EPSON PREMIUM SEMIMATTE
The semimatte paper offers a smooth sheen and finish. It is a great “in-between” paper that isn’t quite glossy, but it isn’t as textured as the luster paper. Semimatte lends itself to all kinds of imagery, especially those with smooth color gradations, soft textures, etc.
EPSON PREMIUM LUSTER
The luster paper offers a softer look to images and is most popular for framing portraits, family photos, and wedding work. This paper has less glare than glossy paper which lends itself better to being framed behind glass. It is also less likely to show fingerprints than its glossy counterpart. All images look great on luster paper including black and whites.
EPSON PREMIUM GLOSSY
The glossy paper offers a sense of “pop!” to all that is printed on it! A sleek, gloss finish gives a great touch to vibrant color photos and monochromatic images alike. Because of the sense of contrast this paper gives off, it will make your images seem to stand out more.
EPSON METALLIC LUSTER
Metallic paper is photo paper that has a silver base, as opposed to a traditionally white paper. This metallic base gives a fantastic touch to all images. As you view the paper in different angles, light is reflected in a way that gives colors and grays a “pop!”. This is a fun paper to experiment with and take photographs to another level. The luster finish is the same as the EPSON PREMIUM LUSTER; it has the softer textured finish with minimal glare.
EPSON METALLIC GLOSSY
Metallic paper is photo paper that has a silver base, as opposed to a traditionally white paper. This metallic base gives a fantastic touch to all images. As you view the paper in different angles, light is reflected in a way that gives colors and grays a “pop!”. This glossy finish is the same as EPSON PREMIUM GLOSSY; sleek, shiny finish giving even more pop!
EPSON COLD PRESS BRIGHT
Cold Press Bright is one of our fine art textured fiber-based paper. It has more weight than the standard premium series of papers. It also emulates more of a watercolor type paper. The “bright” comes from OBAs (optical brightening agents) which makes the paper fluoresce in the presence of UV light. This gives the paper a bright-white look. Cold Press Bright works wonderfully for art reproductions, black-and-white imagery, as well as images you want to give that classic “art” look.
EPSON COLD PRESS NATURAL
Cold Press Natural has all the same qualities as its Bright counterpart, with the exception that it does not have OBAs. The lack of brighteners gives the paper a warmer white look. This warmer base is a compliment to artwork and imagery that is also warm or doesn’t have any stark whites.
EPSON HOT PRESS BRIGHT
Hot Press Bright is another fine-art fiber-based paper and has a smooth finish. It is another excellent option to give artwork and photographs a sense of elegance and timelessness. The smooth finish lends itself to black-and-white imagery with all kinds of gradations and art reproductions.
HAHNEMUHLE DAGURRE CANVAS
Daguerre Canvas is a poly-cotton bright white canvas and is an excellent way to elevate any image and create art. Whether it is a stretched canvas or framed, it renders color beautifully as well as gradations in grayscale photographs. Original paintings can also be photographed and reproduced using this canvas to offer giclee prints.
