New Photo Metallic Inkjet Paper Expands Printing Horizons for Pros and Enthusiasts Alike

Dallas, Texas, November 2012 – The new 300gsm Polar Gloss Metallic 255 Plus offers the proven benefits of the original 255gsm weight Polar Gloss Metallic 255 with a more professional weight, thickness and feel. Photographers will discover amazing results from this 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. This paper is compatible with any inkjet printer and requires no special equipment, inks, or finishing techniques to achieve the metallic effect.
Kodak™ and their Endura™ Metallic process for photo labs originally made the metallic style print popular. After a number of years of research and development the same look and effect has been created for inkjet printing technology. Drew Hendrix, Vice President or Red River Paper notes, "This paper imparts a brilliant, almost luminescent look to your images with hints of pearlescent reflections. The new paper expands the creative freedom and capability of inkjet users from the professional to the enthusiast level."
