There is an exciting new paper arriving soon from Innova. The official name is Innova FibaPrint Warm Cotton Gloss. The market announcement will come at this years WPPI convention in Las Vegas. US shipment should begin the week of February 20th.
FibaPrint Warm Cotton Gloss is a 100% cotton paper. It contains no optical Brighteners (OBA) in the base or in the papers coatings. It has a total weight of 335 gsm (grams per square meter) which will give the paper a substantial feel without being too stiff.
Here is what Fine Art Photographer Pete Myers has to say about this new paper.
“The surface quality of the Innova rag-based paper is just stunning. Surface smoothness has everything to do with the fidelity of the final print, resolution and gradation. You simply cannot make a great print without a great surface, and to have a great surface based on rag is extremely difficult to do. The bottom line is that this will become my paper of choice for the production of my fine art prints. Iryna at Colorbyte did an outstanding job with the ImagePrint calibrations for the new Innova product.”
The base has been made as smooth as possible and the ink receptive layer is Innova’s latest generation technology.
US Roll sizes will be 17”, 24”, 36”, 44” and 60”. Cut sheet sizes will be available in 8.5 x 11, 11 x 17, 13 x 19, and 17 x 22.
