It's great to be back and we hope everyone had a safe, relaxing and not too restricted holiday period. It's probably safe to say you're as keen as we are to put the-year-that-should-not-be-named behind us, and we look forward to better times ahead!

First, a quick reminder that we are now down to our last twenty or so of the very heavily discounted X-Rite i1 Display Pro Plus calibrators - the sale is only while stocks last so grab the best available calibrator at the best ever price, now!

This month we've got new lower pricing and an excellent offer on the industry standard RotaTrim precision cutters, and some great new products on the website. Notable is an archival print signing pen set - something we know many folks have been looking for. We've also got some new baryta inkjet papers from Ilford and Canson. Details below.

Settle in with a cup of tea and read a brand new article from Jeremy about the new Apple M1 chip, and our February featured artist is iconic sixties surfing photographer Bob Weeks.

As ever, thanks for reading!

Now Stocking: Ilford Gold Fibre Rag 270gsm

New to the Image Science semi-gloss paper range is Ilford Gold Fibre Rag, a baryta-like paper designed to emulate the gorgeous darkroom papers of old.

Thanks to bright whites, this is an excellent choice for high-impact black and white landscape and portrait images. Gold Fibre Rag delivers dramatic contrast and an impressively diverse range of tonality. We'd highly recommend all our photographer clients putting this at the top of your "papers to try" list!

Ilford Galerie Gold Fibre Rag 270gsm

Gold Fibre Rag has the look and feel of traditional baryta paper, with a gorgeously soft texture, bright white tone and semi-gloss finish.


Canson Baryta Photographique II

After a shortage of a chemical required to formulate the true barium sulfate layer of Canson Baryta Photographique forced an absence from the market, it's predecessor is now available with newly improved surface and handling properties. The new barium sulfate formulation has better scratch resistance and is less likely to curl, allowing for more robust handling of your fine art prints.

Canson Infinity Baryta Photographique II 310gsm

An exhibition-quality baryta paper with a semi-gloss finish and a low OBA content.


New! Hahnemühle Pen Set Duo

At last, the optimal way to sign your limited edition prints and original artworks all handily packaged up in one sleek sliding case! The new Hahnemühle Pen Set Duo conveniently holds two ideal (and archival!) options for signing both gloss and matte media types: one premium pigment ink fine liner pen and one fine-art quality graphite pencil designed for smudge and hassle-free signing.

Never waste a print again because of messy ink bleed and smudging!

Knowledge Base : Apple M1 Not Quite Ready

Image Science director Jeremy Daalder gives us his initial thoughts on the much touted and very exciting Apple M1 Chip - and why it's not yet quite ready for professional, colour-accurate imaging work.

The Apple M1 Is Not Quite Ready For Colour Work

(Updated: most issues now solved!) - We suggest waiting a few months for the dust to settle on these new Apples.
