Zimmerman Portrait Designs Displays Senior Portraits on Sunset Photo Metallic Paper

Last week, I received a nice note from Ric Zimmerman of Zimmerman Portrait Designs in Billings, MT saying how much he has enjoyed using LexJet’s Sunset Photo Metallic Paper.  Here’s what Ric wrote: “When I received it, I must admit that I wasn’t really excited to try it, so I walked around the box for a day or two. Then, I decided, what the heck, and wow, I was really blown away! The results that came off my Canon iPF8100 printer were fantastic!”

Zimmerman Portrait Designs just happened to be in the middle of changing all of their studio samples for the upcoming senior season, so Ric decided to print all the displays with Sunset Photo Metallic. Here are some of the photos he sent me.

“We’ve had so many comments on how my images just seem to pop and have a 3-D look to them,” says Ric. “We have added Sunset Photo Metallic to our product line and I am excited to see how sales go.” Because his sales staff is so excited about the metallic prints, he believes his customers will be too.

Ric closed his letter with these kind words: “Thanks for sending me the paper. LexJet is always on top of the newest and best. Keep up the good work guys. You and your staff are always a pleasure to work with.”

Thanks for the great letter, Ric! We’ll look forward to hearing more about how your senior customers react to seeing their portraits printed on this exciting new product.

    Just wondering if this paper works ok with dye based inks. I have a Canon i9900

  2. Phil,
    This paper works fine with the Canon i9900.

    I like the picture hangers shown in this article and would like Lexjet to offer more products like this. Do you know where to find these hangers?

  4. The hardware from our LexJet I-Banner Spring Back Banner Stands can be used to hang prints. You can attach the top and bottom rails to the print and then use the hanging mounts that are supplied with the stand to hang the print.
