The FineArt industry will see a new paper that elevates FineArt printing to a new level. As the inventor and pioneer of genuine artist papers for inkjet printing, Hahnemühle fulfils the wish of many photographers to include a FineArt paper made of 100% cotton in the Digital FineArt Collection – this time with a metallic effect. The evenly shimmering metallic effect corresponds perfectly to the haptic of a real artists’ paper from the benchmarking Photo Rag®-family and makes Photo Rag® Metallic unique on the market.
The premium inkjet coating ensures bright colours, deep blacks and perfect colour and detail reproduction. The sophisticated silver metallic effect underscores the image and makes motifs with metallic elements, reflections, ice and glass, architecture and landscape shots, as well as black and white photographs with high-contrast tones, shine. Depending on the incidence of light, the metallic effect glimmers stronger and gives the printed motifs a unique liveliness.
Photographer Kitfox Valentín is delighted by the new Photo Rag® Metallic: “In my pictures, I dive deep into the world of finest details to accentuate and illuminate my compositions. With my picture of the series ‘Beatific / Caustic’, I attach great importance to the fact that the print exudes the iridescent mica or the rich shine of the composition. Photo Rag® Metallic radiates the bold, shimmering quality brilliantly. By pairing ‘Beatific / Caustic’ with the new Photo Rag® Metallic Paper, I was able to deliver high-quality FineArt prints to the world without compromising the image.”
The 340 gsm paper is made of 100% cotton and has no optical brighteners. Of course, Photo Rag® Metallic, like all Hahnemühle papers in the Digital FineArt Collection, is free of acid and lignin and meets the highest requirements for aging resistance. With different roll and sheet sizes, photographers can choose from a wide range of options. Users get the best printing results with our Hahnemühle ICC profiles. The ICC profiles are available for download on our website.
Hahnemühle is considered the inventor of Digital FineArt papers for inkjet printing. As a pioneer, the oldest German artist paper manufactory has been refining its real artist papers for photography and art reproductions for more than 15 years.
The papers – manufactured for more than 430 years with characteristic craftsmanship – receive a special coating, without influencing the noble haptics of the papers. This inkjet coating allows prints with pin-sharp details, in both rich colour and deep blacks. All papers have excellent aging resistance. The Hahnemühle Digital FineArt Collection offers more than 20 different papers, while the Hahnemühle Photo Range is comprised of eight papers.
Hahnemühle has a worldwide reputation as a ‘brand of the century’ among artists, photographers, museums, galleries and collectors.
Headquartered in Dassel, Southern Lower Saxony; with offices in the United Kingdom, France, USA and China; the company employs approximately 200 people worldwide.Posted: September 07, 2018|Categories: Large Format Media
