Kodak Press Release
Brand Management Group will launch their Kodak Professional range of digital media at this year’s Photokina, Cologne, 18-23 September.
This superior range of digital fine art and photo media delivers an exciting choice of surface textures and formats to the studio printers, professional photographers and enthusiasts. The Professional range of papers have been rigorously tested for optimum image vibrancy and longevity and are backed by Kodak’s excellent reputation for quality and consistency. All papers are supplied in a range of both sheet and roll formats.
The range includes the new 255g Professional Inkjet Photo Glossy and Lustre papers, which represent the latest advances in digital paper technology. Both papers offer improved “lay flat” characteristics, increased colour gamuts and higher DMAX enabling the end user to achieve deeper and richer blacks, a more dynamic range and more detail in the shadow areas.
The Kodak Professional range also includes two heavyweight, archival quality art papers: Fine Art Textured and Fine Art Smooth, both 315g.
Fine Art Textured, with its matte surface and natural white colour, emulates a traditional art paper making it ideal for fine art and photo reproductions.
Fine Art Smooth, a 100% cotton paper with a silky smooth surface and high white tone, produces images of outstanding colour intensity and contrast.
The 285g Fine Art Fibre Satin and Fine Art Fibre Glossy papers offer photographers a state-of-the-art digital equivalent to traditional fibre-based photo papers. The unique microporous, acid inhibiting surface coating produces images equal, and even superior, to traditionally made prints, with a dMax rating of 2.7 and a market-leading colour gamut.
Having taken responsibility for the international marketing, sale and distribution of Kodak inkjet media products to imaging professionals in January 2012, the Brand Management Group (BMG), with more than 15 years experience selling inkjet media, equipment, and supplies across all market sectors, is actively developing the portfolio in collaboration with Kodak.
Brand Management Group Europe are pleased to announce that Swains International will be the appointed distributor for the Kodak Professional Range in the UK. Swains International plc, based in Hunstanton, Norfolk, are the UK’s leading Photo Imaging Wholesale Distributor and offer a vast range of product from the world’s most recognised and respected brands.

“BMG look forward to working with Swains in the UK” said Sarah Punt, Sales & Marketing Manager for BMG Europe. “We will continue to extend our European network of distribution in the lead up to and during Photokina.
