At this year's PMA show, Premier introduced
several new wide-format media:
PremierArt Luster Rag, Hot Press, and
Water Color papers. All are compatible
with dye-or pigment-based aqueous wideformat
thermal or piezo printers such as
HP, Canon, and Epson. These fine-art
papers are designed for use by fine-art
photographers, artists, and archivists,
and are available in standard sheet and
roll sizes.

PremierArt Luster Rag is an acid-free,
100% cotton rag paper. The 335-gsm, 23-
mil, moulde-made paper features a
single-sided coating that is instant-dry.

PremierArt Hot Press, available in four
weights from 205 to 500 gsm, is mouldemade
100% cotton rag paper. Its coating,
which Premier reports provides a high
D-max, intense color density, and photographic
image clarity, is water-resistant
and instant dry. The 205-gsm paper is 12
mil thick and coated on two sides; the
250-gsm paper is 15 mil thick and is
coated on one side; the 325-gsm paper is
17 mil thick and coated on two sides; and
the 500-gsm paper is 26 mil thick and
coated on a single side.

The 210 or 310-g textured PremierArt
Water Color
papers are alpha cellulose
acid- and lignin-free. They feature a single-
sided instant-dry coating, a coldpress
texture, and are 12 and 15 mil thick. (Premier Imaging Products:
