New Fujicolor Crystal Archive Digital Pearl Paper™ yields high quality glossy professional commercial prints
Fujifilm will shortly introduce its new Fujicolor Crystal Archive Digital Pearl Paper™ - a new silver halide colour photo paper suitable for professional commercial prints.
Fujifilm Product Manager – Paper & Chemistry, Jennifer Chan, said the new Pearl Paper has been designed exclusively for digital output and will be available in Australia from September this year.
“The embedded pearl-like crystals featured in the Pearl Paper are a special type of pigment known as pearl mica pigments that produce a high gloss reflectance, particularly in the highlights,” Ms Chan said.
“This pearl effect enhances the warmth and depth of printed images. However, the technology does not affect physical properties such as paper cutting.
“Designed to accommodate the growing and diverse demands of commercial prints, Pearl Paper also enables photographers to expand their customer print options.
“When used in conjunction with such systems as Fujifilm’s Frontier Digital Minilab, Pearl Paper yields high quality digital prints that are ideal for professional applications such as portrait, fashion or commercial photography.
“The thick base and high stiffness of Pearl Paper also enhances its durability.
“Commercial photographers will find the lustrous and rich textural quality of Pearl Paper particularly beneficial where the subject matter involves highly saturated colours, fabrics or metallic objects.
“Portrait photographers will appreciate the capability of Pearl Paper to accurately reproduce a wide range of skin tones while adding a distinctive look to wedding packages and other creative opportunities.”
Ms Chan said Pearl Paper is coated with the latest digital emulsion technologies renowned with Fujicolor Crystal Archive papers.
“It also incorporates the latest cyan coupler known as X-Coupler Technology which enables the paper to reproduce subtle shades of green and the most vibrant shades of blues and red.
“NLS (New Low Stain Spectral-Sensitiser) and ARR (Advanced Resistance-to-Radiation) Technologies produce pure whites and distinct highlights, and suppresses colour paper fogging caused by ambient radiation to ensure unexposed Pearl Paper retains its whiteness,” Ms Chan said.
Fujicolor Crystal Archive Digital Pearl Paper™ will be offered in a range of sizes up to 50 inches wide and will be available in Australia from September 2007.
