The products offer a high level of detail and an image clarity that will impress even the most demanding artists. Cut sheets and rolls up to 60'' width are available for shipment.

Heidi Vincent, International Product Manager for Digital fine Art and Photo explains: "Our range, tested by the Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc., has been developed with a new process that has enabled us to get an un-rivalled whiteness without using Optical Brightening Agents on many of our papers. This technological innovation addresses the concerns of artists, museum managers, art and photo collectors."

Chris Crangle, International Director of Sales and PR for Canson Infinity, has solid experience of over a dozen years as a key force in the progression of the fine art and photo digital printing marketplace, and has used his expertise about this market to contribute to the development of the new Canson Infinity range. Crangle states, "This new Canson Infinity range has real character! It offers amazing properties that cannot be found anywhere else! For example: Traditional print makers who are switching to Inkjet technology are going to find, in a digital version, the original and unique mould made, 100% rag, printmaking paper ; BFK Rives, which has been produced for more than 500 years and used throughout centuries for lithography, intaglio etchings, and engravings by world-renowned artists. Other traditional papers, including Arches Aquarelle, Montval Aquarelle, Montval Torchon, and Mi-Teintes, from Canson and Arches, are now offering their characteristics to photographers and artists wanting to print digitally using legacy papers."
