Harman Photo launches new inkjet paper - Harman Photo release the Harman Crystal Jet Elite inkjet paper.
Harman Photo has announced a new addition to its range of high quality inkjet papers. The new product has been designed to offer superior levels of imaging performance.
Harman Crystal Jet Elite delivers exceptional quality prints with the appearance of real photographs. When compared with original Crystal Jet RC, the new paper has a cleaner whiter base colour with improved surface characteristics. The user will also find an enhanced contrast and sharpness, and a much richer colour gamut for deeper tonal ranges.
Harman Crystal Jet Elite has a 260gsm weight. It is compatible with the latest pigment and dye based inkjet printers and benefits from instant dry properties. It is available in a gloss or luster finish, in sheets and rolls. All the common sizes are available in a variety of pack quantities, plus there are now up to 7 roll widths to choose from. To help users get the very best results from the product, special profiles have been created with optimum settings for use on the most common printers, and are available to download from www.harman-inkjet.com.
Speaking of the new product, Howard Hopwood, Harman's Chairman said: “Harman technology was born out of the black and white side of ILFORD. In 2006 we launched our own range of fibre base inkjet products, drawing on our expertise of developing baryta paper products over 125 years."
"The Harman Photo range of FB papers were arguably some of the most capable in the market, and became highly popular with fine art photographers, professional photographers and the serious enthusiast. This range has now been enhanced and re-introduced under the Harman by Hahnemühle brand."
“In 2008, we complemented those fibre based papers with a resin coated paper that offered similar levels of quality at a lower price, making it perfect for test printing and day-to-day use by all photographers. This was the Harman Crystal Jet RC range."
“We are pleased to announce that we are now introducing an improved resin coated paper called Harman Crystal Jet Elite."
Steven Brierley, Director of Sales and Marketing, says “Since the launch of Crystal Jet RC in 2008, we have listened to our customers and their feedback on our products. We took this on board and the result is an improved resin coated inkjet paper that would still offer superior quality at an affordable price for the consumer.
Following customer trials I have to say that the new Crystal Jet Elite received universal approval and confirmed to us that we had improved the product in the right direction.”
