Ilford launched five new fine art papers in the Galerie Prestige range for museums and galleries where matte papers are highly demanded.
The new Ilford Galerie Prestige range comprises of: Gold Fibre Gloss, Cotton Artist Textured, Fine Art Smooth, Textured Cotton Rag and Smooth Cotton Rag.
Galerie Prestige Gold Fibre Gloss, the glossy complement to the popular Ilford Fibre Silk, has a baryta-like surface, a traditional photo fibre base and the look and feel of a traditional baryta photo paper. Ideal for high quality black and white and colour images, it offers a wide colour gamut for vivid images and excellent sharpness, making it perfect for digital toning.
Due to their different surface structures, Ilford’s three new matte fine art cotton papers address several applications and target groups.
Galerie Prestige Smooth Cotton Rag: has a very smooth surface for motives with very fine structures, making it ideal for photo-realistic prints showing every detail of the photo.
For those who prefer structured media, Ilford offers two papers which differ in the strength of their structure: the Cotton Artist Textured with a watercolor textured surface and Textured Cotton Rag, that has a smoother one.
All cotton papers have a weight of 310gsm, a high colour consistency and colour gamut. They are water-resistant and contain no optical brighteners. They meet criteria for durability according to ISO 9706 and are base-manufactured in a traditional paper mill.
Galerie Prestige Fine Art Smooth is a warm tone paper with excellent image sharpness and large colour gamut. It is made from alpha cellulose and has a durable light resistance with pigmented inks, making it excellent for fine art printing, photography and portraits. It has a weight of 200gsm.
