Harman by Hahnemuhle’s Gloss Baryta is one of our most recently stocked inkjet papers at Pro Photo Supply and is an excellent versatile paper at a mid-range price point. For many photographers there is a consistent determination to replicate the feel and quality of a traditional fine art print. Baryta papers often take precedence over many inkjet papers for a variety of photographers seeking this throwback to analog printing. Baryta is a barium-sulphate clay type material applied to the base of the paper that results in a superior print quality and in most cases a super smooth emulsion. Harman’s Gloss Baryta has a milky white base, wide color gamut with a deep black making it a suitable choice for both black and white prints and color. It is also compatible with a wide variety of printer manufacturers. For those looking for a warmer and more natural white base Harman also makes Gloss Baryta in a warm tone version which looks and feels strikingly similar to Ilford’s Gloss Warm Tone Fiber darkroom paper. Although we’re currently only stocking the Gloss Baryta in a neutral tone, we do carry the sample pack of Harman’s full paper line for anyone interested in experimenting with some new inkjet media.
