Description

Hahnemühle Hemp uses one of the oldest and most diverse natural fibres in the world and is made of 60% hemp fibre. The paper’s base impresses with its white natural tone, and thanks to the bright white colour of the hemp fibres, no optical brighteners are required.

The lightly textured surface gives the paper a pleasant, silky feel. Combined with the matt premium inkjet coating, this is a truly versatile fine art inkjet paper. Colours and details are brilliantly reproduced, the depth of the black truly stands out and contrasts are reproduced with stunning effect. The acid and lignin-free fine art inkjet paper meets the most exacting requirements for age resistance. Hemp was an essential part of paper production for centuries, and due to its extremely robust fibres, it has often been used for long-lasting historical documents, such as the Gutenberg Bible and the US Declaration of Independence.

Advantages of Hemp:

– It’s fast-growing and reaches up to 4m within 3 months.
– It’s an undemanding plant and grows almost everywhere without needing a special climate or soil.
– It’s doesn’t leach out the soil but improves the soil quality.
– As a deep-root plant, it loosens the soil.
– It requires considerably less water.
– It doesn’t need any pesticides, herbicides or fungicides.
– Every part of the plant can be used – the seeds, the leaves and the stems.
– Hemp has a high carbon dioxide uptake and captures carbon emissions, the so-called carbon sequestration.
– Industrial hemp is THC reduced with no intoxicating effect.

Specifications

Please note: Specifications are provided as a guide only.

We try very hard to keep these up to date and correct, but if a particular specification is really critical to you, then please double check the specification directly with the manufacturer. Some features may of course have caveats not fully described here.

To get more information about a particular specification, use the arrow to get a 'Specxplanation'.

  • Construction
    Fibre Based

    Papers are constructed in two main ways:

    Resin Coated papers are the modern approach. These use less fibre and replace the fibre with resin (a nice name for plastic). This means these papers are cheap, strong and robust, but tend to be less attractive to the touch and accept less ink. They tend to have a clinical appearance and it's hard to write on the back of them. They tend to be popular in the consumer and wedding/portrait markets.

    Fibre Based papers are traditional papers made without plastic, using only plant fibres. These tend to accept more ink and have a more attractive appearance, and these are the papers most of our customers favour.

  • Substrate
    60% Hemp, 40% Cotton

    What is the paper base made from?

    Possibilities include:

    • Wood Pulp - the most common and cheapest
    • Alpha Cellulose - the best part of wood pulp, separated. Generally tested as archival as cotton etc
    • Cotton - the most common fine art paper fibre
    • Bamboo - an ecologically friendly alternative to cotton
    • Mulberry & more - many other plant fibres can be used to make archival paper
  • Paper Weight
    290 gsm

    In 'gsm' - grams per square metre.

    Not, technically, the same as paper thickness, but obviously correlated. The heft of the paper. European art papers are traditionally generally around the 300gsm mark. Asian papers historically tended to be lighter, 100 to 200 gsm.

    Papers with a higher GSM tend to have more opacity, i.e. you see less through them.

  • Surface Texture
    Matte, Smooth

    What is the surface texture of the paper?

    We divide this into six groups. We go by the appearance of the actual paper and not what the manufacturer might label the box with!

    • Matte - smooth and texture
    • Gloss - semi, gloss, and high gloss
    • Double Sided - special case papers that are printable to full quality on both sides.
  • White Tone
    Bright White

    What is the white tone of the paper?

    • Cool White - a paper with a distinctly cool (blue) tone
    • Bright White - A paper that is brighter than non brightened papers, but not overly cool
    • White - a natural clean white tone for an art paper - most Photo Rag papers fall here
    • Warm - a distinctly warmer, creamier paper
    • Pearlescent - a distinct warm grey tone (generally found only with metallic papers)
  • Coating
    Microporous

    These days almost all papers are microporous coated - meaning they'll accept inks from both dye based and pigment printers well.

    In years past, some papers had a swellable coating - designed to give a greater life to prints with dye based inks but this approach has fallen out of favour.

  • Compatible Inks
    Pigment Inks (use matte black)
    Pigment Inks (use photo black)

    What ink type (dye and/or pigments) can you use with the paper?

    Also, if using pigment inks and you have a choice, should you use the Matte Black or Photo Black ink?

  • Paper Type In Driver
  • Optical Brighteners?

    Does the paper contain chemicals in it to brighten its appearance?
