We inform the addition to our permanent stock of papers the awarded and prestigious, Moab Entrada by American firm Legion.
It has a great reputation in USA and in 2012 it was the paper chosen by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences of Hollywood, for showing large format portraits of photographer Douglas Kirkland, of the best actors award nominees.
Douglas Kirkland exhibition on Moab Entrada paper.
The physical aspect of it is alike the popular PhotoRag by Hahnemühle. There are paper weights of 190gsm and 300gsm on dual coating, allowing double-side printing, and 290gsm on single coating. There are as well two paper base tones, Bright White and Natural, and in our will to offer papers free of optical brighteners (OBAs), our choice has been for the Natural.
The tests performed and compared to the German manufactured PhotoRag, have basically concluded that:
- Better and more natural gradients
- Deeper DMax
- Unsurpassed abrasion resistance than any other cotton paper on the market
- Lower cost
As you know, paper weight does not refer to the thickness but the weight of it. We would like to do notice that the body of Moab Entrada 290gsm feels thicker and is stiffer than Hahnemühle PhotoRag 308gsm.
We encourage all who have printed on Photo Rag before, to give a chance to Moab Entrada, as we are sure it will succesfully surprise you as much as we were.
GraficArtPrints, pioners on giclee printing in Spain since the recent past century, again will be one of the first European workshops to incorporate this excellent American paper that undoubtedly will leave its footstep.
Top quality, unsurpassed abrasion resistance and lower price.
