Brand Management Group (BMG), which signed a trademark licensing agreement with Kodak in Q4 2011, introduces the next generation of KODAK PROFESSIONAL Inkjet Photo Papers, Glossy Finish and Lustre Finish.
Both papers have been updated to take advantage of the wide color gamut and improved ink technology of the latest generation wide format inkjet printers from Canon, Epson and HP. They are expected to be available at LexJet by the end of the month. To find out about availability and to pre-order, contact a LexJet customer specialist at 800-453-9538.
“Photographers and imaging professionals who have relied on the quality and consistency of KODAK PROFESSIONAL Inkjet Photo Paper, Glossy Finish and KODAK PROFESSIONAL Inkjet Photo Paper, Lustre Finish will get that and much more from these next-generation papers,” says Justin Lehman, Brand Management Group vice president. “And, they retain the Kodak Professional watermark so the discerning end use customer knows they’re getting the high quality they expect from Kodak photo papers.”
Color testing with Monaco Gamutworks reveals a larger color gamut and higher Dmax to ensure that colors captured in-camera reproduce more accurately, while producing deeper, richer blacks, an expanded dynamic range and additional detail in shadow areas.
Moreover, the next-generation inkjet photo papers have been engineered to lay flat with little to no curl for smooth, trouble-free print production for a variety of photographic, fine art and display applications. Both inkjet papers are instant-dry with a bright white point and are compatible with dye and pigmented inks.
KODAK PROFESSIONAL Inkjet Photo Paper, Glossy Finish weighs in at 255 gsm with a smooth, high-gloss finish for maximum impact. KODAK PROFESSIONAL Inkjet Photo Paper, Lustre Finish weighs in at 255 gsm with a satin finish similar to E-surface papers used in traditional darkroom printing.
Both resin-based inkjet photo papers are available in various sheet and roll sizes up to 60 inches wide from Brand Management Group’s network of worldwide distributors, which includes LexJet.
