Hahnemuhle's Proofing Paper Conserves Costlier Art Media

Helps printmakers preview what final print will look like

Big Picture

According to an item in the Digital Art Supplies newsletter, Hahnemuhle plans to offer a lower-priced 110 gsm, natural-white artist matte proofing paper that has the same inkjet-receptive coating as its more expensive papers.

Digital printmakers who want a hard-copy "preview" of how their finished print will look can simply output the image on the new art-proofing paper and save the more expensive paper for when they have achieved the look they desire. The paper will be available in 8 1/2- x 11-sheets and 24-in. rolls. (Digital Art Supplies: www.digitalartsupplies.com)
