Epson has launched a new photo paper for professional photographers. They call it the Epson Traditional Photo Paper, designed to work with the companyâ€™s Micro Piezo inkjet printers and its UltraChrome K3 Ink with Vivid Magenta.
Epson says photographers who have previously worked in a darkroom will appreciate the nostalgic smooth and glossy finish, reminiscent of the prints created using traditional techniques.
Epson Traditional Photo Paper prints will dry instantly, are acid and lignin-free and will remain flat before, during and after printing, to create professional quality prints. It is a heavyweight paper at 330gsm and is available in A4, A3+, A2 and 24″x36″ sheets, according to the company announcement.
For comparison, Epson boasts that their TPP achieves a higher D-max than the traditional Baryta papers used during the chemical or analogue process.
