Photo Paper prints are available in a variety of textures and thicknesses. Standard photo and print papers include matte, lustre and gloss surfaces. We even have a brilliant metallic paper. All are great for standard prints for albums, scrapbooks or framing behind glass.
Matte Photo Paper is the most commonly used paper. It is a cellulose blend with a matte surface that is bright white. It has a smooth non-reflective surface for clean colors and high density blacks. Matte photo paper has a weight of 230gsm, is 12 mils thick and has a 98% opacity rating.
Lustre Photo Paper is a resin coated cellulose blend paper. It has a lustre/satin surface with a slight “pebble” texture while still displaying clean lines and crisp colors. Lustre papers have been the industry standard for photographic reproduction for decades. It allows ease of viewing without surface reflections. Our lustre photo paper has a weight of 255gsm, is 10 mils thick and has a 96% opacity rating.
Gloss Photo Paper is also a resin coated cellulose blend paper. It has a high gloss surface that is ultra smooth. The blacks are rich and the colors are brilliant. It may be a photographer’s most used paper. This paper has the greatest color gamut, dmax, and image resolution available. This 260gsm paper is 10 mils thick and has a 96% opacity rating.
Metallic Photo Paper is a resin coated cellulose blend paper. It is ultra smooth, but nearly appears to have texture due to its great color depth giving it that extra shimmer. The surface finish is metallic/pearlescent providing rich contrast with bright whites and rich blacks. This paper comes in a 255gsm weight that is 10 mils thick. It has a 96% opacity rating.
Premium paper prints include fine art textured paper and fine art smooth paper. The fine art papers have look and feel of true watercolor papers. The textured can be compared to standard cold press watercolor papers, and the smooth compared to hot press papers. Both papers have a good heavy thickness.
The 600MT paper is a cotton blend that is highly textured. It has a good heavy feel as it is a 320gsm paper that is 18.5mils thick. It has a good bright white surface with a 97% opacity rating. Similar to watercolor cold press papers, the texture is robust, but does not negatively affect the ink lay down.
Optica One is a beautifully smooth fine art paper. As a 300gsm paper, it has a nice heft and felt feel. This 100% cotton rag paper is 16mils thick and has an opacity rating of 97%. Optica One is the brightest white of our smooth fine art papers. The bright white surface makes it ideal for black and white as well as color images. It is similar to standard hot press watercolor papers, but with the thickness that lends to the quality of the print.
Signa Smooth is a more archival option in smooth fine art papers. It is rated to have a 100+ year display life when under glass. Its surface is a smooth felt with a slightly “natural” color. Still carrying a good heavy feel, it is a 270gsm paper that is 16mils thick. It has an opacity of 98%. The dmax is rich and colors are vibrant. Ideal for any project that requires longevity in color and fade resistance. The base composition of this paper is 100% cotton rag.
Riverstone Rag Fine Art paper has a superior baryta finish with a fine stipple texture. It can be best compared to fiber based darkroom prints and is ideal for black and white images. The color is rich and the blacks are deep. This is a premium archival paper with a longevity rating of 100+ years. The base composition of Riverstone Rag is 100% cotton rag and has a 98% opacity. It is a good dense paper at 365gsm and 17mils thick. This paper has a truly luxurious look and feel.
