The tradition-rich manufacturer of the finest artist quality papers will be starting the year by releasing several new product innovations. From 27th-30th January, Hahnemühle will be attending Creativeworld, in Frankfurt; here we will launch two new papers for traditional print making and several new watercolour papers.
‘Harmony Watercolour’ is made from pure cellulose and comes in three different paper surfaces, while the ‘Expression Watercolour’ is made from 100% cotton. These two papers are suited for every wet-painting technique. By introducing surface sizing to these papers, makes them incredibly user-friendly and particularly resilient to reworking.
The popular watercolour postcards are now available in a matt surface. With rounded corners and an address field printed on the back, these 30 limited-edition cards come in an exclusive metal box.
‘Hahnemühle 1584’ is an unsized cotton paper, particularly suited for woodcut and silk-screen printing.. “The demand for top-class papers for traditional printing techniques is growing,” reveals Ann Kristin Nohlen, Hahnemühle’s head of marketing and communication. “This paper combines the experiences gathered over generations with innovative production procedures.” Hahnemühle 1584 features a particularly smooth surface while being extremely colour absorbent; even when applying multiple layers of colour.
Another paper for classic printing techniques is the 300gsm “Mould-made Printmaking Paper” made of 100%cotton rag, a new product for the specialised artist trade.
Just as it was the case in previous years, Hahnemühle can be found in hall 4.1, booth E10. This year, the artist Alexa Dilla from Berlin will be on site to entertain and educate the visitors with her painting demonstrations. She will provide tips and suggestions regarding Urban Sketching and Hand Lettering, as well as watercolour painting.
Hahnemühle produces paper since 1584 and is the oldest German paper mill for artist papers. Besides traditional artist papers digital FineArt papers for inkjet prints are part of the portfolio today. The development and manufacture of technical specialty papers for industrial and research is another priority. Headquartered in Dassel and with offices in the UK, France, USA and China, Hahnemühle employs around 180 people.
