Paper is a versatile medium, capable of having many different qualities. For this reason we are pleased to present at Photokina in Cologne our products around the topic of fine art inkjet papers. In a new hall, with a new logo and many highlights. Flip through our online photokina magazine with many some more topics and scroll down for the latest news.
FineArt Baryta Satin
Photokina will see the premiere of a new paper in the Digital FineArt Collection: FineArt Baryta Satin.
“FineArt Baryta Satin exceeds my already high expectations. Using Hahnemühle papers allows me as an artist to spend more time creating the images in a way I would like them to be seen and not have my art held back by the limitations of the media on which it is produced”, quotes photographer Mark Mann.
The natural white FineArt Baryta Satin captivates due to its satin finish and provides exceptional image results with large colour gamut and intense color reproduction.
FineArt Baryta Satin is an ideal medium for colourful photographs as well as black and white photographs and reproductions as it provides an extremely deep black (Dmax), rich colours and an outstanding sharpness of details to achieve high resolution images.
The 300 gsm paper is made of 100 % α-cellulose is acid-free, contains no optical brighteners and meets the requirements for longevity according to ISO 9706.
Hahnemühle Photo Silk Baryta
Hahnemühle FineArt is going to present at Photokina 2014 a true baryta inkjet paper with TIPA Award. Photo Silk Baryta 310 from ‘Hahnemühle Photo’ range has been acclaimed “Best Inkjet Photo Paper” of the year 2014 by the
Technical Image Press Association.“Photographers who seek the look, feel, and tonal depth of traditional silver halide in an inkjet paper will be quite pleased with this Hahnemühle Photo Silk Baryta 310 offering. The paper’s unique barium sulphate coating offers rich monochrome and brilliant colour reproduction in a weight that speaks to both its high quality and ease of handling for mounting and display” stated TIPA journalists from magazines of the imaging industry.
Hahnemühle Protective Spray and Varnish
To protect valuable fine art prints, Hahnemühle presents Protective Spray and Hahnemühle Varnish, both with improved formulations. Samples of both products are available on request at the trade show booth.
Hahnemühle Protective Spray protects digital Fine Art prints from external influences. The aerosol spray lays like a fine film on the paper, without changing the paper structure. It fixes colours of pigment- and dye ink and prevents an eventual colour fading also the intensity and the high brilliance of the colours stay permanently. The coating increases the abrasion resistance of Fine Art papers, so the risk of fingerprint marks and scratches are reduced.
Protective Spray makes the sealing of the surface water repellent. The improved formulation is fast drying and virtually odourless. A yellowing of the print due to the spray is not possible.
The Hahnemühle Varnish especially developed for all Hahnemühle Canvas grades protects your artwork from UV light and humidity. The coating with a new formulation ensures a vibrant colour and a water resistant surface. The flexible coating with a new formula minimises the often occurring “whitening” (white cracks). The ready to use varnish is easy to apply with a foam roller. It remains crystal clear even after repeated painting. According to customer requirements the varnish is available in three qualities. So the surface of a canvas print can feature a glossy, satin or matte finish. The varnish is available in an easy to handle 1 litre or in a 5 litre container.
Inkjet Photo Cards
Great impressions make the smallest photokina novelties: Hahnemühle´s popular FineArt Inkjet Photo Cards are now available in four grades. We present in Hall 3.1, A25 printed mini–portfolios of various artists.
