FibaPrint® Baryta 310gsm (IFA 69), Febuary 2014
…This paper has a great feel, and with the box of sheet paper I tried, virtually no curl. The weight and finish produces prints that have a great look to them…

FibaPrint® Warm Cotton Gloss 335gsm (IFA 45), August/September 2012
…This was a very good test series, one of the best indeed and there is actually little to report for that reason. All measured parameters were excellent and bordering on best-in-class. So if you need an OBA-free, baryta-like paper with a genuine air-dried fibre-base look to it, this is one of the papers that you should look to, it ticks all the boxes.For fine art prints using salon-cream mounts it is a near-perfect match. Monochrome images will also push all the right buttons!…

FibaPrint® Warm Cotton Gloss 335gsm (IFA 45), June 2012
…There are lots of things about this paper that just work for me – the feel, the surface, the colour. Every so often I get to test a paper that make me stop and think about how it will benefit my work. This is one I’ll be doing many more experiments with, particularly monochrome…

Cold Press Rough Textured Natural White 315gsm (IFA 13), Janurary 2010
…The texture is very pronounced for this paper, and as such I’d personally have difficulty in selecting images that would look best on it, as opposed to my normal (warmer matte paper) preference for the smooth cotton natural white (IFA-11) or soft textured natural white (IFA-12)
For black and white images, the depth of blacks was similar to the other Innova papers I use, with the exception of the slight mottling of the surface if you put down too much ink…

Matte Canvas High White 350gsm (IFA 35) and FibaPrint® Canvas Ultra Gloss 380gsm (IFA 36), July 2008
…Two fine canvas media from Innova, with a bright white finish…The Photo Canvas Matte 350gsm is a traditional canvas that needs varnishing to get the best depth of colour and blacks…The Photo Canvas Ultra Gloss 380gsm is altogether different to any other canvas I’ve come across. The glossy ‘photo’ finish is lust like a normal semi-gloss or lustre paper, and the gamut and depth of blacks are more like one of Innova’s FibaPrint papers…

FibaPrint® Warm Cotton Gloss 335gsm (IFA 45), March 2008
…This is a comprehensive range of media covering all possible requirements. As might be expected from the company credited with reintroducing baryta-like papers, the FibaPrint range includes the best-in-class at the time of testing. The FibaPrint range is recommended without any caveats. Before choosing to buy any larger quantities of the Art Range you would be well advised to get hold of a sample pack and print some trials, they are so characteristic that they may not be suitable for your projects.(IFA 36) this material has lifted the standards to new heights inevery department, sometimes by considerable margins!…

FibaPrint® White Gloss (F-type) 300gsm (IFA 09), June 2006
…High colour saturation and dMax along with the feel of a traditional photographic paper. Different than fine art matte papers, to be sure, but a really attractive alternative. And with a 300gsm weight, Fibaprint stands out when it comes to the look and feel side of the evaluation…

Soft Textured Natural White 315gsm (IFA 12), 2006
…An excellent paper for the right types of image. I find that paper choices are a distinctly personal choice, and for me depend on the type of image and how I wish it to be seen. I’m not sure which images I’ll use it for, but this paper has definitely made it into my options list…
