APPLICATION GUIDELINES
Printer & Ink Compatibility:
These papers are compatible on Epson and Roland water-based piezo printers and Hewlett- Packard DesignJet® 5000 series printers. It is recommended to pretest these papers on other printer systems for compatibility. The universal coating can be printed with both dye and pigmented inks. Pigmented inks offer a more stable image from light fade.

Printing:
These papers will accept ink coverage up to 400% on the printer systems listed above. Due to the heavy weight of the paper, the feed rate through the printers may not be consistent, causing prints to differ slightly in size from print to print or from the expected size after RIPing. When first out of the box, Verona 335 may exhibit roll curl. Unwind the paper and allow to equalibrate before printing. It is recommended to turn off the automatic printer cutter option. To optimize print quality, printers should be set for highest print quality. Use photobase or watercolor paper settings. ICC color profiles can be obtained for selected RIP, ink and printer combinations.

Base Consistency:
The imaging layers of the paper will be consistent yielding repeatable image performance.

Mounting:
Museum mounting techniques should be followed, including Japanese hinges and mylar corners.

Handling:
These fine art papers are not scuff-proof and should be treated as fine art and interleaved with acid-free paper or glassine slip sheets.

Framing:
Imaged sheets may be framed under glass or other physical surface protection methods.

Surface Protection:
It is recommended to follow industry standards when mounting fine art media. Fine art media is typically mounted behind glass for optimal image permanence. Overlaminating with Fluorex® Transfer Protection (DMFTP) Film with a two-pass process can be performed; however, Fluorex® Transfer Protection Film adds gloss to the matte papers. It is recommended to always pretest laminates prior to performing actual application.

Water Resistance:
A high degree of water resistance is present only when pigmented inks are used.

Image Permanence:
Internal applications testing by InteliCoat is in progress. Once results are obtained, they will be published in this applications guide. It is best to keep Verona papers away from all non acid-free substrates for optimal archival performance.

Material Storage:
Verona 225W/250W/335W fine art media offer best results when used one year after manufacturing date. The unused media should be stored in its original packaging in the poly bag and stored at 72°F (+/-5°).
