Product Information
Artist and professional photographers require archival print media for
their digital fine art and phtotgraphy. Now, in conjunction with our
new EPSON Archival™ Ink, we bring you this acid free, 100% cotton
rag fine art paper. Available in 225 g/m2 rolls for flexibilty and 425 g/m2
sheets for a museum quality feel, this bright white hot press paper has
the look and touch of Old World handmade paper. Capable of creating
1440 dpi, high-resolution prints this paper yields brilliant colors and deep
blacks. The paper is made exclusively for Epson by Crane & Co., makers
of fine specialty papers since 1801.
Like all of Epson's innovative media, this paper is engineered to give
you the highest resolution and color saturation possible. Epson's printer
driver software actually optimizes the amount of ink released onto the
page, based on the type of paper used. As always, EPSON supplies
guarantee EPSON quality.

Additional Comments
Indoor/outdoor usage
Indoor only
Lightfastness
200 years
(only when using EPSON Archival Inks)
Lightfastness ratings are based on accelerated testing of prints on
specialty media, displayed indoors, under glass. Lightfastness only
estimates the life of the ink, not the media.
Archivability
Excellent
To provide the best protection, keep prints behind a glass plate or
Plexiglas shield with UF3.
Resistance to water
Good
Bleeding does not occur with incidental water contact. However,
try to prevent exposure to moisture.
Ink drying time
Immediate
(less than 30 seconds)
Ink is dry to the touch after printing. However, it takes 24 hours
before it cures and becomes durable.
Handling requirements
Use gloves
Use gloves when handling the paper to avoid smudges and
fingerprints on the printing surface.
Mounting feasibility
Recommended
Use rag board or other high quality, acid-free mounting materials.
Lamination feasibility
Not recommended
If a protective coating is desired, use a fast-drying, acrylic spray
with a UV absorbent.
NOTE: Actual print stability and longevity will vary according to image, display conditions, light intensity, humidity, atmospheric conditions, and post-printing treatments.
Epson does not guarantee stability or longevity. For maximum print life, display all prints under glass or lamination or properly store them.
