Epson in German papers - Epson has approved three Fine Art inkjet papers from the worldwide leading Hahnemühle Digital FineArt Collection for its Digigraphie program in France.
Photo Rag 308, Photo Rag Satin 310 and Museum Etching 350 are genuine artists’ papers with a premium inkjet coating from Hahnemühle. They distinguish themselves from other papers due to their extreme age resistance and are therefore ideal for the long-lasting FineArt prints in the Epson Digigraphie program.
With its Digigraphie program Epson allows artists to create limited, authenticated and certified editions of fine art prints. The prints must be produced using Ultrachrom or Ultrachrom K3 inks on professional Epson printers using papers specially designed for the Digigraphie program.
The main criterion for including the Hahnemühle papers in the Epson Digigraphie program: the age resistance of the papers and the corresponding longevity of the prints using the pigmented Epson inks. The Wilhelm Research Institute(WRI) in the USA regularly tests the light fastness of the inks of leading printer manufacturers such as Epson, HP and Canon on Hahnemühle Digital FineArt papers. The WRI certifies the pure natural papers an archival stability of between 60 and more than 200 years. depending on storage and presentation and depending on the inks used.
Photo Rag 308 Photo Rag Satin 310 and Museum Etching 350 are all genuine artists’ papers from the Hahnemühle Digital FineArt Collection that are ideal for fine art prints with a third and fourth dimension. The traditional production process and the premium inkjet coating guarantee a unique look to the Fine Art prints. Photo prints and art reproductions on Hahnemühle Digital FineArt papers possess a 3D impression due to the unique depth of the image and their huge colour gamut. And the unique feel of the pure cotton rag paper elevates the sensuousness and emotion of the prints to a fourth dimension.
The selection of Hahnemühle papers for the Epson Digigraphie program offers discerning artists papers in a white tone (Photo Rag 308), a natural white tone (Museum Etching 350) and a semi-gloss surface (Photo Rag Satin 310).
