Innova Paper

Innova, the Digital Fine Art Paper Manufacturer with Brilliant Ranges!

What is Innova Paper?

Innova is one of the younger fine art paper companies in the market, however, they are one of few who are dedicated solely to inkjet fine art and photo papers. Compared to some other fine art paper companies, Innova is one of the youngest in the market. Only established in 2003, they do not have the weight of typical traditions and history, allowing for them to pioneer new advancing papers. Innova is a true specialist in inkjet fine art and photo papers, embracing new technologies and innovations to deliver quality products. All of their products are pH neutral, acid and lignin free, archival high-quality and made using high-quality raw materials.

Innova Logo

DPSB has a comprehensive range of Innova’s fantastic products, however, the following article will highlight some notable additions to the range.

Innova Editions Range

The Innova Art Editions are the papers that can offer both the look, feel and archival quality of classic fine art and photographic media, together with the image intensity and durability that is of the best quality.

This paper is reminiscent of traditional darkroom papers through the innovative crystal layer technology, leaving a stunning gloss finish and similar aesthetics to the techniques used in darkrooms.

Innova Fabriano Paper

Innova has teamed up with the historic paper manufacturer, Fabriano, to bring two inkjet papers to the Editions range. The Fabriano paper started around 13th century Italy, with the legend being that the techniques had been learnt from a captured Arab prisoner who had tried to storm the port of Ancona. This subsequently made Fabriano one of the oldest paper producers in the whole of Europe, passing through the hands of many significant historical figures such as Michaelangelo and Beethoven. But it is the generational knowledge and experience developed over time, which has led to the high-quality papers Fabriano creates today.

NEW Innova Fabriano Printmaking Rag
