TTechNova has recently expanded its portfolio of inkjet digital media products by partnering with Canson, one of the world’s most reputed manufacturers of Inkjet Fine Art and Photographic Papers. As per this tie-up, TechNova will offer a select range of media from Canson’s Infinity Paper series to Indian fine art printers.
Canson Infinity Papers are manufactured by the Canson and Arches fine art paper mills, located in France. Products from these two leading mills have been embraced by leading artists over the years, including Picasso, Chagall, Warhol, Ingress, Miro and Alechinsky.
