Best Inkjet Paper for Aviation

© Larry Grace

This one is a no-brainer! Photo metallic inkjet paper is the clear choice for printing aviation photography. Its pearlescent reflective quality will enhance the sleek lines and metallic surfaces of aircraft.

High gloss papers are also a good choice as they enhance saturation and sharpness. Usually bright white, glossy paper reproduces the deep blues and stark whites of clouds and sky.

For extra protection from handling and fingerprints, consider using a bright white satin photo paper like 66lb. Arctic Polar Satin. You will get the same saturation and tonal depth as a gloss.

For photography of vintage aircraft, or if you want a fine art vibe from your prints, choose a fiber based baryta like San Gabriel SemiGloss Fiber. This type of paper looks and feels just like a darkroom print from the 1960's. Even better, it offers awesome saturation, tonal range, and black density.
