In February 2021, Canson® Infinity, add to the portfolio by introducing four new digital art papers from the iconic ARCHES® paper mill.
The FILA Group, owner of the French Canson® paper mill and brand, acquired the ARCHES® business in March 2020 to further strength its position as a leader in the fine art paper market. The emblematic ARCHES® papers have been the selection of choice for many artistic greats including masterpieces from Van Gogh, Matisse, Chagall and Picasso.
The research & development team has developed a unique, proprietary inkjet receiving layer which has been applied to four ARCHES® digital papers: ARCHES® 88
, ARCHES® BFK Rives® Pure White
, ARCHES® BFK Rives® White
and ARCHES® Aquarelle
. This unique layer delivers exceptional D-Max, a wide colour gamut, extreme precision and excellent tonal range. In addition, the team has developed a portfolio of digital fine art papers that are the whitest in the market today without the use of any harmful optical brightening agents. The combination of the inkjet receiving layer and the natural white ARCHES® base offers real tangible advantages for photographers looking to create vibrant prints on a pure white base that will not degrade over time.
Artists, printmakers and photographers now have the opportunity to create digital art prints on authentic ARCHES® paper for limited or open edition works.
