The lab that hand prints my photographs uses only Hahnemühle papers to ensure the best possible results in both colour and black and white printing.
– Photo Rag Bright White 310 matt photo paper.
Photo Rag Bright White is one of the most popular printing media produced by the prestigious Hahnemuehle paper mill, made of 100% cotton fibre.
With its smooth and delicate surface, this premium quality paper is designed to bring extreme brilliance to both colours and monochrome images with excellent clarity. Ideal for both black and white and colour printing, it meets museum standards for digital FineArt.
It is an Epson Digigraphie certified media.
– Matt Photo Paper – Fine Art Museum Etching 350.
Museum Etching is an art paper made of 100% cotton fibre, free from optical brighteners.
This product combines a characteristic texture with a natural white base colour, making it the ideal support for art reproductions and for printing photographs in both warm and neutral tones.
Thanks to the use of exclusive and high quality cotton fibres, Museum Etching also meets the most stringent standards for archival materials and resistance to ageing.
It is an Epson Digigraphie certified support.
– Satin Photo Paper – Photo Pearl 310.
This medium is recommended for the reproduction of colour photographic images.
It has a pleasant silk-effect surface finish and with its wide tonal range allows you to obtain saturated images and reach the highest quality levels.
It is the most widely used medium for exhibition and furniture panels and its satin-finished surface reduces reflections.
Fine Art Canvas Matte Cotton – Epson Matte Canvas – Daguerre Canvas 400
Very high quality canvas with a matt finish. The realistic effect is achieved by applying glossy or matt final varnishes by brush and then by hand. These varnishes are manufactured using natural resins, the same ones used in painting as a final protective coating for oil paintings.
These treatments give my photographic works printed on canvas an appearance similar to a painted painting, increasing the overall brilliance, the rendering of details – especially in the shaded areas – and giving the images incredible depth.
Digigraphie Certification and Preservation of Prints
The professional laboratory I use issues each Fine Art print with a certificate on a sheet of fine watermarked paper, uniquely matched to the print it refers to.
Fine Art printing with Digigraphie certification allows photographic artists, galleries and museums to create certified limited editions of their original works thanks to Epson’s most advanced printing technology with Epson UltraChrome HDR™ pigment inks, which guarantees absolute quality.
The use of premium media, such as Photo Rag Bright White, a high quality, 100% cotton fibre paper made by the prestigious Hahnemühle paper mill, ensures prints with the extreme brilliance and sharpness needed to meet the standards of museums and art galleries.
Fine Art prints should be stored away from heat sources and any Passpartouts and Boxes should be chlorofree.
Use and store prints at a relative humidity of 35 to 65% and a temperature of 10 to 30 °C.
