For Fine Black-&-White Prints: New Sunset Fibre Baryta Paper

We’ve rounded out our line of fine art and photography papers with the all new Sunset Fibre Baryta 310gsm. A favorite among photographers who specialize in black-and-white printing, baryta is a coating of barium sulphate that is layered onto photo paper before the final coating.

Baryta papers are favored because they deliver more intricate details and definition as well as a greater range of black and gray tones, and has archival qualities. The very white pigment of the baryta layer produces a neutral white shade and a smooth texture. The result is the ideal surface for inkjet printing on an acid- and lignin-free paper that’s compatible with all dye and pigment inks.

Using Baryta Papers to Achieve Black-and-White Excellence

For Wonderwall Studio in Austin, Texas, the presentation is as much of an art process as the creation of the artwork itself. The company prints and finishes a variety of images from photographers and artists around the world, and a key focus is choosing the right media to print to. The master printers at Wonderwall print to paper, canvas, wood, metals, mirrors and acrylic frames and boxes, to name a few.

Grand Central StationCompany co-founder and 20-year artwork printing pro Joseph Garcia says he mass-produced artwork in the past, but today his team focuses primarily on high-end art. To stay true to the artist’s or photographer’s work and deliver it in a variety of applications, working with quality substrates is paramount.

For black-and-white image printing, Garcia says he relies on Hahnemuhle FineArt Baryta 325g and Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308g, both currently available at reduced pricing from LexJet. This image of Grand Central Station, at left, was printed on the Baryta paper.
