    Hahnemuhle FineArt Announces Stunning New FineArt Paper

    In response to the growing demand for a superior fiber-based digital fine art media with the look and feel of a traditional darkroom photo paper, the Hahnemuhle mill is introducing the newest member of its digital FineArt media collection.

    As with all Hahnemuhle papers, FineArt Pearl has been developed to the highest standards 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 a surface that is remarkably similar to a traditional silver gelatin double-weight photo paper. In a side-by side comparison to similar papers from competitors, Hahnemuhle FineArt Pearl proved to be significantly superior in D-Max, white point and surface structure.

    When FineArt Pearl was previewed at PMA 2006 in Orlando, the response from those who saw the samples was overwhelmingly positive! We've already been flooded with inquiries about the paper. The good news is that FineArt Pearl 285gsm should be on shelves by mid to late April. It will come in all standard sheet and roll sizes.


    pH: 7.9-8.5
    weight: 285gsm
    brightness: >100 (final testing not completed)
    dmax: 2.88

    Missed it by THAT much...

    Thanks, Kelly. I recently tried some of the Hahnemuhle paper, and liked it a lot. This new paper would have been fun to try out for my upcoming show, except it looks like the release date will be a few weeks too late for me (have to start my serious printing in the next week or so).

    Still, I'll keep an eye out for it...
