    New Art Paper! Freestyle's Arista Silver Artist Series Paper

    Received my Spring 2012 Freestyle catalog in the mail today and also saw in the April email newsletter mention of a new art paper, Arista Silver Artist Series Paper! A Matte surface to boot! Just placed and order for a pack of 8x10 look forward to trying it out!

    Below per Freestyle and supporting link re Arista Silver Artist Series paper:

    Freestyle's unique positioning in the world market of photographic products has enabled us to create a totally new and unique B&W variable contrast paper. We've matched a high silver content B&W emulsion with a 100% cotton, fine-art paper; BFK Rives 280 gsm, manufactured in France. BFK Rives is considered one of the finest and most respected of all fine art papers in the world. Initially available in very limited quantities in 8x10 and 11x14 sizes with a choice of either a whitebase matte or grey-base matte surface texture. This product is different from anything you've ever seen! If sales are successful we will expand the line to include other sizes and base colors. With your support we can create a unique product that will endure for years to come. Best used under red or dim OC safelight conditions!

    Just saw that in my new catalog too. I'm wondering if it is Ilford Art 300 with their brand. If so, it's a little better price. If not, it may be a great addition to good papers. Either way sounds like a winner.

    Paper could be made in France (like Arches Platine and others Arches papers) but not the coating.
    Guilleminot the last photographic paper factory is dead for about 20 years now and coating machine werre disassembled so Guy Gerard (Bergger label) could not get them.

    Sounds logical. In any case, I'll be trying it. I like the Art 300, but the Arista price is a little better, so if I can get the same quality it's a good deal.

    Keep this in mind, Ilford does not rebrand any of its products. Wouldn't it be grand if they did. It would be far out if it were Bergger.

    Ilford have stated that they won't re-brand their own products, but they are available for contract manufacture.

    So there are products out there that are designed by others, but manufactured by Ilford for them.

    Interesting....I wonder if the new paper is in the same general "category" as Ilford Fine Art MG VC....that is, a photo-emulsion on a high quality thick paper.

    Is the new Arista paper furnished in a matt or glossy finish?
