In a move to satisfy growing demand for high-end photographic prints, CMA Imaging has introduced its Perfect Photo portfolio of superior quality papers.
The new product family covers all popular sizes, and meets the demands of the professional, semi-professional and enthusiast market where users strive for consistent colour and black and white fidelity.
The CMA Perfect Photo portfolio has been developed with total product and coating stability to match requirements for consistency and colour accuracy. Ideal for desktop and wide-format ink-jet printers, the papers have been developed to incorporate CMA Imaging’s on-going policy of providing the most exacting quality standards for today’s photographic, proofing and printing requirements, guaranteeing accurate output across all devices.
Pierre–Alain Brugger, heads up the consultancy and R&D side for CMA Imaging. “I was formerly with Ilford in Switzerland, and I’ve designed various special layers and coatings for photographic, proofing and printing papers during my 30 years of experience,” he explains. “My expertise has meant that CMA Imaging is positioned ideally to develop the next generation of photo papers.”
The products have been developed for use on all aqueous-based ink-jet printers using dye and pigmented inks. The bright white surface gives universal compatibility, guaranteeing consistent results regardless of output device.
CMA Perfect Photo papers complement CMA Color Cloud remote profiling software which will bring an added dimension to users requiring the best performance from their printer or media. The new portfolio joins CMA Perfect Trans which emulates Duratrans yet is designed for ink-jet production and carries full environmental and recyclable properties.
“The demand for photographic prints continues to grow across all sizes of printers, so our legacy in this sector has put CMA Imaging in the ideal position of bringing a product to market that satisfies the needs of home and studio users, plus professional photolabs,” states Mark Sanderson, Managing Director of CMA Imaging.
“Our new CMA Perfect Photo range also continues our philosophy of providing cost-effective high value papers that are in-line with today’s needs for consistency and quality — essential for everyone that prints photographs and expects superior results.”
CMA Imaging’s FSC and PEFC certified papers combine responsibility for promoting the reduction in chemical and consumable waste by lowering costs and improving throughput. The company supports reforest action by planting a tree for every roll sold, and it partners with those who are able to maintain its key criteria for adding value while enhancing environmental principles throughout all sectors of the printing and photographic industries.
