Papers similar to Photo Rag Pearl?
« on: October 29, 2012, 06:28:56 AM »

Hello, I would like to make some prints and used Hahnemühle Photo Rag Pearl last time, which I like. Unfortunately no-one has this paper in this country where I am now so are there perhaps some similar papers which I could ask for? Without having access to any paper samples I can see for myself, this is a daunting task!

An advice would be easier if you indicate what paper brands you can get in that country or reveal the name of the country.

I'm in Ukraine. All major brands are carried here (including Hahnemühle) but the stocks can be very limited, so I need to know which papers to enquire about.

I'd try Canson Platine Fibre Rag

More or less close to paper white and texture: Museo Silver Rag. Sihl 4804, Harman by HM Gloss Art Fibre Warmtone, Canson Platine, Innova IFA19, Tecco Baryt Ivory.  Weights differ between alternatives.

European distributors will be best represented then.  German brands in the first place: Tecco, Tetenal, Hahnemühle, Bonjet. Swiss: Ilford France: Canson.  Pictorico has an online shop in Germany but eastwards Poland is the last stop for delivery.
