How do I get the best from Hahnemuhle Fine Art paper?

Postby davidgaynor » Wed Feb 13, 2008 12:43 pm

I have just treated myself to an A3 Fine Art Photo Album from Hahnemuhle, which is loaded up with Natural Art Duo 256gsm. I have an Epson 2400 and have already downloaded the profile from the Hahn. website.
I have PhotoBlack in the printer at present and will have to change to MatteBlack, I think.
Before I start wasting paper, can anybody offer advice on how to get the best results? My aim is to print A4 sized images onto the paper, taking into account the punch holes when I position them.
Also, given the 2400's gloss differential problem, would it be worth getting a can of that matt spray to conceal it ?

Kind regards,
David Gaynor.

The spray won't help on a matte paper, as the problem doesn't exist. However is may help to prevent print damage/wear from excessive handling.

Man is limited by his fears, not by his imagination.
