Printing Media

Canson Platine Fibre Rag 310 gsm – Satin

Canson® Infinity Platine Fibre Rag is the combination of the premium 100% cotton Platinum paper that Canson has supplied for many years to the original Platinum and Platine photographic market, with the latest microporous coating, making the traditional darkroom paper now available for your digital printing.

Setting the benchmark for Digital Darkroom papers, Platine Fibre Rag provides the aesthetic and feel of the original F-Type Baryta Fibre paper, having a true pure white tone without using optical brighteners that are known to affect the longevity of digitally produced images.

Platine Fibre Rag’s extremely high Dmax and exceptional grey tones make it the product of choice for the more discerning black and white as well as colour photographic prints.

Canson Edition Etching Rag

Canson Edition Etching Rag is a 100% cotton Fine Art paper with a smooth texture, reminiscent of the original genuine etching and printmaking papers. It’s one of the whiter papers available, and has a just a hint of texture. Visually it’s closer to Hahnemuhle’s Photo Rag than Canson’s own Rag Photographique is.

This museum-grade paper provides deep blacks, excellent image sharpness, optimum colour graduation and its unique slight grain makes it ideal for printing detailed work, colour photographs and exceptional black and white portraits.

Ilford Galerie Matt Cotton Medina

Boasting the most luxurious velvety surface texture because of its special coating, the Matt Cotton Medina offers a beautiful natural white toned paper like the traditional artists paper of old. Free of optical brighteners, completely archival and consisting of a sturdier weight, this robust paper is built for longevity, allowing you to enjoy your beloved art prints for longer.

Ilford Galerie Smooth Pearl 310GSM

GALERIE Smooth Pearl paper features the very latest HDR (High Dynamic Range) optically clear coating and coupled with recent advancements in inkjet receiving layer design, makes this the reference media for producing images with superb clarity, high sharpness and excellent color gamut.

The high-density, resin coated heavyweight base and smooth pearl finish not only eliminate glare and fingerprints but with its natural photographic white tint, produce prints with the true look and feel of a photograph. For outstanding imaging performance, combined with the benefit of “touch dry” from the printer, this pearl surface media is the “choice of professionals”.

Ilford Galerie Smooth Cotton Sonora

The ILFORD GALERIE Smooth Cotton Sonora – manufactured exclusively from cotton fibres – lends images a particularly intensive impression due to its lightly structured surface. The pleasant, soft haptic and the natural white colouring of the paper correspond to that of traditional art print paper.

The surface texture is wonderfully smooth and velvety and is acid and OBA free.

It is predestined to produce dramatic art prints, reproductions, artistic photos, exhibition prints, posters, exclusive invitations and interior decorations in colour or in black and white.

Ilford Galerie Fine Art Canvas Galicia

Is a cotton/polyester blend designed to deliver the best in professional photographic digital prints. It is a robust stretchable canvas with a high resistance to cracking and superior framing performance. It also incorporates an advanced inkjet receiving layer, which provides excellent image sharpness and optimum colour gradation.
