its really nice paper but it is super soft and can easily be damaged.

Maybe not delicate but soft

Either way, I like mats on this print, although you certainly don't need it. Don't think I've seen one floated.

The paper does seem delicate, like you could easily rub a hole in it if you tried. I haven't seen one floated. I know it's possible but it seems kind of big for that.

Odd, as it is supposedly 280gsm. Pretty much every print I own is in the 270-300gsm range. Don't remember handling this one, as it went straight to the framer in the tube.

I don't think you could rub a hole through it. It's thick paper, just very soft and susceptible to moisture and bending edges with light banging.

Maybe not a hole, but the texture seems like you can rub away at it. It's softer than most of my other prints.

Matted mine as well…..not a fan of floating prints.
I don't remember the paper being delicate. Most were a little dinged up due to the lack of kraft paper though. Obviously not a big issue.

***hype alert***
I honestly don't know what it would take for me to let mine go.
