Crane & Company has introduced new, double sided Museo II, available exclusively
in 250 gsm and 365 gsm weights. This completely new, fine art matte paper is 100%
acid free and buffered with pure calcium carbonate to protect the paper from environmental
acidification throughout its lifetime. Museo II contains no fluorescent brightening
agents. It is made from 100% cotton fibers, which are the purest source of cellulose
and it's produced with micro-filtered, naturally occurring, Artesian well
water. Coated on both sides, Museo II is two-side printable. Museo II's
"felt" side has a subtle Velina finish. The "wire" or
smooth side has an even, smooth surface.



Museo II has a brightness of 91 and a Dmax of 1.65, using Epson Ultrachrome inks.
Significantly higher Dmax can be achieved with the use of dye inks. The company
claims that Museo II will produce the purest blacks and whitest whites of any
available inkjet paper without optical brighteners. When properly profiled and
printed on high-quality dye or pigment photo inkjet printers, it is said to produce
exceptionally smooth gradients and the widest gamut of competitive papers. MuseoII
is also a "forgiving" paper that will produce excellent results from
most desktop inkjet printers, using Crane's available profiles.
