PIEZOGRAPHY

Using Epson inkjet printers loaded with monochrome inks developed in the United State, Piezography is the finest black and white digital printing system with a special printer driver. Piezography prints are made with a specialized printing process, utilizing 7 shades of inks, instead of 3 ink shades mixed with colour ink typically used before.
Creating a substantially smoother latitude, and sharply increasing shadow and highlight detail with excellent preservation.

Piezography Glossy – allowing a beautiful finish which is absolutely similar to the baryta-based silver gelatin print.

Piezography Matte – reproducing the sense of depth and the texture of the image.

M. Matsudaira, printing director, is dedicated to offering Piezography printing. That is the one-and-only premium monochrome printing that will maximize the value of your photograph.

HIGHEST RESOLUTION

The Highest Resolution and Smooth Tonal Gradation

Combined with 7 shades of inks and a special printer driver, Piezography prints have the highest resolution, and small dots create smooth gradations and an ultra sharp finish.

GLOSS OPTIMIZER

Gloss Finish Similar to Baryta-based Gelatin Silver Prints

Piezography glossy prints giving the best finish resemble baryta-based gelatin silver prints, allowing the white margins of the paper glossy without any appearance of bronzing.

K7 INKS

Piezography Inks with Longevity

Piezography is a brand of black and white carbon ink and does not use colour ink to print black & white photography, allowing superior light resistance.

INKS & PAPERS

n addition to Piezography k7 neutral inks, we also provide Piezography Pro which has two hues – warm and cool – to be blended together in endless tone combinations. Piezography Pro (the darkest dMax) is available from 2017 onwards at Atelier Matsudaira.

The Piezography brand of monochromatic inks are considered to be environmentally friendly and safe. No more harmful chemicals in a darkroom. To capture the essence of the subject and to enhance its existence value, we only select top-quality papers – beautiful tone and longevity – from all over the world.

Achieving a high dMax, utilizing acid-free and lignin-free paper (paper containing lignin becomes brittle and deteriorates), taking these two points as our standard, we strive to always provide gallery quality papers for our customers.
