Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Metallic Wins TIPA World Award
Hahnemühle Photo Rag® Metallic inkjet photo paper was named Best Inkjet Photo Paper in the 2019 TIPA World Awards program conducted by the Technical Press Image Association (TIPA). The TIPA World Awards are selected by the editors and publishers of 30 photo and imaging magazines around world.
In announcing the award, the judges noted that “Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Metallic adds a special touch to fine art images. For printmakers who want an extra ‘glow’ on selected images, this 100% cotton, 340 gsm, natural-white paper offers a high-gloss metallic finish. The paper features a special silvery shimmering surface effect for bold colors, a deep black, and fine delineation of color and tone. It is a prime choice for images with metallic elements, reflections, ice, snow, or architecture. It also is a unique choice for black-and-white images with high-contrast tones. Photo Rag Metallic has no optical brighteners, is acid and lignin free, and is ISO9706 compliant for high age resistance.”
Photo Rag Metallic is the newest addition to Hahnemuhle’s renowned Photo Rag® family of products that take fine art photo printing to a high level of quality. While the metallic effect shimmers evenly across the print to create distinctive visual effects, the paper retains the feel and structure of a classic artist paper.
Hahnemuhle is the oldest German artist paper manufacturer and was a pioneer in developing fine art papers for inkjet printing. This is the seventh TIPA award Hahnemuhle has received for its fine art papers. Hahnemuhle Product Manager Andrea Sippel said this newest TIPA award, “boosts our innovative power and strengthens our worldwide reputation as a quality leader.”
