ® is now present in nearly 150 countries worldwide and world leader in fine art paper.

Accessibility

Canson ® is a mark of excellence. But we are also a company that seeks simple answers to the needs of our consumers whether they are professional artists or schoolchildren
