Epson To Ship New Papers

Matte papers enhanced for photography By Dave Nagel
Epson will make several changes to its current line of matte papers for its Archival Ink printers and other wide-format models. The changes include a new roll paper, a new poster board and a double-sided matte line. All three new products are targeted toward photographic applications.

The first two products (the roll and poster board) are designed for Epson's Archival Ink systems. Both offer a flat matte surface and are designed to provide a wide color gamut and a bright, white base for highlights. Epson says the paper also improves the lightfastness of Archival systems (up to 100 years under glass with Archival Inks, 10 years without).

The 100-foot rolls will be available in 24-inch, 36-inch and 44-inch widths. (Epson also offers the paper for its standard desktop printers in smaller sizes.) The Enhanced Matte Poster Board will be available in 24 inch x 30 inch and 30 inch x 40 inch sizes. It's 1.2 mm thick.

Epson has also introduced its new double-sided matte paper. It has the same coating as Epson's Matte Paper Heavyweight on both sides. It will be available in 47 pound stock.

The double-sided matte paper will be available in mid-November for $17.95 in packs of 20. The new matte roll paper will sell for $79 for the 24-inch paper; $119 for the 36-inch paper; and $149 for the 44-inch paper. The poster board will sell for $95 for 10 sheets in the 24 inch x 36 inch size and $95 for five sheets in the 30 inch x 40 inch size.
