Polar Gloss Metallic 255 is a truly unique inkjet paper that closely matches the look of photo lab metallic prints. Polar Gloss Metallic 255 features the same aspects as its lab equivalent - a high gloss finish and a pearlescent base stock that yields an elegant iridescence in your images. The new paper is compatible with any inkjet printer and requires no special equipment, inks, or finishing techniques to achieve the metallic effect.

Reviews for Polar Gloss Metallic 255 Rolls

The Best Photo Paper Available!
Uwe Hoffmann
When it comes to color, or eye popping B&W nothing beats Red River Polar Gloss Metallic. I've been using this paper for many years now whenever I did not actually have my work sublimation printed directly into large sheets of aluminum metal, however the cost of this is prohibitive for large volumes of work. I highly recommend Red River Polar Gloss Metallic for any nature and wildlife photographer whether it's animal portraits, macro photography, landscapes, or night sky photography, you won't regret it because your photos will be vivid, and transmit exactly what made you capture the moment.

Would Benefit From Dry Mounting
Jan Barbas
I like this paper with it's opalescent finish for some color prints. The paper is thinner, lighter weight, than some of RR's others and over time large prints which I mounted with hinging tape at the top have wrinkled a bit. Because of the very lively, shiny finish this shows strongly, and I wish I had these prints dry mounted.

Great and affordable replacement for the big name metallic papers
I have switched to printing a lot of content on this paper from my favorite big name pearl paper. At the current price point you can't go wrong. I use it with the rrp custom profiles for my Canon Pro100 and my prints are popping! Thanks rrp.

My Favorite
Christopher Miller
Verified Buyer
I’ve been a RRP customer and enthusiast for about 10 years. The Glossy Metallic is my favorite of all and the newer Luster Metallic is a close second. I’m big on saturated colors and high contrast and this paper produces those the best of any paper I’ve tried. The prices can’t be beat either. RRP gives the same or better quality as Epson, Canon, etc. but is less expensive.

Lives up to the hype...

While looking for metallic paper options for my new Canon Pro-100, I came across some comparisons mentioning this paper as a great, lower cost option. I've only done a couple prints so far, but... It definitely compares to both lab metallic prints and any others I've seen. It has a slight warm cast to it that definitely compliments most any color landscape. BW on this paper isn't my favorite, but it's not bad. The white just isn't as pure as I'd like for most of by BW prints.

"Aurora Art Natural paper is my favorite. It holds the ink and colors true to the colors I see on my screen and has just enough texture to add to the artwork."
