Kiss is an American hard rock band from New York. It was formed in January 1973 by guitarist Paul Stanley and bassist Gene Simmons.

In their early days, the band was trying to find a way to stand out in the rock ‘n’ roll world. One day, guitarist Paul Stanley suggested that they put on make-up and adopt distinct personas on stage to create a strong visual impact. The other members were immediately excited by the idea, and they started working on their costumes and make-up, which became an integral part of their image.

However, most of the band members did not like wearing make-up at first. Drummer Peter Criss said he felt like he was wearing a ski mask, while bassist Gene Simmons found his make-up very uncomfortable. Despite this, they persevered, convinced that the make-up and costumes would make their show a unique and memorable experience. So they worked hard to perfect their image, referencing characters from cartoons and horror films to create their alter-egos on stage.

Their strategy eventually paid off, as Kiss quickly became famous for their spectacular shows and unique look. Their make-up and costumes became iconic, and inspired many other rock bands to adopt similar styles.

Longevity of carbon pigment inks
Tests carried out in the USA, in the Wilhem research center, guarantee a longevity of 150 years if these inks are associated with acid-free papers, with the Hahnemühle or Canson paper ranges we work with.
On a more technical aspect, the carbon inks are encapsulated: it is coal dust mixed with a binder which allows to deposit it on the paper. No difference in density between the printer output and after drying. There is a slight evaporation of the binder which stabilizes the pigment on the coating. It remains then the coal dust, which will give the density and nuance of the black and white impression.
The inks are made from pure monochromatic pigments chosen for their resistance to light, available in seven progressive shades, from light gray to black. They are specially designed to reflect light back to the viewer’s eye and completely eliminate color anomalies such as metamerism (which changes color depending on the light source). The Piezography System, monochrome inks, provides a unique photographic look that includes depth and brilliance throughout the image surface.
The formula allows for a longevity that reaches record levels when printing on archival and fine art papers. The print quality is at least equal to the best silver baryta print, if not better.
