Metallic Paper


Metallic paper doesn't have quite the history that the rest of papers have, but this newcomer has a visual payoff unlike any other. Where metallic paper truly shines (pun intended) is in the color vibrancy. If you were to look at my photo "Off The Pier," on a glossy print and place it beside a metallic print, the oranges within the sky are going to shimmer and shine beyond anything that a glossy print can offer.

A metallic print, aside from offering better vibrancy, also is more resilient than a glossy print. Metallic prints are coated with a thick protective layer which offers scratch protection and is less susceptible to crinkling if rolled. The key thing to watch for with a metallic print is fingerprints, however.

Due to the natural sheen that this paper gives off, it is best to frame it without glass.
