Finally tried the Polar Gloss and Luster Metallic from the sample pack, and was just blown away. Both color and b/w prints just fantastic but the b/w prints are just a whole new dimension in detail and graduation. I shoot some landscape but mostly macro floral photography. The Gloss and Luster Metallic work fantastic with both. Just recently sent some samples of my work to a friend I have known all my life who had no idea I was into photography and he was blown away with my work and now wants to purchase and see more but I have not shown him any of my photos printed on this terrific METALLIC paper as I wait for my next order to come in. I know he will find them stunning as I did! Do not hesitate to give this paper a try.

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.

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.

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?".

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

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!

So beautiful...on first try!

Such depth and detail. My crop-frame image of minerals printed beautifully at 13x19. The greys look like polished silver and the highlights seem to float in front of the image, almost 3-D with textures that seem plapable. The detailed instructions and ICC profile provided by Red River for my Canon Pixma Pro-100 made the first print look exactly the way I wanted direct from Adobe Lightroom Classic.
