Epson Signature Worthy Papers

For Photography, Art Illustration & Fine Art Prints

Are you aware there are several options for paper that you can choose from for your print... all of which have their unique strengths? When we refer to Cold Press and Hot Press, we are alluding to the texture of the paper. Cold Press papers are generally bumpy in texture, akin to that of watercolour paper, whereas Hot Press papers are smooth in texture. These terms derive from past treatment of paper wherein a Hot Press paper would undergo an ironing process, conversely, the Cold Press paper would not. The expressions, Natural and Bright, are regarding the optical brightening agents in paper, which directly affect the white point, in turn the look of your image. Natural has a subtle warm tint (off-white), whereas Bright entails a vivid white.
