Introducing Canon’s New PRO-1000 17-inch Printer
The Satin-Finish Paper for the Long Run
When print production managers need a paper that delivers rich, consistent photo and image quality and can go the distance for high production runs, they turn to LexJet Sunset Production eSatin 250g.
With a high-end, traditional satin finish and an economical price point, Sunset Production eSatin is an ideal choice for print shops, fine art reproduction companies, professional photographers and other imaging specialists looking for a lightweight, high-volume alternative.
It’s comparable to other photo papers on the market, but at a much lower price. For mounting or framing, it’s an ideal lightweight alternate to the award-winning Sunset Photo eSatin Paper 300g, with the identical satin finish. Sunset Production eSatin gives you the same wet-lab look, making it the go-to choice for high-quality posters, photo albums and other photo output needs.
It’s available in rolls from 17- to 60-inches, making it an optimal option for long runs on any aqueous inkjet Canon, Epson or HP printers. Plus, the Production eSatin uses the same printer profiles as the 300g, so you can transition easily between media without any issues.
It dries instantly and resists scratches, making it perfect for schools, corporate displays, retail graphics, décor and other applications where image quality at an economical price is crucial.

Photo Papers the Pros Trust
Kodak has been a trusted name in the photo industry since 1888, when it was founded by George Eastman in Rochester, NY. These days, Kodak brings its mastery of all things photo-related to inkjet media that is compatible with Epson, Canon and HP printers.
Today’s Scouting Report focuses on Kodak Professional Inkjet Photo Papers, Glossy Finish and Lustre Finish. These papers were updated in 2012 to perform even better with modern inkjet printer inks. They have a larger color gamut and higher Dmax to produce images with richer blacks, a wide color spectrum and the finest details, even in shadows.
These inkjet photo papers were color texted with Monaco Gamutworks, which revealed that the colors that printed on them were accurate to the color captured in-camera. This true-color output makes the Kodak photo papers ideal for weddings, high-end retail, landscape, portraits, exhibit photography and more. The lay-flat technology that keeps the papers from curling make them easy to work with and ideal for portraits, as well.
Kodak Professional Inkjet Photo Paper, Glossy Finish weighs in at 255 gsm with a smooth, high-gloss finish for maximum impact. Kodak Professional Inkjet Photo Paper, Lustre Finish weighs in at 255 gsm with a satin finish similar to e-surface papers used in traditional darkroom printing. Plus, they have the Kodak watermark printed on the back — a symbol recognized by discerning end-customers.
Both resin-based inkjet photo papers are available in various sheet and roll sizes up to 60 inches wide. Call a LexJet representative to learn more about Kodak’s modern media at 800-453-9538.
