Press Release

In response to market demand and the success of FineArt Pearl 285gsm, Hahnemuhle FineArt is excited to announce the introduction of Photo Rag Pearl 320gsm. The new Photo Rag Pearl is an OBA free paper that combines the texture and base of our popular Photo Rag 308 with the luster of the acclaimed FineArt Pearl. The introduction of Photo Rag Pearl 320gsm expands the range of Hahnemuhle non-OBA, natural white media types such as William Turner 310 and 190gsm and Museum Etching 350gsm.

Hahnemuhle FineArt is proud to offer Photo Rag Pearl 320gsm on display at this year's PhotoPlus Expo in New York City. Please visit our booth #1217 at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, New York City, to view this stunning paper.

This year's Photokina, the international trade show for the imaging industry in Cologne (Germany), has been a huge success for Hahnemuhle. Pictures from Nick Brandt, Steven Katzman, Michael Gilbert and many others, printed on the new sought- after FineArt Pearl, were on display and attracted a lot of trade show visitors.

More than 5000 visitors took part in paper voting and chose their favorite fine art paper from the Hahnemuhle Digital FineArt Collection. The OEM partnerships with Canon and HP enabled Hahnemuhle to hold exclusive fine art printing demonstrations on their brand new inkjet printers.

Star photographers like Michael Gilbert, Mark Sadan and Manfred Kriegelstein were there to pass on their knowledge of photography, image editing, ICC profiles, fine art printing and more to inquisitive visitors. The Wunderbar winnders from the North-American dealer competition in 2005 were invited to the Hahnemuhle booth. They joined the Hahnemuhle USA team on a trip to Germany, where they received a tour of the paper mill and the opportunity to learn more about Hahnemuhle's long history of making fine art paper.
