Ilford Galerie Gold Fibre Silk for Inkjet Printing

Ilford of Switzerland has released their newest brand of true baryta paper for inkjet printing, the Galerie Gold Fibre Silk, so new it does not appear yet on their website. But if you wish to purchase, they can be contacted for arrangements.

The Ilford Galerie Gold Fibre Silk is a 310gsm inkjet media featuring a traditional barium sulfate (baryta) base. The baryta base enhances the media surface producing the creamy whites and velvety blacks that form part of the unique look and feel of a traditional fiber based print; the standard among art photographers worldwide. Ilford says the media also produces real high definition images with an extended tonal range, making it a must for exhibition quality images, ranging from vivid color to dramatic black and whites.

The assembly is completed by a backing layer, which ensures that the final printed image has minimal curl. Galerie Gold has been specifically designed with no unnecessary additives in the media to guarantee the image lasts and lasts just like a traditional photo print.

The Galerie Gold Fibre Silk and other Ilford products are distributed in North America by Oji Ilford USA (OIUSA).
