San Gabriel SemiGloss Fiber brings back the look of traditional fiber prints from the heyday of chemical darkrooms. The paper has a lightly textured surface,which adds depth, distinction, and an elegant reflectivity to the finished print. San Gabriel SemiGloss Fiber has a pleasant warm tone that adds natural richness to portraits and landscapes. Black & White images benefitfrom deep black density and just enough whiteness for great contrast. This whiteness comes from a layer containing a special barium sulfate variant called blanc-fixe, which means permanent white. This material is inert and lends stability to the shade of the paper over time. The coating and base materials are free of acid, lignin, and fluorescent brightening agents. San Gabriel gives you all you need for true exhibition qualityphotographic prints.
