Epson America Inc. announced two new proofing papers designed with design shops and ad agencies in mind at the Graph Expo this past week.
The newest additions to Epson’s line of proofing media, the Standard Proofing Paper- Production and the CrystalClear Film -Adhesive, when used in conjunction with the Epson Stylus Pro printers, “give customers incredible versatility,” said Jeff Smith, product manager, Epson America, Inc.
The CrystalClear Film – Adhesive, with Epson UltraChrome HDR White ink technology, is an optically clear polyester film with a repositionable adhesive backing. The CrystalClear Film – Adhesive will deliver optimal performance when used with the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 for prototypes and mock-ups applied to a bottle or box. The product will be sold in 100 foot roll lengths in widths of 17 and 24-inches, with 44-inch rolls available in the future.
The Standard Proofing Paper – Production is a GRACoL SWOP Grade 1 compliant production proofing paper targeting the top-tier color-critical market with the widest color gamut available for accurate color reproductions while remaining a cost effective solution. The white point provides an L* value of over 96 with a brightness point of 97 and a whiteness point of 108, while the a* and b* values are at 1 and -3. The product will be sold in 100 foot roll lengths in widths of 17, 24 and 44-inches.
