JJ van Heerden sent through this announcement about a new paper they have in stock.
We have just finished our setting up and experimenting on a new paper from Fuji. It is a Crystal Archive paper (i.e. 60 years fade-proof guarantee) with a sparkling metallic finish. It really makes an image pop. Photographs seem to get a 3D quality, metallic sheens are reproduced faithfully with golden light and reflections gaining a bronzed quality. I will bring some samples to the next meeting. I have never been this excited about printing before.
At the moment we can only print 203×254mm or 203×305mm, but we will switch to 254×305mm and 254×381mm as soon as the wider paper arrives. Prices are as follows:
- 203×254mm: R21.95
- 203×305mm: R25.95
- 254×305mm: R34.95
- 254×381mm: R39.95
Members of HPS get their normal 15% printing discount on these prices.
