Crane the manufacturer of Museo cotton papers plans
to launch a new paper at PMA 2006. Museo Silver Rag is a new kind of
paper category. Here are some highlights:
- Pure cotton rag
- 300 g paper weight
- Coated with a transparent satin coating
- You print with Photo Black (not Matte Black)
- dmax close to Epson Luster paper with Ultrachrome K3 inks
- No optical brighteners (natural white)
- Reduced scuffing
We used some sheets of beta paper and like this paper more and more.
It is a good candidate to be our future standard fine art paper. Very
good compromise between the natural look/feel of cotton rag papers
and a dmax only known from glossy RC papers.
We are sure other paper manufacturers will also introduce papers in
this new category. Needless to say that we follow this paper category
