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)
