The new Legacy Textured Paper is Epson’s latest fine art paper for photographers seeking to make high-quality, long lasting prints of their best work.
Epson has just introduced the new Legacy Textured Paper, the latest addition with textured surface and matte finish to the sophisticated Legacy Paper family. This new paper fills the need for heavily textured fine art paper that combines old-world handcrafted paper with the latest that digital image technology has to offer. You should definitely check out this new offering if you’re looking to getting your best photos printed or even selling high-quality fine art prints of your work.
At Photo Plus Expo, EIC Chris Gampat and Reviews Editor Paul Ip had personal hands on time with the paper, and they equated it to a paper canvas. The big difference? Canvas has a different and less matte look than this paper and the texture is more “threaded” than the hills and valleys you’ll get with this newer paper.
The 310 GSM Legacy Textured Paper is 100% cotton on mould-made paper base, which lays the cotton fibers down randomly to noticeably minimize curl in large rolls. It also features a matte finish and a heavily textured surface reminiscent of old-world handmade watercolor papers. Free of OBAs (optical brightening agents), this paper produces a high Dmax for deep blacks, has an expanded color gamut volume, and can accommodate a high ink load.
Aside from the new addition to the Legacy Paper line, the popular Metallic Photo Paper in Luster and Glossy are now part of the Signature Worthy® paper line, which is designed especially for photography, art illustration, and fine art prints.
