Marly, Switzerland, 29 September, 2008 – ILFORD announces today the expansion of its highly successful GALERIE media to include a new line: GALERIE Graphic.

Available in rolls from 17″ to 44″, the GALERIE Graphic product line includes:

  • Self adhesive vinyl for indoor display applications such as wall graphics and posters
  • Backlit transparency material for light boxes which offers a wide and vibrant colour gamut
  • Pop-up display media to create eye catching, free standing graphics
  • Heavyweight matt paper for graphical texts and artworks
  • Ultra white pearl and gloss finishes for striking graphic images

The new range was developed to enable professional photographers to expand their portfolio and diversify their services. The media is compatible with photographers’ existing inkjet printers and the product is available in single rolls, so there is no unnecessary outlay in buying new stock. In addition, as with all GALERIE products, the quality is reinforced with ICC profiles available free of charge from
