For fine art photographers looking for a matte medium that can deliver a wide color gamut and high brightness, Epson has developed Hot Press Bright Paper. Made from 100% cotton rag and using a hot press production technique, this paper features a smooth matte finish. The heavy weight of 330 gsm, thickness of 17 mil, and opacity of 98% further give this paper the look and feel of a true fine art paper. Also, through the use of optical brightening agents, this media will help deliver bright whites, deep blacks, and a wide color gamut. Designed for longevity, Hot Press Bright is free of acid, lignin, and chlorine and is pH buffered.
