Ice Nine

On the floor at PhotoPlus 2010

Day two of the PDN PhotoPlus 2010 show came to a close and 400 lucky (and patient) people walked away with signed prints from Michael Zide, Salvatore Vasapolli, Andrew Darlow and Jody Dole. Our buddies at ClearBags supplied archival Crystal Clear Bags to protect all those signed prints.  Thank you all for stopping by our booth and enduring the long lines.  

The best part of any trade show is to talk to our fans.  We heard tons of stories about why you love Moab, and listened to your suggestions about what you want from us.  We showcased the Entradalopes and Chinle Ice Nine portfolios, and demonstrated new and fun ways to present your work.

But the real star of the show was Somerset Museum Rag.  Our motto is 'you've got to feel it to believe it,' and sure enough, everyone who touched the new Somerset Museum Rag fell in love with its lush and supple surface and its 4th generation coating that produces deep, rich blacks.  

If you were at the show and liked what you saw, then come back for more tomorrow as we round off our Moab Master print signing event with Barbara Bordnick, Jose Gaytan and Ryszard Horowitz.

Making the Rounds: Northwest

For those of you up in the northwest, we have two events coming up at some of the best Photo resellers in the area:

If you're looking for some one-on-one printing advice, have any paper-related questions or want to see some of our new products, Tom York (who heads up Moab) will be at your disposal on both of these days. Both stores will be offering a 10% discount on all Moab items during their event days.

The events will be the "official" launch of our new Chinle Ice Nine Portfolios and the new Entradalopes.  Both are perfect items for the holidays and the portfolios are great for photographers producing end of year projects.

Hope to see you there.

Laying Out Your Images

If you're a portrait or wedding photographer and have ever wondered how people easily layout their images when printing on Moab's two sided papers, including our new 5x7 Entradalope cards, then I have a tip for you.  

At the Photo Plus show Jim Graham, a Moab Master, produced a Wedding Album with our new Chinle Ice Nine Portfolio, using a product called Photo Junction.  He spent about 10 minutes introducing me to the product and within that time I felt like I could easily layout a entire wedding album on my own.  The cool thing is the program is free, easy to use and will help you with digital workflow and image layout. 

The Imaging Buffet

From Andrew Darlow's popular site The Imaging Buffet listing some highlights from PhotoPlus

Moab Paper (Booth #630) Moab recently unveiled some great looking portfolio books named ICE NINE, in 8×9 and 12×13 inch format. Also, the company has a great sample rack with their entire photo line. I made a print for their booth this year, and the company printed up a card with one of my photos and a partially excerpted tip from my book, 301 Inkjet Tips and Techniques. I also recommend checking out the Moab Somerset Photo Satin 300 paper, as well as the amazing botanical image by Barbara Bordnick printed on the company’s Moenkopi Japanese Washi. Very impressive.
