Palo Duro Etching 315 Press Release

Red River Paper's Palo Duro Etching 315 Sets the Bar High for Fine Art Inkjet Media

100% Cotton Rag and OBA-Free, New Paper Renders Beautiful Warm Tone Whites / Deep Blacks with a Hint of Texture to Create Look and Feel of Traditional Fine Art Prints from the Darkroom

Dallas, TX - May 17, 2017 - Red River Paper is introducing a new fine art paper that will impress the most discerning photographic purists, fine art collectors, and museum curators. Palo Duro Etching 315 is a natural white paper made from 100% cotton rag that presents the classic look of a fine art photographic print produced in the darkroom. It is an ideal paper for nature / landscape photographs, rich black-and-white images, artwork reproductions, and gorgeous skin tone reproductions. Completely free of acids, lignins, and OBAs, Palo Duro Etching 315 will receive high marks for its museum quality and archival stability.

“Our new Palo Duro Etching 315 paper is one of the finest photo papers we have ever produced,” explains Drew Hendrix, owner of Red River Paper. “From its subtle-textured surface and quality ‘feel,’ to rendering warm natural tones and deep rich blacks, Palo Duro Etching 315 will satisfy even the most critical eye.”

Palo Duro Etching 315 meets all the critical demands of art galleries, museums, and collectors. Made from 100% cotton fiber, the paper is free of any additives including chemicals or optical brighteners (OBA) to create the look and feel of darkroom-quality prints that won’t fade or discolor over time.

The secret to its ability to capture luxurious deep blacks is a special barrier coat placed between the paper and inkjet receiving layer. Ink remains “trapped” in the inkjet coating and cannot sink into the paper base. The results are deep, rich blacks typically not found in matte surface papers.
