Epson Reveals Legacy Papers


Epson’s advanced line of photographic papers were designed in collaboration with many of the world’s greatest artists. These unique papers were developed for those who intend to exhibit and sell their prints, both to art collectors and investors.

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

‘Collaborating with a team of the industry’s leading photographers and fine artists, Epson handpicked the finest papermakers to develop and produce this new line of paper,’ said Jeffrey Smith, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. ‘Crafted in revered European paper mills, the Legacy Papers bring together all the treasured experience of old world handcraftsmanship with the latest technology, to produce the world’s finest, most beautiful papers.’

The Legacy Paper line introduces four papers that use an industry leading microporous inkjet receiver layer to produce deep, rich blacks, expanded colour gamut, and smooth tonal gradations with outstanding image permanence. Using old world craftsmanship, along with the latest technological advancements in paper making, allows for a consistent line of high-end papers printmakers can rely upon.
