Mid 2020: Please note Hahnemühle have a new importer. Please read our blog post about the state of Hahnemühle in Australia.
Hahnemühle and their quirky Rooster have been making art papers for over 400 years.
In the modern era, they have successfully transitioned into the digital domain more successfully than any other brand and they are the market leaders in digital fine art all over the world.
Our own introduction to digital fine art began with a Hahnemühle sample pack way back around 2000, and we've never looked back. Opening that first pack of paper was a revelation - at last photography could be achieved on the sorts of gorgeous papers all other visual artists had been enjoying for centuries.
The Hahnemühle range is both broad and superb in quality.
Availability and pricing in Australia is legendary and for the last 15 years Image Science has been an integral part of that. We have been proud to sell and support Hahnemühle for almost 15 years, and as a Hahnemühle certified printer we can safely say their materials have been a key component of our success across the board.
Our unique structure of offering both Hahnemühle products and fine art services based on those products gives us absolutely unmatched practical experience to draw on - and we're very happy to offer guidance in paper choice and tips on how to get the best from your Hahnemühle paper.
There are quite a few favourites in the Hahnemühle range - all of them papers that we use for our own in-house fine art printing services. We have tested them extensively and use them daily!
The Hahnemühle digital fine art materials include the world's legendary Hahnemühle Photo Rag - easily the most popular fine art digital paper in the world and we print literally kilometres of this paper every year ourselves. Capable of both delicate expression and punchy results, this is a classic everyone should try.
Hahnemühle Bamboo is a similar modern alternative - with a luscious warm tone, it is made from 90% bamboo, a highly renewable resource - this is our most ecologically friendly paper option and is just beautiful! A real favourite for black and white portraits and art reproductions needing a warmer base tone.
Hahnemühle German Etching - with a delicate, regular, classic etching texture, this one is very popular with both our photographic and art reproduction clients.
Hahnemühle Torchon is more textured paper with an organic, watery like texture and a bright white colour. Particularly popular with larger art reproduction prints.
