Red River Photo Metallic Inkjet Paper

The new 300gsm Polar Pearl Metallic Plus offers the proven benefits of the original 255gsm weight Polar Pearl Metallic with a more professional weight, thickness and feel. Photographers will discover amazing results from this truly unique inkjet paper that closely matches the look of photo lab metallic prints. Polar Pearl Metallic features the same aspects as its lab equivalent - a high gloss finish and a pearlescent base stock that yields an elegant iridescence. This paper is compatible with any inkjet printer and requires no special equipment, inks, or finishing techniques to achieve the metallic effect.

Kodak and their Endura Metallic process for photo labs originally made the metallic style print popular. After a number of years of research and development the same look and effect has been created for inkjet printing technology. Drew Hendrix, Vice President or Red River Paper notes, "This paper imparts a brilliant, almost luminescent look to your images with hints of pearlescent reflections. The new paper expands the creative freedom and capability of inkjet users from the professional to the enthusiast level."

300gsm Polar Pearl Metallic is now available directly from Red River Paper at The paper will be sold in 10 different sheet sizes. Rolls up to 24” width will be available soon. Color profiles for the new paper are available online for a wide variety of printer models –
