ILFORD papers had a tidy little display at CP Plus 2015, which was more like a small gallery exhibiting wonderful prints by equally wonderful photographers. The company also provided a printer, allowing you to print your own images on its paper. There are five new types of paper that made their premiere at CP Plus, all Galerie Prestige Inkjet paper. Four of these are 100% cotton papers without optical brighteners and one, the Fine Art Smooth, uses “a little” brightener and cellulose content. The Fine Art Smooth has a basic weight of 200 gsm while the other four offer 310 gsm.
