I purchased this paper to experiment with. With the right subject matter, it is gorgeous. I have not printed with metallic paper before, so I can not make a comparison with other metallic papers. I print on Canon printers and used the setting for Canon's Glossy Plus as suggested. Beautiful colors, great snap.
Excellent finish, the bright is fantastic, my customer love it!!! They think that is my professional retouched or something but it's the paper
This paper creates an image presentation that can't be beat. The colors "POP" and for me, a professional photographer who sells many of the metal prints images, this paper is PERFECT to print out my "sample" images on so that my clients can get a good idea of what the metal prints will look like as well, since it has so many of those FANTASTIC VIBRANT qualities. I am in love with this paper and the price makes it affordable for my needs as well. It prints out great and just "WOWS" my clients.
This is the first metallic paper that I have tried, so I can't compare it to another brand, but I can't imagine better results. I have printed about 40 pictures so far with my Canon Pixma Pro 100 and I would say that I love about 35 of them. 8x10s are next for me. Good Luck!
The Metallic Papers by Inkpress are amazing. Pictures come to life. This is the only paper we use to print photos on.
Inkpress Metallic Paper (255 gsm, 10 mil, Metallic Glossy Surface, 8.5x11", 5 Sheets by Inkpress) was awesome. Looks really good and shiny wet. I had a number of composited shots that a metallic look to them to begin with. While using the Inkpress Metallic Paper it really added an extra dynamic to the overal quality and visual dynamic of my prints. I choose this paper for the fact that it is quick drying and does not need a seperate 'fixing' spray. The paper seems robust. Does not easily scratch or smudge...just make sure you are utilizing a color management workflow (both computer monitor and printer) and you will not be dissapointed.
I've purchased this prooduct in 2 different sizes and use it to print out my son's racing Photos in 13x19 and 11x17 sizes to resemble racing Magazine covers. They catch the eye of anyone vwalking into his office. I won't be Going back to any other Photo stock anytime soon, this paper is the "Races Edge" as far as we are concerned.
I love this paper it produces knock your socks off spectacular prints of Architectural photos especially anything with metal. Landscapes are also nice with this. I took a nice shot of our local Lift bridge and the resulting print has people who see it asking how I did it...since the bridge seems to jump off the photo and with the light hitting it at certain angles seems almost 3D.
Great professional quality results. makes photos POP off the paper. love it!
Few people seem to know about metallic prints yet and they will certainly stun the viewer. A few years ago, the only metallic prints I could find were special order from Japan and extremely expensive. I was very happy to find a reasonably priced metallic paper from this site- Only caution, under shiny glass some of the effect is lost. With this, the satin gloss, the loss isn't total- But, with the super shiny version, framing with museum or AR (not regular non-glare, that awful stuff) is absolutely necessary. If you do frame with good glass and have proper lighting, your prints will glow almost as if backlit. Definitely worth the extra money if you've got prints that will stand out on the paper- My favorites so far have been ones with strong reds and yellows, mostly sunsets and butterflies. Sounds tame/typical, but when you see that fiery glow the picture is really transported to a higher state of being! Seriously, if you can swing the extra bucks it's worth at least picking up a small pack to test with- but buying larger quantities is always cheaper in the long run, and I can go through this paper like nobody's business! If selling matted prints at a show/gallery, if you're using 'clearbags' pro clear art bags, you'll be just fine. I wouldn't use any dimmer bags though, I've become quite attached to the good stuff and can't go back!
