Epson introduces new paper product for photographic printing

Epson recently introduced its newest addition to the portfolio of Legacy Papers – Legacy Baryta II.  Inspired by the legendary f/64 Group of photographers, Baryta II is an OBA-free 100% cotton fiber paper with a true baryta coating.

Designed for use by professional photographers, fine artists, galleries, museums, and collectors, this true Baryta paper offers an industry leading microporous coating for rich blacks and a wide color gamut and is available in cut sheets up to 17″x22″ and roll widths up to 60-inches.

Legacy Baryta II joins Epson Legacy family of papers for professional photographers.

“We worked with industry leading photographers to improve upon our last baryta paper to produce this new, industry leading formulation,” said Jeffrey Smith, senior product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “Designed for artists who intend to sell their prints, the new Baryta II paper offers rich, deep blacks and a wide color gamut with a true baryta coating reminiscent of revered silver halide darkroom papers.”

“With Legacy Baryta II, black-and-white prints are inky black and color is rich and effortless – just plain beautiful photographic prints that feel substantial and reminiscent of the very best darkroom papers,” said Jim Richardson, National Geographic photographer, Jim Richardson Photography.
