Epson Now Shipping Expanded Selection of its Signature Worthy Papers to Professional Photographers and Fine Artists
 
LONG BEACH, Calif. – Jan. 12, 2010 – Epson America is now shipping an expanded offering of Signature Worthy papers to professional photographers and fine artists. This expanded collection includes new Epson Hot Press and Cold Press Papers and Epson Exhibition Fiber Paper, all of which are optimized for use with award-winning Epson Stylus Pro printers.

 Offering advanced capabilities, these media types are poised to redefine fine art markets in unique ways. Epson Signature Worthy papers enable photographers to achieve images with richer blacks, wider color gamuts and smoother tonal transitions that define the ultimate expression in print making.

“Epson fine art papers were inspired by the hand craftsmanship of artisans who developed the first watercolor papers and were vigorously tested to ensure prints have the highest print quality with consistency from roll to roll and sheet to sheet,” said Jeff Smith, product manager, professional imaging, Epson America. “In combination with Epson professional printers, these Signature Worthy papers give professional photographers and artists exciting new substrates that enable them to realize their creative vision.”

Optimized for use with Epson Stylus Pro Printers and inks, including new Epson UltraChrome HDR ink technology (found in the Epson Stylus Pro 7900 and 9900), the new Signature Worthy Hot Press and Cold Press Papers yield richer blacks, smoother tonal transitions and an expanded color gamut to produce the most advanced fine art prints. The Hot Press papers offer a smooth surface and Cold Press papers feature a textured surface. In addition, Hot Press and Cold Press Bright offer a bright white point, while the Hot Press and Cold Press Natural offer a warm white point.

Epson Exhibition Fiber Paper and Signature Worthy Hot Press and Cold Press fine art cut sheet papers are now available through authorized Epson Professional Imaging resellers. For more information on Epson’s complete line of professional media, visit www.proimaging.epson.com.
