Dedicated Craftsmanship

Legacy Papers marry the artistry of revered European papermaking with the latest advancements in inkjet coating technology.

Working with the finest paper mills in Germany and France we first specify the type of base required for each of the Legacy papers. Once the base is produced, advanced microporus coatings are applied using modern techniques for the highest quality and consistency.

Only after meeting hundreds of design specifications, while ensuring for a high rate of production consistency for the richest blacks, outstanding color fidelity and smooth tonal transitions, will a paper carry the Epson Legacy name.

Display Permanence

The combination of Epson Legacy Paper and Epson UltraChrome® HD and HDX pigment ink technology can provide up to twice the Display Permanence Ratings of previous generation inks, according to tests conducted by the Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc.

Legacy Platine

A unique paper, Legacy Platine combines the look and feel of a traditional silver halide paper, but with a true fine art cotton base. With outstanding black density and color gamut, this paper is ideal for any color or black and white printmaking. Available in roll or cut sheet.

"The rich blacks combined with the incredible color fidelity enhance the film noir aesthetic in my "Sleeping Cars" photographs at the Fahey‑Klein Gallery. Additionally, Legacy Platine’s surface allows viewers to experience every detail in the prints."

– Gerd Ludwig

Legacy Baryta II

Inspired by the original members of the F64 Group, this paper is reminiscent of Baryta based silver halide darkroom papers. This is a true Baryta paper that is also OBA-free with an industry leading microporous coating for outstanding Dmax and color gamut. Available in roll or cut sheet.

"With Legacy Baryta II, B&W prints are inky black. Color is rich and effortless. Just plain beautiful photographic prints that feel substantial and reminiscent of the very best darkroom papers."

– Jim Richardson

Legacy Fibre

An old‑world artisan paper, combined with advanced technology. Legacy Fibre has a smooth matte finish with a true white base, making it a unique OBA‑free fine art paper with exceptional black density and color gamut. Available in roll or cut sheet.

"The clean OBA‑free whites of Legacy Fibre and the paper's wide gamut produced the highest quality for my Women's List exhibit at Hearst Tower's Alexey Brodovitch Gallery."

– Timothy Greenfield‑Sanders

Legacy Etching

Legacy Etching is a tribute to the classic hand‑made etching papers beloved by artists for hundreds of years. With a subtle textured surface, this paper delivers outstanding print quality without overpowering the print itself. Available in roll or cut sheet.

"When creating fine art images, visual consistency is a critical consideration. So when it came time to print the 210 images for my retrospective exhibition I chose Legacy Etching. The pureness of the white without OBAs, the subtle texture and the way the paper receives the ink helped to showcase my signature style."

– Vincent Versace

Legacy Textured

With the look of old-world handcrafted watercolor papers, Legacy Textured is an OBA-free heavily textured fine art paper with exceptional black density and color gamut. Available in roll or cut sheet.

"My exhibition at the SE Center for Photography, “HORSEscapes was printed on Legacy Textured. The appearance, texture and feel of the prints were beyond compare. With the intensity of the colors and the fine rendition of the smallest details, you could almost hear the sounds of the horses in the prints."

– Monica Stevenson
