Parrot Digigraphics' Certified Media Line for Pigmented Inks

(December 2003) posted on Fri Dec 19, 2003

For fine art and graphic arts applications


Parrot Digigraphics offers four new media for use with pigmented inks in museum-quality Giclee, photographic, and graphic-arts applications.

Parrot Premium Gloss Canvas is a double-weave, cotton/polyester blend that dries instantly. The bright white media has been optimized for high ink loads and a wide color gamut. It resists cracking when stretched, is water-resistant with pigmented inks, and is for use with Epson, Roland, HP, Mimaki, Mutoh, ColorSpan, and Encad printers. Premium Gloss Canvas is available in 13-, 24-, or 44-in. rolls.

Parrot Satin Fine-Art Duo watercolor paper is 100% cotton rag with an ultra-smooth surface that can be used for fine-art printmaking and photographic applications. The 325-gm, 19-mil, acid-free, high-opacity paper is coated on both sides for double-sided printing. It contains no optical brighteners and boasts a lifetime of 75+ years without yellowing. It's available in both sheets and rolls.

Parrot Photo Lustre Duo is an 11-mil photo paper with a high opacity (98%) to prevent ink bleed-through on double-sided printing. The sheets have a traditional photographic look and feel, as well as archival performance when printed with pigmented inks.

Parrot Photo Gloss 12-mil, instant-dry paper is designed for professional photographers. The extra thickness and water resistance improves handling and also allows for high ink loads, a wider color gamut, and high quality without cockling. Available in sheets and rolls, it is of archival quality when printed with pigmented inks. (Parrot Digigraphics : www.parrotcolor.com)
