April 5, 2007--Sihl Digital Imaging has introduced a new fine art paper for dye and pigmented inkjet printing. 3975 / 3976 UMBRA Fine Art Smooth 240 and 320 matte is a 100% cotton, acid-free art paper in a warm white finish (similar to traditional art papers), suited for fine art and photographic reproductions, and graphic images.
Available in a medium and heavy weight, UMBRA is an opaque one-side coated artist paper compatible with the latest innovations in printers for fine art and photo reproduction. Advantages include its light resistance with pigmented inks for 55 years without protection; 85 years behind a pane.
It produces excellent image sharpness, color rendering and instant drying time on a very smooth matte surface. UMBRA is targeted at monochrome photographic art where density, shadow, and depth are often lost with competitive products. Both 3975 / 3976 UMBRA Fine Art Smooth 240 and 320 matte are available in 17, 24, 36 and 44 inch width rolls by 40 feet long. Sample roll size is 36" x 16 ft.
