Fiber Ink Studio on ILFORD GALERIE Photo Papers

Lesly Deschler Canossi and Andrew Buckland founded Fiber Ink Studio in New York as an alternative for high quality inkjet photo prints. They met while attending Graduate School at Maryland Institute College of Art. Both are artists and photographers with decades of printing experience who lead workshops on color management and digital printing.

Lesly has graciously offered the guest blog below to talk about why they often use ILFORD GALERIE Prestige Gold Fibre Silk and Smooth Pearl for client work.
