ILFORD GALERIE GOLD FIBRE SILK
Founded in 1879, ILFORD is a leading player in the development and manufacture of photo quality media for both inkjet printing and photographic processes. The ability to adapt and change to market trends has been something that ILFORD has done since its inception, and its world class manufacturing facility in Switzerland has been the driving force and inspiration behind many of the best quality inkjet products available in the market today. The company's leading research and development programs are managed by a team of over 50 scientists, engineers, and laboratory assistants who bring together expertise, insider knowledge and a passion for producing photo quality media.
Ilford now operates as a fully owned subsidiary within the OJI communications paper division. This enables the Ilford capabilities and expertise to function all the way from raw paper through to the highly sophisticated product design and manufacturing processes incorporated in the end product. Made in Switzerland, the company has maintained its position as a leading manufacturer of photo quality media by remaining at the forefront of research and technology.
In line with the market transition from the analog darkroom to the digital arena, ILFORD set itself as the benchmark of producing the equivalent of a classic air-dried, gloss, black and white fiber based silver image print using current inkjet digital technology. ILFORD has created GALERIE GOLD Fibre Silk, a 310gsm inkjet media featuring a traditional barium sulphate (baryta) base. The baryta enhances the media surface which gives the creamy whites and velvety blacks that form part of the unique look and feel of a true fibre print; the standard with art photographers worldwide. The media also produces real high definition images with an extended tonal range, making it a must for exhibition quality images ranging from vivid color to dramatic black and whites.
GALERIE GOLD Fibre Silk is completed by a backing layer which insures that the final printed image has minimal curl. Galerie Gold has been specifically designed with no unnecessary additions in the media to guarantee the image lasts just like a traditional photo print. When used with the pigment ink printers such as Epson and Canon desktop or wide format models, the results are unbelievable.
Ilford has created specific recommendations on using filter in Photoshop to create digital toning - ranging from standard black and white, warm tone, cool tone and sepia to gold, selenium and blue. The only limit is the photographer's imagination. You can view these tips at:
