What TIPA Said

For printmakers who want an extra “glow” on select images, this 100% cotton, 340 gsm, natural white paper offers a high-gloss metallic finish. The paper features a special silvery shimmering surface effect for bold colours, a deep black and fine delineation of colour and tone. It is a prime choice for images with metallic elements, reflections, ice and snow or architecture. It is also a unique choice for black and white images with high contrast tones. Photo Rag® Metallic has no optical brighteners, is acid and lignin free and is ISO9706 compliant/museum quality for high age resistance.
