Epson has announced that its well-received range of fine art quality papers, previously only available in cut sheet sizes, are now also available in roll form.
The range of fine art papers - Hot Press Bright, Hot Press Natural, Cold Press Bright and Cold Press Natural – has become very popular within a very short space of time with leading artists, photographers, museums and galleries around the world.
The range of papers - linen and acid-free, and made of 100% cotton – are available in warm white and bright white, with either a smooth or textured finishes. The textured versions have a distinctive patina that is reminiscent of traditionally-made watercolour paper with the advantage of consistency of finish and colour rendition. Optimised for use with Epson’s UltraChrome ink technology, and certified for use with the recently announced EPSON Digigraphie programme, they deliver outstanding results with richer blacks, smoother tonal transitions and an extended colour gamut.
The papers are fully compatible with Epson’s recently-launched large format fine-art printers, the 24inch Epson Stylus Pro 7890 and 44inch Epson Stylus Pro 9890.
“Epson’s fine art papers are noted for their superb image quality, tactile characteristics and colour handling,” notes Martin Johns, market development manager, Pro-Graphics, Epson UK. “Offering the stock in rolls from 17 to 60 inches wide will allow artists and exhibitors greater freedom when producing very large or unusually-sized pieces, while faithfully reproducing all of the vibrancy and subtlety of the original work that the cut sheet sizes have become renowned for.”
- Unique surfaces produce an original look and feel, with exceptional print quality.
- Ph-Buffered 100% cotton substrate, free from linen and acid, ensures consistent and long-lasting results.
- Specially-developed coating gives wide colour gamut and rich blacks (high DMax).
- Same quality and weight as existing cut-sheet media, thereby extending use to include large and/or unusual-sized prints.
