PORTRAIT RAG 285gsm
This classic from the PermaJet range retains its 100% cotton base and subtle texture while making it marginally lighter at 285gsm. This product is acid-free and meets the highest digital art standards. Certified by an independent UKAS laboratory this material, like many PermaJet products, exceeds the Fine Art Trade Guild's archival standards and is ideal for Art and Photo reproductions. The original media has been used for many years as a standard for comparing printer performance. The surface retains detail superbly. Key statistics from the audit are the very low values for the Macbeth errors and skin tone errors of less than 2.0, the error in skin tone lightness values was zero.
PHOTO ART SILK 290gsm
The popular surface and finish of the Smooth Art Silk has been updated to a 290gsm base offering printer-friendly loading. The unique ink-receiving layer that exhibits the silk/satin sheen once printed on has been developed to give greater colour vibrancy and increased scratch resistance.
Previously we have measured slightly lower gamut volumes for this media but not this time; this returned the highest values of the range, 30% higher than the last data set with the highest Dmax also at 1.78.
There are 170 days to get ready for The Societies of Photographers Convention and Trade Show at The Novotel London West, Hammersmith ...
