Hahnemuhle Introduces New Fine-Art Media
"? The new White Velvet is similar to German Etching. It is a bright white, strong velvet surface that contains 255 Rag and is coated to ensure accurate, high-fidelity color reproduction, outstanding saturation, and D-max. White Velvet is available in cut sheets (24 x 36 and 35 x 46.75 in.) and 24- to 44-in. rolls.
"? New Hahnemuhle wide-format media in 24 x 36-in. sheets: German Etching 310 gsm, Photo Tag 460 gsm, and White Velvet 268 gsm. These media are compatible with the Epson Stylus Pro 7600, 9600, and 10600, as well as with Mimaki, Mutoh, and Roland printers.
"? The Lumijet Preservation Series has a new coating, and is now optimized for pigmented inks. The papers have the same basic textures from the old Preservation Series media. New to the series are Masters Canvas 350 gsm and Woven Fibre 200 gsm. The Master Canvas is an instant-dry, microporous bright, white canvas for fine-art reproduction. In addition, the new series also contains: Classic Velour 290 gsm, Flaxen Weave, 205 gsm, Museum Parchment 210 gsm, and Radiant White Rag 290 gsm. The thickness of Museum Parchment has been reduced from 285 to 210 gsm, making it easier to feed through inkjet printers.
"? Hahnemuhle also announced three new Lumijet double-sided media: Art Two Sides, Silk Two Sides, and Velvet Two Sides. The additions to the Lumijet double-sided family allow artists and photographers more choices of textures when producing a portfolio. Art Two Sides has a matte surface and a 9-mil fibre base paper. Silk Two Sides is a natural white paper with a subtle, canvas-like textured surface. Velvet Two Sides is a smooth, natural-white, inkjet matte paper for detailed images.
In addition, Hahnemuhle is introducing its Pro Kit and myartregistry.com. The Pro Kit contains Art Proof paper, Certificates of Authenticity, CD of ICC profiles, samples of Hahnemuhle products, and details on myartregistry.com. Myartregistry.com is a website where artists can store information about their artwork for free; it is meant to publicly register the authenticity of their work.
