“Signing is a very special moment for me as a FineArt photographer. It is the end of a long process – from the photograph itself, to the selection of pictures, the editing process, the composition of series, the selection of the suitable paper, the proof prints … Only at the very end is the picture as it is meant to be, as it is allowed to hang on the wall. The signed photo makes the individual photo a part of the limited edition – like a knighthood! Of course, the pen with which I end up testifying to this with my signature is very important. It has to glide over the paper in harmony with the paper and the stroke of the ink is not allowed to be interrupted during the run. It must be easy to use, but look firm. I have experienced all this when signing with the new Hahnemühle Signing Duo Set – a very smart experience that makes me want to sign even more of my images!”
As enthusiastically as Arina Dähnick celebrates the final signing of her FineArt photography, we celebrate the “Hahnemühle Photography Month” with new products such as the Signing Pen Duo Set, brand new and limited Portfolio Boxes, interesting facts about FineArt inkjet papers, live talks with photographers and giveaways. And you are cordially invited!
19 August 2020 marks the tenth anniversary of World Photo Day – an international event for photographers – to celebrate their passion and fascination for photography.
Inspired by this date we at Hahnemühle dedicate a whole month to photography. Because: Those who take photos love printing. So we have prepared great highlights on our social media channels over the next four weeks.
What have we planned in detail?
The first week is all about the Hahnemühle Photo Rag® family. Experience the history of the most famous Hahnemühle inkjet paper which fans around the globe – from the first Photo Rag® paper to the latest TIPA award-winning innovation Photo Rag® Metallic.
Apro pos Photo Rag® Metallic: In the second week you will experience the premiere of Hahnemühle’s coveted Portfolio Box in the 2020 limited edition. The exclusive Hahnemühle Portfolio Box is back and this year it is filled with the latest TIPA award-winning papers from Hahnemühle: Photo Rag® Metallic, Bamboo, Hemp and Agave.
In Hahnemühle Photography Month we dedicate the third week to the Hahnemühle Natural Line. Sustainability is close to our heart. As the inventor of digital FineArt papers, what would be more natural for us to develop sustainable papers? We protect what matters and offer unique FineArt inkjet papers made from exceptional, sustainable raw materials: bamboo, hemp and agave (sisal). Follow us and ask your dealer for the new papers!
Last but not least the fourth week is all about Printing, Protecting and Authenticating. We are introducing the Hahnemühle Signing Pen Duo – the exclusive set with one perfect pen each for signing on matt and glossy papers. We will also introduce the Hahnemühle protective products such as Protective Spray, Varnish, Certificates of Authenticity and archive boxes.
