Fotospeed Fine Art Paper - Matt

Platinum Etching 285 Signature Paper

Platinum Etching 285 is 100% acid free, fine art paper with a velvety, textured surface.  A natural white base and state of the art ink-receiving layer, delivers a high D-MAX and wide colour gamut.  Platinum Etching is 25% cotton and 75% alpha-cellulose.  When used in conjunction with pigment inks, the paper will ensure a print life of more than 85 years. 


Charlie Waite said of Platinum Etching: "Landscape photography is about discovery.  I believe that photographers can only fully relish the rewards of their efforts when the image is seen in the form of a print. The paper used for that print must be as carefully considered as the image made. Paper technology changes with time and ongoing advances mean that photographers need to look regularly at their paper choice, rather than automatically playing safe with an old favourite. Discovering Platinum Etching 285 has been a revelation to me and has proved a vital tool in my ongoing quest to match pre-visualisation with end result.
