I've just been looking at a new 'metallic lustre' finish paper from PermaJet.
An interesting option for some higher contrast images, currently only in the UK, but available elsewhere by June
Not knowing all the range of papers available elsewhere, does anyone know of similar papers under different names/brands?
Hard to say without a sample of the Permajet in my SpectrumViz list, a hint .... :-)
In the more metallic category I have three samples; Moab Slickrock Metallic Pearl and the identical Red River Polar Pearl Metallic (Neil's Lexjet will be the same) and the heavier, 290gsm, Sihl 4840 Masterclass Pearl High Gloss Photo that differs in look too, more gloss, more reflection. OBA shift more visible going from tungsten to daylight than in the other two.
In the Pearlescent group I have 5 qualities, three brands, two gloss varieties, weights the same. They are very similar. One is the Mitsubishi Glossy Pearlescent Photo, probably the source for this Pearlescent group. In the US it will be available as a Pictorico or Gekko quality I guess, there is an issue with brand names that Mitsubishi can use in different countries.
There is a Canon silver paper for the dye inks of the Canon Dreamlabo dry minilab printer. 200 gsm, more silver paint like surface, least reflection of all.
