75lb. Arctic Polar Luster Rolls Details & Information

Description
Description

Setting the bar for premium photographic inkjet paper, Arctic Polar Luster is the paper pros demand and enthusiasts deserve. Arctic Polar Luster's surface represents the true modern photographic look and feel. Its extra weight and thickness gives the assurance you are a fine photographic print. The profoundly beautiful surface and state-of-the-art coating will make your photography look its best.

Arctic Luster features a deep luster finish which offers the perfect balance between deeply saturated color and minimized gloss reflectivity. If you use pigment inks, this is especially helpful and will greatly reduce gloss differential and bronzing.

Compatible with any inkjet printer, Arctic Polar Luster fits an important niche for professional photographers. Increasingly, pros and enthusiasts require a high-end photo feel product that combines quality and consistent usability. Unlike many of the new boutique photo papers flooding the market, this Luster will feed consistently, withstand handling, show minimal fingerprinting, and offer cost savings.

Deep luster (E-surface) offers the perfect balance for pigment ink printers. You get the best of both worlds:

  1. Wonderful color saturation of a microporous paper
  2. Greatly minimized gloss differential and bronzing associated with glossy media

Thanks to the microporous layer on the top of Arctic Polar Luster, large quantities of ink (read deeply saturated hues and blacks) will dry instantly. This means no smudging and minimal fingerprint troubles.

Ideal For:
  • Those looking for the best luster photo paper available
  • Saturated, sublime colors and stunning B&W
  • Projects that require a heavier and thicker media
  • Any inkjet printer
Good To Know:
  • Deep satin / luster finish
  • Acid free base stock. Coating slightly acidic.
  • There are no markings or logos on the back
  • Back of this product is not printable
  • Photo Grade paper.
  • Extra coating layer on back helps slow fade with dye inks
Features
  • Best available luster
  • Brilliant white paper tone
  • Elegant deep luster finish
  • Deepest blacks and wide color gamut with pigment and dye inks

PROFESSIONAL PROFILE

John Conn
Free-lance professional photographer
"I look for a luster surface for my B&W images, but the paper must also take well to a sepia tone with the warmer whites that I prefer, holding strong. Red River Arctic Polar Satin prints that I output on my Epson Stylus Pro 3800 printer give that edge to my work."

A great cold tone pure white paper with a luster surface. I like to have a consistent look to all my prints, so it's the only paper I use. I love that it comes in so many sizes. I print on everything from 5X7 to 13X19. I also buy 16X20, split it in half and print 8X20 panoramas. I print with a white border and the clean cool white is bright and fresh. My B&W prints look just as good as my color prints.

Attic Polar Luster has become my default when it comes to printing

Granted I am a Graduate Student who prints with university facilities so I haven’t printed with a big variety of brands. I really found and stuck with this paper after wanting to have brighter highlights and tone to my images. The images definitely have a brighter look to them than standard photo paper. Luster seems to lend itself towards the brighter material as well. I recommend it to anyone looking for a similar effect!

This order was for a replenishment box of APL 8x10 from one that I used up. I purchased a pro-level A3+ photo printer a in January 2021 and RR papers were recommended to me by a friend. After purchasing and testing papers from 3 sample kits, I settled on APL as one of the papers that I liked. I then purchased APL in 4x6, 8x10, and A3+, and RR Polar Matte in 4x6, 8x10, and A3+. I like the colors, detail, and contrast that I get from APL. I will continue to use this paper as my go-to luster paper.
