Product Highlights
  • Superior Sharpness
  • Excellent Tonal Separation

Kentmere 8x10" Fineprint VC B&W FB Paper is a double-weight, fiber-base variable contrast, neutral tone paper using Kentmere's unique bromo-iodide technology. This Kentmere paper produces smooth tonal gradations and excellent detail

Cool rich blacks, crisp bright whites and exceptional mid-tone detail characterize Fineprint VC Glossy and Finegrain.
Kentmere's unique bromo-iodide technology, with its special construction, offers superior sharpness with separation in even the finest detail
Compatible with Ilford MG filters grades 00-5
Surfaces respond superbly to many toning techniques allowing further manipulation of tone and contrast
Available in Glossy and Finegrain (textured semi-matte) surfaces
Process Type Black and white chemistry
Base Type Fiber based
Tone Cool rich blacks, crisp bright whites and exceptional mid-tone detail
Weight Double weight, The paper is 240 g/m2 coated on the front side with 36g/m2 of baryta giving a base weight of approximately 276 g/m2, and a thickness of approximately 260 µm
Contrast Variable, Contrast as a range approximately equivalent to grades 00 to 5 is achievable from the Fineprint range by means of contrast filters used in the enlarger. Proprietary filter sets such as Ilford Multigrade or Kodak Polymax are suitable.
Surface Finish Glossy, The traditional unglazed glossy surface is particularly suited to portrait, landscape and exhibition work. A very high gloss can be achieved by standard glazing techniques.
Safelight Compatibility Fineprint range papers have an orthochromatic emulsion, that requires a dark orange/brown or red safelight to be used. Box/lantern type safelights using glass filters should only be used with a 15 W bulb or less and should be positioned at least 1 meter from the paper. Filters which are suitable for use with VC Select are: Kodak OC or 1A, and Ilford 902

        Comments about Kentmere Fineprint VC B&W FB Paper (8x10", Glossy, 25 Sheets):

        This brand of paper was referred to me by a teacher and I love it!! I've used a few other brands but being a student I've found that this is the best buy for the money in my opinion. It produces great tones and it super easy to work with. I shoot with Kentmere films so its nice to work with the paper as well

          Comments about Kentmere Fineprint VC B&W FB Paper (8x10", Glossy, 25 Sheets):

          After printing for years on Ilford and Oriental, I'm switching over to Kentmere. The price is right, and the prints are beautiful. It is not the paper for everyone. Fineprint VC FB has the whitest base of any paper I've used. It is also the coldest toned. Another consideration: Fineprint has a developing agent incorporated into the emulsion, which makes for faster development than competing papers, but may also lead to a shorter shelf-life.

            Good contrast, and detail. Unlike other FB sheets, this is easy to flatten.
