NEW YORK (October 28, 2008) - Legion Paper, the nation's premier paper company dedicated to the art of fine print, announced its Moab brand will equip National Geographic photographers with its award-winning Entrada Rag printing paper. The paper is exclusively featured in custom portfolios developed by Lost Luggage for National Geographic.
"We are thrilled that Entrada Rag was chosen by National Geographic and Lost Luggage as the exclusive photo paper for this project," said Gregory Schern, director, Digital Imaging, Legion Paper. "National Geographic photographers are known for their amazing photos and high-quality prints, and Entrada Rag will provide a sensuous surface to bring their photos to life."
Made in the United States from 100 percent cotton, the Entrada Rag paper line features a unique inkjet-receptive surface treatment to increase color gamut and maximize ink loads. Its acid-free surface is available in both bright white and natural finishes.
"Lost Luggage selected Entrada Rag paper for its superior printing quality and matte, uncoated finish that gives photographs a high-end quality comparable to most professionally printed books," said Nadine Brown, president, Lost Luggage. "The double-sided finish allows images to be printed on both sides of the page for a fine-art book feel."
Twenty-seven photography portfolios were created as part of the National Geographic partnership, all of which feature Entrada Rag paper. Already the recipient of a national award, as well as ample industry recognition, the portfolios allow photographers to quickly create their look-books and easily remove and add photos, without investing much time and additional cost.
