Frequently Asked Questions

Does Polar Pearl Metallic work with pigment ink printers?

Yes. We've tested the paper with all pigment based inkjet printers dating back to the Epson 2200. Newer machine are virtually flawless on this surface. Older pigments such as the original Epson UltraChrome™ also show remarkably little pigment articfacts such as bronzing and gloss differential.

What is the surface like?

If you've never seen a photo lab metallic print you will likely enjoy the look. Think of a high gloss surface with a pleasing slightly warm tone. Overall, images have a glow almost like light is coming from the paper. Now imagine that the solid colors and white space in your image take on an extra effect that mixes metallic hints and pearlescent colorful reflections.

Is this like photo lab paper?

Yes, Polar Pearl Metallic is a photobase media with a microporous coating. It feels like a contemporary photo lab print.

Are their any markings on the back of the paper?

No. All Red River Papers are without markings or logos.

Can I print on the back of Polar Pearl Metallic?

No, this paper will not accept inkjet ink. We do not recommend writing with pen as the pressure could create marks on the front of the sheet.

What types of images look good on this surface?

Polar Pearl Metallic will add luminance and depth to any image. Some types of photography lend themselves to being printing on a metallic surface. Images with solid colors, reflections, and negative space (whites) will look especially stunning on this new paper.

Here are some examples. Each has notations about parts of the image that would look particularily interesting on the Metallic surface.
