Kenaf Debuts at PMA

RYE, NY and PMA - Mitsubishi Imaging (MPM), Inc., brings the beauty and art of Japanese Washi paper to inkjet printers with Pictorico ART Kenaf Paper and Pictorico ART Kenaf Paper Unryu. The papers will be unveiled at the 2009 PMA International Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas.

Photo professionals can sample Mitsubishi Imaging's complete lineup of Pictorico premium inkjet media at Booth #M191.

Both papers are acid-free, matte finish and made with environmentally-friendly kenaf fibers. Kenaf is one of the most promising non-wood alternatives for paper production. It's a fast growing, high-yield annual that has exceptional papermaking characteristics, requiring less chemicals, heat and time to process.

"Pictorico ART Kenaf is an elegant paper with tiny ribbons of fiber woven throughout," said Digital Imaging Assistant Product Manager, Yasu Harada. "It's destined to become a designer's favorite, especially for applications such as invitations and formal documents."

ART Kenaf comes in two thicknesses - 13.4 mil and 5.9 mil - and two finishes - regular and Unryu with a decorative surface - for a total of four unique inkjet papers. They are ideal for a broad range of fine art prints and produce excellent photo images. Both sides are printable.

Pictorico papers offer outstanding image clarity and absorb ink instantly, so there's zero smearing.

Pictorico is the premium inkjet photo and fine art media for professional photographers and artists.
