What is the best fine art watercolor paper for giclée fine art giclée prints?
An excellent choice is fine art paper from the Hahnemuhle Collection of Digital Fine Art paper. This fine art paper is for digital art prints, ideal for limited editions of giclée prints and digital fine art in general. If you need special paper to reproduce historical photographs with that special look, then again, look at the Hahnemuhle Collection of Digital Fine Art paper
Hahnemuhle digital fine art paper works equally well with pigmented (archival) inks as well as dye based inks. So if you need color intensity and quality, you have come to the right place. These papers work especially well with the Hewlett-Packard DesignJet printers, both the original 2000cp, 2500cp, 2800cp, the 54" models 3000cp, 3500cp, and 3800cp and the newer HP DesignJet 5000 and 5000ps.
Now of course the model of choice would be the HP DesignJet 5000 or 5000ps. These are all thermal printhead technology.
The same HP thermal printheads are used by all current models of ColorSpan printers.

If you are interested in the new "4-color" black-and-white inks such as Ilford Archiva MonoKrome inks, then Hahnemuhle Albrecht Durer and Hahnemuhle German Etching are two good papers to work with. FLAAR will be using these fine art papers, so check back about the time of the Seybold San Francisco trade show or for Photokina trade show.
Hahnemuehle paper was prominently displayed at the DRUPA printer trade show in Germany.
What is always enjoyable to do with your printer is to try out different kinds of fine art paper. Thus at a recent PMA trade show we finally met the people behind the nice family-owned Hawk Mountain Art Papers. We have not yet had the opportunity to use their media because we are in the middle of setting up a newer larger evaluation studio at a state university.
