Optical, archival prints printed in the darkroom on silver gelatin fiber-base paper.

These exquisite prints are for that discerning customer, museum presentation, gallery shows, special gifts, or heirloom prints and will last for generations. Ilford Multigrade Fiber base paper provides the tactile elegance, depth, and luminosity that are unsurpassed in any traditional silver gelatin paper. We go the extra mile with much evaluation, testing, burning, dodging and split printing to arrive at the optimal archival print with a lifespan of 200 years. Museum quality prints require the attention that exhibition printing provides.
