Metallic Paper

Posted by: Roger Reeves and Terrie Heslop on 12/02/2013 - 7:30 PM

It has come to our attention that Metallic Paper is now available when looking at paper print options. Not sure when this came available but is a pleasant surprise.

When I was looking for alternative acrylic printing - there was a company that printed on metallic paper and adhered it to the acrylic - their claim was the image was brighter.

Wow! That's fantastic news! I wonder why there wasn't an announcement. Some of us have been asking for this option for a long time. :-)

i've been asking for it for a while now, it's good that it's there now. i've always used that paper for my things as it creates a deeper look and shiny brass. though i kind of wish the paper question page showed what the paper looks like because i know it doesn't look like paper rag - they all look the same on that page.

I am thinking that it must be a combination in the paper and the ink used....I know Ritz Pix offers metallic prints and they talk about the metallic ink they use.....Regardless it is good news.

All new items are exposed on the forum before the announcements because the

I, and I'm sure others, suggested having this option over a year ago...this is wonderful news! I used to order all my HDR prints from White House Custom Colour, because they had metallic paper. My HDR photos really "pop" on it. Thanks, Sean!

P.S. - I believe metallic paper is exposed paper, not inkjet.

@Mike Savad - I tried to point out to support that the paper type images were wrong back in Oct of 2012, didn't get very far:

Very cool. I use metallic paper when I print my own here (up to 18x12).

Is this Kodak Endura, Fuji Pearl, or some other type of metallic paper?
