Epson Intros New Pro Quality Legacy Photo Paper Line

At the PhotoPlus Expo show in New York City this past week, Epson introduced its most advanced line of photographic papers—Epson Legacy Papers. Designed in collaboration with many of today’s most noted photographers, these unique photo papers were developed for those who intend to exhibit and sell their prints to art collectors and investors.

Working closely with European papermakers, galleries and chemical engineers to develop the finest papers available, the Epson Legacy Paper line produces high quality black density and color fidelity, along with exceptional archival properties required for collectible works of fine art.

The Epson Legacy Paper line introduces four papers that utilize a microporous inkjet receiver layer to produce deep, rich blacks, expanded color gamut, and smooth tonal gradations with high image permanence. Using old world craftsmanship, along with the latest technological advancements in papermaking, allows for a consistent line of high-end papers printmakers can rely on.
