Ilford reveals new inkjet photo paper to mimic ‘traditional’ papers (update)
November 17, 2015
Designed to be compatible with Canon, Epson and Hewlett-Packard printers, Ilford Studio comes in two weights: 250gsm ‘for the look and feel of a traditional photo paper’; and a 200gsm version for framed prints and posters, for example.
They each come in both Glossy and Satin versions, in sheet sizes ranging from 10x15cm, and 30m rolls.
Arnoud Mekenkamp, managing director of Ilford Imaging Europe said: ‘The Ilford Studio range has already received a positive response from customers that have used traditional photo paper in the past and are delighted to get the same photo quality from their digital prints.’
The new paper will run alongside Ilford’s Galerie inkjet paper, which was relaunched last year following a rescue deal triggered by the demise of its former manufacturer, Ilford Imaging Switzerland.
Mekenkamp added: ‘We know that Ilford customers are looking for quality and I believe that we have delivered that with the introduction of the range of Ilford Studio photo papers.’
A UK price has not been announced.
