FineArt Pearl – Hahnemühle Announces Stunning New FineArt Paper

As with all Hahnemühle papers, FineArt Pearl has been developed to meet the highest standards of FineArt photographers using only the finest raw materials and manufacturing techniques. FineArt Pearl 285gsm is a triple coated, lignin free, 100% alpha-cellulose paper. The result is age resistant paper with a surface that is remarkably similar to a traditional silver gelatin double-weight photo paper. Hahnemühle FineArt Pearl proved to be significantly superior in D-Max, white point and surface structure. Black values can be truly enhanced to all-time levels by sealing the print with the Hahnemühle Protective Spray.

Museum Etching – a natural paper extremly age resistant

The new Hahnemühle Museum Etching quality will be launched in Europe to coincide with Photokina. With a grammage of 350 gsm it is an artist’s board made of 100% rag. The new quality features the typical texture of a copperplate board and due to its surface texture and natural white colour it is the ideal medium for art reproductions and photographs with warm shades or grey nuances. Due to the exclusive use of rag, a fibre difficult to extract from the cotton plant, Museum Etching complies with the high archival standard for age resistance.

Hahnemühle Inkjet Photo Albums

Promotional portfolio presentations, impressive photo albums or a small print run of prestigious exhibition booklets – the Hahnemühle Inkjet Photo Albums offer ambitious photographers endless possibilities. The lavishly designed albums are now available as sets with 20 sheets of Natural Art Duo paper with a grammage of 216 gsm and 22 interleafs.
