Polar Gloss Metallic 255

Verified Buyer
Excellent paper my choice for B&W and Color saturation printing. I use an Epson XP 15000 printer, and it pops.

I printed my first picture in 1957 as a High School Year Book Photographer. I have used many papers over the years since then. This paper is definitely the BEST. It makes me look so much better as a photographer.

Paper and Profile
Larry Bouterie
Red River papers speak for themselves. More importantly, the Red River ICC profiles match my computer to my printer to make the images reflect my vision.

Awesome for B&W water scenes
G. R.
I love using this paper for B&W landscapes containing reflections. The metallic finish on the paper is perfect for bringing the scene to life. I've had several people say "Wow! What is that paper?".

Polar Gloss Metallic
David Pavlich
My customers are amazed at how my tone mapped shots seem to jump off the print. The rendering of bold colors and contrasts keeps me coming back for this paper. You won't be disappointed! (Epson P800)

Fantastic for digital painting prints
Ol S
I paint digital art in a very painterly style, in all sorts of subject matter ranging from sci-fi/fantasy to real life and landscapes, and without fail the Polar Gloss Metallic always makes the prints look even more brilliant than the digital originals. And it always wows the customers when they see it in person. A lot of people have never seen a metallic print before, and it's always a great sales pitch to reveal this kind of print to them.

Great paper for certain images
Jack Bynes
For most of my images i prefer a watercolor type paper. However, this paper is ideal for specific images that can be enhanced by reflectivity. Recently I completed a series of abstracts based on fossils and minerals taken at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. The reflectivity of this paper and true color reproduction popped the images as if they had a third dimension. Another area where this paper is unsurpassed is black and white images of metal. I have been a photographer for 50 years. This is truly remarkable paper!

My go to paper for B&W
Edward Tepper
This is my go to paper for my B&W prints. Blacks are black & subtle tones pop. I had a 3 photo series accepted into a gallery show. The owners really loved the paper.

Excellent results

I am very pleased with Polar Pearl Metallic paper. The color saturation of a low light historical room on this paper was amazing.
