Deckle Edge Inkjet Art Papers Add Hand-Crafted Touch to Gift Prints

When making gift prints this holiday season, consider using deckle-edge sheets of one of three popular Hahnemuehle inkjet fine art papers: William Turner 310 gsm, Museum Etching 350 gsm, and Photo Rag® 308 gsm.

Deckle Edge

A deckle edge is the irregular, feathery, torn-paper border that is traditionally associated with handmade art papers. Deckle-edge inkjet prints look and feel more like hand-crafted prints.

The deckle edges are particularly striking on prints that will be displayed in a floating frame. In a floating frame, the print appears to hover in front of the mat or decorative backing. Because the print isn’t positioned beneath the mat, the visible raw edges add a textural, dimensional element to the framed print.

All three Hahnemuehle digital fine art papers available with deckle edges are manufactured to meet high standards of archival quality. These 100-percent cotton papers are acid- and lignin-free and calcium carbonate buffered to neutralize acids from the environment.

The William Turner and Museum Etching papers are free of optical brightening agents (OBAs) that can cause papers to look yellow over time. Photo Rag contains a small amount of OBAs to whiten the paper and improve the colors and details in printed photographs.

Hahnemuehle Deckle Edge William Turner 310gsm

William Turner 310 gsm is a mould-made, fine-art paper with a distinctive textured surface. Use it to reproduce original watercolors and drawings or to print digitally composed art. It can also be used for black-and-white and color photography.

Hahnemuehle Deckle Edge Photo Rag 308gsm

Photo Rag 308 is a matte, white fine art paper with a smooth, fine-grained surface. This paper is a good choice for black-and-white photographs and digitally composed art that include a lot of detail and tonal gradations. The surface coating is designed to control image clarity even with heavier ink loads.

Hahnemuehle Deckle Edge Museum Etching 350gsm

Museum Etching 350 gsm is natural white, matte art paper with a finely textured surface. The texture and weight of this paper emulate the look and feel of the boards old-world printmakers used to make prints from etched metal plates.

Printing and Handling Tips

When printing on deckle-edge papers, use a thick-paper print setting and make sure no fibers along the edge of the paper are sticking up.

For prints that will last for generations, use a pigment-ink photo printer (such as the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO Series or Epson SureColor P or Stylus Pro). Store the papers and prints in archive-quality envelopes, folders, and boxes. Use only archive-grade tapes and glues for mounting and framing.

Handle the papers with care, and keep them stored at a relative humidity between 35% and 65% and a temperature between 50⁰ and 86⁰ F.

Travel Photographer Gives Prints to Clients After Memorable Assignments

For travel photographer Steve Filipiak, life is short and the world is wide. Steve has worked in the travel industry for more than 16 years, capturing stunning images from more than 40 countries. His work has appeared in magazines such as Travel + Leisure, Conde Nast Travel, and Departures as well as newspapers such as the New York Daily News travel section.

He describes his style as “spontaneous and insightful,” just like any good adventure should be.

After shooting assignments, Steve likes to give his clients 11 x 14-inch prints as beautiful, lasting reminders of the experience. Depending on the nature of the image, Steve uses 13 x 19 inch sheets of Kodak Professional Inkjet Photo Paper Glossy 255 gsm or Kodak Professional Inkjet Photo Paper Lustre 255 gsm.

“I find that Kodak Professional Inkjet Photo Papers produce a more color-neutral print. Some other brands of photo papers tend to produce a yellowish hue,” said Filipiak. “This is even more noticeable when printing in black and white.”

Compare the Look and Feel of Inkjet Photo Art Papers at PhotoPlus Expo

During PhotoPlus International Conference and Expo in New York Oct. 26-28, many sessions will discuss mind-scrambling imaging technologies such virtual and augmented reality. But if you prefer the timeless pleasure of viewing a well-crafted photographic print, you will find lots of inspiration in booths that show inkjet photo art papers.

The newest inkjet photo printers from Canon and Epson will be displayed at PhotoPlus Expo, along with a slew of excellent inkjet photo art papers, canvases, and display products from Moab, Innova Art, and Hahnemühle. You can see, touch, and compare their latest offerings and see superb examples of great photographs on different types of fine papers. And, if you time your visit right, you may meet some of the renowned photographers behind the featured images.

MOAB

Moab will be showing their new Flint portfolios. Available for either 8.5 x 11 in. portrait-mode pages or 19 x 13 in. landscape-mode pages, the screw-post portfolios easily convert collections of printed images into stunning presentations. Printed images can be changed out without a lot of time or effort.

Flint portfolio by Moab

Innovative adhesive hinge strips can be applied to any Moab Paper. Each portfolio can hold 25 sheets. The pages are bound between matte-black acrylic exterior panels that resist scratches and fingerprints. Watch a video demonstration of the Flint portfolio on YouTube.

Moab will also show their new Entrada Rag Textured 300 fine-art paper. It is the first addition to Moab’s renowned Entrada papers in more than 10 years. The 100% cotton, 300 gsm, 22.5 mil paper has a warm tone and subtle texture. The defined, but restrained, texture enhances the printed image without being distracting. It provides a Dmax and tonal range that are unparalleled for cotton matte paper.

Use Entrada Rag Textured to make archival fine art photography, art reproductions, portraits, or high-end posters on Epson, Canon, or HP professional inkjet photo printers that use pigment inks.

In his review on the Moab Paper blog, Moab Master photographer Harold Davis writes that “The primary difference between Entrada Rag Textured and the original Entrada Rag Natural is, of course, the texture of the surface. But what you have here is an elegant, refined texture—not an over-the-top ‘watercolor’ paper.” He suggests that, “the images that work best with Entrada Rag Textured are artful, and intended as art (as opposed to, for example, journalistic-style imagery).”

INNOVA

Innova Art will be celebrating the collaborative creative process at PhotoPlus Expo. Innova staffers will be joined in the booth by photographer Jim McHugh and urban artists Joe ‘Prime’ Reza and David ‘Big Sleeps’ Cavazos. The three men have been collaborating for the past three years. During live painting sessions, Big Sleeps and Prime will be painting their own distinctive lettering over photographic prints by Jim McHugh. Each piece will then become an original piece of art.

Booth visitors can attend live Q&A sessions with the artists and learn more about how collaborative art projects can work. A limited number of attendees can take home signed, limited-edition prints on Innova archival inkjet paper.

The Innova team will be on hand to explain how to choose the media type best suited for your work. Archival inkjet media from the Innova Editions, Fine Art, Photo Art, and Canvas collections will be on display so you can see and feel the difference between the materials.

Products from Innova Art’s JetMaster® Display Systems line will also be on display. With the JetMaster Photo Panel, you can create frame-free displays.

What Printer Users Should Know About National Forest Products Week

sustainable forest

Every year since 1960, the President has proclaimed the third week of October to be National Forest Products Week. At Freedom Paper, we believe everyone who buys paper for their wide-format inkjet printers should be aware of some of important statistics that will be highlighted during this year’s National Forest Products Week from Oct. 15-21.

In his proclamation, President Trump said, “During National Forest Products Week, we recognize the invaluable contribution forest products make to our daily lives, the forest products industry’s importance to our economy, and the incredible beauty and recreational opportunities provided by our Nation’s woodlands…Our Nation is blessed with millions of acres of forested lands. These lands produce abundant renewable and sustainable natural resources that support our economy. They provide 2.4 million jobs, primarily in rural communities across America, and produce products that help improve our everyday lives.”

celebrating forests

The proclamation also notes that, “America’s thriving forest products market helps protect and preserve our abundant forests for future generations. Demand for forest products encourages landowners to replant and maintain healthy forests, knowing that through proper stewardship and responsible management, our precious forests will continue to contribute to our economic prosperity and quality of life…We acknowledge and celebrate the many uses of our parks, forests, and woodlands, and we honor the dedicated Americans who work to ensure our forests remain productive and magnificent for future generations.”

Pulp and Paper from Sustainable Forests

In a blog post about National Forest Products Week, Phil Riebel of Two Sides North America encourages Americans to “Celebrate the Sustainability of Paper from Well-Managed U.S. Forests.” He notes that wood products are not only used for paper and packaging but also for furniture, homes, railways, and fuel. Wood cellulose that is released when wood is processed into pulp is used to make products such as ping-pong balls, sports helmets, nail polish, and synthetic fibers for clothes and towels.

He explains that growing healthy, growing forests are an important part of our culture and play a key role in absorbing carbon dioxide, releasing oxygen, and storing carbon over time.

Many forest products, such as pulp and paper, come from sustainable forests, which have increased in size since 1990. Forest area in the U.S. increased from over 302 million hectares in 1990 to about 310 million hectares in 2015. (A hectare is 10,000 square meters or 2.47 acres.)

A fact sheet about sustainable forest management says the notion that going paperless saves trees gives a false impression that forests are a finite resource that is being destroyed: “In truth, North American forests are a renewable resource that is continuously being replenished using sustainable forest management.”

By providing a dependable market for responsibly grown fiber, the North American paper industry encourages landowners to continue managing their forestland instead of selling it for development or other non-forest uses. Studies have shown that the areas of the world that consume the least amount of wood experience the greatest forest loss.

Plus, pulp and paper-making plants have made substantial progress in increasing their use of renewable energy sources and reducing their carbon footprint. According to a fact sheet on energy usage in paper-making, “Roughly two-thirds of the energy used by North American pulp and paper mills is self-generated, using renewable, carbon-neutral biomass in combined heat and power systems.”

When paper and printing are responsibly produced, Two Sides North America believes that print on paper can be an effective, powerful, and sustainable way to communicate ideas and information.

Six Tips for Preventing Paper-Related Inkjet Printing Problems

Wide format inkjet printer with print

If problems such as paper cockling, head strikes, or slow print drying affect your ability to efficiently produce high-quality prints, don’t automatically blame the inkjet paper.

Wide format inkjet printer with printWhile the quality of the ink-receptive coating on the paper could be the culprit, paper-related inkjet-printing problems are typically caused by changes in humidity or using the wrong profiles or print settings.

Consider these six tips for reducing the likelihood of paper-related inkjet printing problems.

—Store inkjet paper in a room in which the temperature and humidity are controlled.

—Or, keep the paper in the room in which it will be printed for 24 hours before printing it.

—Maintain the relative humidity in your production space between 45 and 55%.

—Take note of any moisture losses or gains that occur when outside air enters the workspace from nearby doors or loading docks. Consider installing barriers such as plastic or forced air between the docks and your production area.

—Keep the paper shrink-wrapped and away from outside walls.

—Use the recommended print settings for the type of inkjet paper are using. Not all paper types are designed to handle the same levels of ink densities. Sihl, and other inkjet media vendors, have downloadable print setting recommendations for the type of wide-format inkjet printer and paper you plan to use.

HP Latex Inkjet Media Helps Print Businesses Diversify

HP Premium Poster Paper

Freedom Paper is expanding the range of latex inkjet media we offer for producing different types of wide-format prints.

Our business is evolving because we know yours is too.

Some companies that first used HP DesignJet printers for signs, graphics, and reprints of architecture, engineering, and construction drawings now use HP Latex printers to print durable indoor and outdoor signs, posters, graphics, and wallcoverings.

HP Latex inkjet media has helped print-for-pay firms that use HP Latex printers produce a huge range of applications including vehicle wraps and stickers, outdoor textile signage, traffic signage, and interior decor.

What are latex inks?

HP introduced latex-ink technology in 2008 as an alternative to solvent inks that used fluids with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to carry the pigment.

Latex inks use a polymer to encapsulate the pigments, which are then suspended in water. After the ink is jetted through HP’s thermal printheads, heat evaporates the water and activates the polymers to bind the pigments to the media.

Graphics printed with latex inks are more durable than prints with aqueous dye or pigment inks because of the way the ink binds with the substrate. They are more water-resistant and scratch-resistant than the aqueous dye or pigment inks used in office inkjet printers.

Outdoor graphics printed with HP Latex inks on HP Latex inkjet media can last up to three years outdoors without lamination. Prints output with HP Latex inks on HP wallpapers can last up to 20 years indoors.

Materials for Posters and Wallcoverings

Here are the two newest HP latex inkjet media Freedom Paper offers for use with HP Latex inks.

HP Premium Poster Paper is a 9 mil, 200 gsm poster paper for HP 300 and HP 3000 series printers that use the third-generation HP Latex inks introduced in 2013. This paper is ideal for trade-show and event displays, retail graphics, photo-realistic posters, bus shelter graphics, and decorative art reproductions. It is available in 36-, 54-, and 60-inch rolls.

 

HP Premium Poster Paper

HP Premium Poster Paper is suitable for a variety of indoor and outdoor graphics as well as decorative art prints.

HP PVC-free Durable Smooth Wall Paper is a smooth, white wallpaper material that can be used to produce custom wall murals in all types of commercial, healthcare, and educational facilities. The printed wall paper installs easily with common wallpaper adhesives and comes down with traditional removal methods.

 

HP PVC-free Durable Smooth Wall Paper

Use HP PVC-free Durable Smooth Wall Paper to print colorful murals tough enough for high-traffic environments in offices, schools, and healthcare facilities.

Unlike wallcovering materials printed on vinyl (PVC), HP Durable Smooth Wall Paper is odor-free. The wallpaper resists damage from water, abrasion, scrubbing, mold, and mildew. HP PVC-free Durable Smooth Wall Paper is FSC-certified and meets Type II (ASTM F793) wallcovering standards for use in commercial buildings. It also meets REACH and UL Greenguard GOLD requirements for materials that are safe enough for use in healthcare facilities and schools.

Other types of HP Latex inkjet media available from Freedom Paper includes:

HP Light Fabric for direct printing of soft signage and easy-to-transport trade-show displays and banners

HP Permanent Gloss Adhesive Vinyl for printing signs that will be mounted to rigid surfaces

HP Professional Satin Photo Paper for retail graphics, photo posters, and photo enlargements

Holograms on a Certificate of Authenticity Add Value to Art Prints

Hahnemuhle Certificates of Authenticity

A certificate of authenticity (COA) is a document that gives art buyers more information about your work. In addition to proving that you created the work and retain the copyright and reproduction rights, the COA helps future collectors of the art trace its origins.

Hahnemuhle Certificate of Authenticity

If you plan to sell your limited edition prints of your paintings or digitally created art, it’s beneficial to create a COA even if you aren’t sure your work will ever become collectible. Many art buyers want some proof that the print isn’t an unauthorized copy. Buyers also like having a record of how and when the art was created.

The COA for each print should contain information such as:

  • your name and website
  • the title of the artwork
  • the dimensions of the piece
  • the medium used to create it
  • the date the art was created
  • a copyright notice

You could download a template for a COA and print it on a nice piece of paper. But Hahnemühle offers a long-lasting, professional-looking option that can add to the perceived value of your print.

 

The Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity and Hologram System not only assures can buyers that your art print is genuine, but can also help reduce the risk that your print and COA will be copied without your permission.

Each certificate is made of premium deckle edged mould-made paper with a Hahnemühle watermark and fluorescent security fiber. After the certificate is printed, place one serialized numbered hologram on the certificate and apply a second, identically numbered hologram to the back of your art print.

Combining the certificate with the tamper-proof hologram assures buyers that each Certificate of Authenticity relates to one particular piece of art. For example, your COA would state that “This Fine Art Print is the second of a limited edition of 10 prints (hologram 001503 to 001512) signed by the artist.”

You can register unique copies and limited editions of your art on www.myartregisty.com

Freedom Paper sells the Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity and Hologram System along with a nice selection of Hahnemühle fine art papers for inkjet printing on wide-format inkjet photo printers or desktop cut-sheet photo printers.

Use This HP Double Matte Film for Both PageWide XL and DesignJet Printers

For high-performance printing at the high speeds of the PageWide XL printers, HP updated its line-up of inkjet-printable papers and films for technical drawings and GIS images. One featured product is 4-mil HP Double Matte Film on a 3-inch Core.

HP Double Matte Film for inkjet printers

This translucent 4.8 mil double matte polyester film is optimized for high-speed pigment-ink printing on the HP Page Wide XL series of printers. But it also works with HP DesignJet printers and other models that use aqueous dye or pigment inks.

HP Double Matte Film is has an inkjet-printable coating on one side, and a markable static-minimizing surface treatment on the other side. The markable side enables you to make manual edits and annotations in pencil or ink on documents such as architecture, engineering, and construction drawings, overlays, and GIS images.

The tear-resistant, dimensionally stable film produces sharp, dense lines that don’t bleed and consistent color, even at high speeds. The inks don’t smear or transfer when prints are stacked or overlaid. Prints on this material are recyclable.

Freedom Paper now offers HP Double Matte Film, 3 in. Core. It is available in 150-ft. rolls in 7 popular widths from 22 inches to 40 inches. A 24 in. x 25 ft. sample roll is also available.

About PageWide XL Technology

The HP PageWide Xl printer uses “single pass” print technology. As the paper moves rapidly beneath a fixed array of printheads, all of the ink is applied in one pass. This is much faster than a standard wide-format printer in which the paper advances incrementally as the printhead moves back and forth across the paper, laying down the ink in Instead of multiple passes.

HP PageWide XL Printers

To achieve high quality prints in a single pass, the advanced technology of HP PageWide XL printers requires special ink formulations. It also requires strict control of how these advanced pigment inks interact with the paper or film.

On the PageWide XL materials, some of this control comes from how the papers and films are manufactured. When the base paper or film is made, manufacturers include additives that interact with the pigment inks to control how the ink behaves on surface of the material. This treatment, called HP ColorPRO technology, produces fast-dry papers that yield high-contrast blacks, more striking colors, and sharper lines.
