There are very few companies worldwide that can be proud of such a long company history like Hahnemühle’s. Founded back in 1584 as a paper mill in South Lower Saxony’s Solling uplands, Hahnemühle developed – strictly according to the spirit of its founding fathers – into a customer-oriented and innovative manufacturing facility.
A set of quality criteria is employed to assess the relatively recent category of Fine Art Printings on paper from their Digital FineArt collection. The importance of the respective criteria depends on application. In the case of artistic reproductions, the most important criteria are surface structure, colour gamut (surface, the intensity of colours), density and feel. In the photographic section, importance is placed on the Dmax value (detail resolution in dark areas), high degree of white and opacity.
In general, the most important features are ink limit, colour gamut, density and resistance to ageing. All types of paper produced by Hahnemühle in the Digital FineArt collection meet the highest quality standards, and enjoy world-wide renown.
