Canson® earned a Diplôme d’Honneur, the top award, at the Exposition Internationale de Photographie.

Canson®'s linen-finished photo paper earned them acclaim at the 1892 Exposition Internationale de Photographie: “From a photographic standpoint, Papeteries de Vidalon have attracted every specialist’s attention with a variety of products affording superior, and now renowned, quality.
These are papers in rolls for industrial photography, using a variety of processes and affording unquestionably superior results; and paper finished with linen, referred to as parchment fabric, also produced in rolls, recently perfected and manufactured especially for photography applications, using new processes.”
