We’re very excited about this new product because LexJet customers have been asking for an inkjet-printable metallic photo paper for years. After spending considerable time and effort researching possible solutions, we’re confident that we can now deliver the high level of quality and specific type of look that LexJet customers have told us they want in a photo metallic paper.
With this breakthrough inkjet photo paper, you will be able to create prints in your studio that look very similar to those produced by labs that use KODAK PROFESSIONAL ENDURA Metallic VC Digital Paper™ in conjunction with a photo processor such as a Durst Lambda or a LightJet.
The utterly distinctive look of LexJet Sunset Photo Metallic Paper comes from a combination of a subtle sheen infused in the base paper and the high-gloss, reflective finish of the instant-dry, scratch-resistant microporous coating that receives the inks.
Sunset Photo Metallic Paper for inkjet printing will enable you to add new levels of dimensionality, depth, and richness to wedding photographs, exhibition prints, fine art, and commercial displays. By using the inkjet printer in your studio, you will have total creative control over how your final prints look.
LexJet Sunset Photo Metallic Paper (10 mil, 255g) is a premium product designed for use with the newest generations of pigment inks supplied with pro-model desktop and wide-format printers from Canon, Epson or HP. All standard sheet sizes from 8.5 x 11 to 17 x 22 in. will be available, as well as popular roll widths from 10 to 44 in.
The larger roll widths will be ideal not only for wedding photo enlargements, but also for converting all types of images into eye-catching displays for trade shows and events.
We expect to start shipping the papers sometime in early April. A LexJet account specialist will be happy to take pre-orders, and answer any questions you may have about achieving best possible print results with LexJet’s unique new inkjet photo paper. Call today at 800-853-4538.
