Epson is launching a new paper for professional photographers seeking smooth, glossy photographs with high colour saturation.

Epson Traditional Photo Paper is a professional quality media, designed to work with Epson's Micro Piezo inkjet printers and its UltraChrome K3 Ink with Vivid Magenta.

Epson claim photographers who have previously worked in a darkroom will appreciate the nostalgic smooth and glossy finish, reminiscent of the prints created using traditional techniques.

However Epson Traditional Photo Paper prints will dry instantly, are acid and lignin-free and will remain flat before, during and after printing, to create professional quality prints. It is a heavyweight paper at 330gsm and is available in A4, A3+, A2 and 24-inch x 36-inch sheets.
