Optica One is a 300gsm bright white, matte fine art inkjet paper with a luxuriously smooth surface ideal for high-resolution photographic imagery. It is able to produce extremely crisp and accurate detail as a result of its leadership (when measured against other fine art papers on the market today) in tonal range value, line quality, line contrast, and ruggedness.

Optica One is Breathing Color's latest innovation tailor-made for the demanding and discerning photographer who values superior performance in print quality.

Optica One Fine Art Inkjet Paper is water-resistant and instant drying, and can, therefore, be coated with the Timeless or Glamour 2 print varnish to create coated finishes on 100% Cotton Rag fine art paper. You can use Timeless Gloss, Satin, and Matte with the process outlined in the video below. You can also use Glamour 2 Gloss, Matte, or a combination of the two when coating Optica One. 

Optica One Inkjet Paper Passes Blue Wool Test

Extensive independent testing by a UKAS accredited laboratory has concluded that the Optica One Fine Art Inkjet Paper meets and exceeds the standards set forth by the Fine Art Trade Guild for pH and lightfastness. The Fine Art Trade Guild has established these standards in order to protect the interests of consumers. Consumers who follow the Blue Wool Testing and the Fine Art Trade Guild standards can be confident that the art and framing supplies they use are archival.
