Wow

I ordered this paper by mistake. Since it was here I decided to use it instead of trying to return it and thank goodness I did. The prints I made were wonderful, bright, and amazing. I will continue to order it in the future. It makes black and white photos sing!

I was just blown away with my first print using Polar Luster Metallic from my sample kit! Ordered 20 sheets of 13x19 that was on sale for $38.97! Epson doesn't even offer the icc profile for their Metallic Paper for XP-15000 so Red River Paper is my answer for Metal prints!

Polar Luster Metallic Rave Review

I am a wildlife photographer and my images of the Great Blue Heron have been absolutely stunning on the Polar Luster Metallic paper using the Canon Pixma 100 inkjet printer. I went to the local frame shop and they were gasping with amazement at the subtle but eerie glow of the silvers and blues of a Heron in flight. I much prefer the Polar Luster to the equally stunning Polar Gloss Metallic paper. Great Job, Great Service, BRAVO

Gorgeous for digital art

I'm an illustrator who sells art prints at conventions, and this has become my go-to paper for my prints. The metallic effect is very subtle, giving my art a shimmery glow. My customers are always so impressed when they see it in action. I wouldn't recommend it for artists who work primarily in traditional media, but digital artists who work with saturated colors (as I do) should definitely try it out.

Nice for Black and White, wish it was 75 pound paper

I compared wide tonal range black and white prints made on this metallic paper and my usual Arctic Polar 75 pound paper. The Black and White prints look better on the metallic paper BUT it bends and crinkles quite a bit more easily. Please have a 75 pound option!

Love it, more subtle than the Gloss Metallic

As someone mentioned, it is more subtle than the gloss, and thus has a different look. I would suggest trying both before buying a larger amount. I shoot landscapes and the images that I want this look for (water works well), I like the more subtle and slightly different look and texture over the gloss metallic. You'll probably get the best look hanging it somewhere where you get a lot of light on the print.

Wish the Weight of this paper was more obvious

Have always been a fan of Red River and still am. So little disappointed, that after reading the announcement about this paper I ordered some thinking I was getting a Metallic paper similar to my Arctic Polar Luster 75lb which I so love. When the paper arrived I went to put it in the drawer next to all my other boxes of different Red River Papers when I noticed that unlike all the others there was no listing on the label for what lb weight the paper was. I had to do some digging to discover that the weight of this paper is only 66 lbs, not 75 lbs like the Arctic Polar I thought it was being referenced to. Not sure why they seem to not be as up front about this as before, and have deleted this from their initial description and box label.
