PRESS RELEASE: Hahnemuhle Rolls Out Photo Rag Pearl 320
New 320 gsm fine art paper from the Hahnemuhle Digital FineArt Collection available in March
Hahnemuhle FineArt presents Photo Rag Pearl 320, the 24th paper in its TIPA award-winning premium product line. Samples from the first production run were first showcased at Photo Plus Expo in New York. The response to Photo Rag Pearl was so favorable that the paper is now being included in the Digital FineArt Collection. The new paper is a natural-white, OBA-free, pure cotton rag paper with the soft, smooth Photo Rag surface combined with the innovative Hahnemuhle pearl coating.
Many professional photographers and semi-professional users have been waiting patiently for the launch of a natural white paper with a rag base and a pearl coating. Photo Rag Pearl 320 will be available this March in all common sheet and roll sizes.
The new paper features a high Dmax and a large color gamut that enables the reproduction of the finest color and black and white images. The precious feel of a real cotton rag paper with a pearl coating offers sensuality and emotion to fine art photographs and art reproductions.
Photo Rag Pearl 320 is ideal for fine art photo prints with both warm color and grey tones, and also for art reproductions. Due to the exclusive use of cotton rag the premium paper is extremely age resistant and complies with the highest conservational standards. Its product features make it an ideal addition to the worldwide leading Digital FineArt Collection from Hahnemuhle, and it is perfectly aligned for the latest printer and ink generation from HP, Canon and Epson.
(Editor's Note: The company confirmed that ICC profiles for the new sheet will be available on its Web site.
