New additions to OptiJet inkjet consumables range showed by Ferrania Technologies, PHOTOKINA 2006, HALL 6, STAND D079

Ferrania Technologies presents the innovations of its inkjet solutions portfolio during Photokina trade show in Cologne (Hall 6, Stand D079).

Excellent compatibility ensures consumers can print any image, graphic or text from most inkjet desktop printers.

Ferrania Technologies, thanks to its great experience in the photographic field, developed a system which relies on a perfect combination between the ink drop and the paper, and therefore guarantees the best digital printing quality for color images.

The compatible OptiJet? cartridges contain high quality inks, ensuring the best colour reproduction and excellent performance when compared to OEM ink.

They are now available for the following printers:

The OptiJetTM cartridge range offers a total of more than 60 items, suitable for Epson, Canon, HP and Lexmark printers, satisfying consumers looking for a compatible cartridge that gives the same printing results as the "originals", but at a lower cost.

Ferrania also presents a range of paper, designed to deliver the best image quality for both professional and amateur printing.

Revolutionary inkjet photo paper OptiJet Professional PLUS with PerDura protection is the most dependable and durable archival paper you can buy. It is instant drying, waterproof, smudge-proof, compatible with both dye and pigmented ink inkjet printers, and is the only microporous paper to eliminate ozone fading, the principal cause of image loss in microporous paper.

Glossy porous inkjet paper, while desirable for its instant drying, water fastness and compatibility with both dye and pigmented inks, has a big problem. Its porous surface allows ozone, which is all around us, to penetrate the printed surface and attack the dye-based ink. This phenomenon, known as gas fading or ozone fading, can cause inkjet prints to lose up to 70% of their colour density in as little as six months. The cure for this is Ferrania’s inkjet photo paper with PerDura technology. It stops gas fading and ensures long-term image permanence.

OptiJet Professional PLUS with PerDura get the acknowledgment TIPA AWARD 2005 as "Best inkjet photo paper 2005".

Ferrania also showcases a new paper in a value for money offer: OptiJet Premium PLUS A4 sizes, available in the format 240gr, 20 sheets, in the Buy one get one free promotional pack.

Glossy, instant drying, medium weight, OptiJet Premium PLUS has the real look and feel of a photo paper optimum for photo albums and frames.

All new OptiJet products are presented during the show in the new packaging layout. Clear, modern, readable, the new packaging will make OptiJet prominent and eye-catching on retailers’ shelves.

The new packaging development comes after in store market research that showed consumers confused when they have to understand and look for the best photo paper and the correct cartridge for their needs.

Ferrania always ready to adapt to market needs promptly developed a self explaining packaging perfect to help consumer choice.
