Share Article

Photographers, artists, and graphic designers can use this paper with pro-model inkjet printers in their studios to create stunningly beautiful prints for exhibitions, retail displays, wedding and portrait clients, and fine art. Until now, metallic photo prints could only be produced with expensive chemical photo-processing equipment used by labs.

LexJet is so excited about the creative possibilities of this paper that we will be conducting a Shine On! Print Competition this summer.

LexJet, a nationwide supplier of professional model inkjet printers and high-quality papers and canvas for inkjet photo and fine-art printing, has introduced Sunset Photo Metallic paper for inkjet photo printing. The paper enables users of pro-model, pigment-ink photo printers to produce prints with a distinctively luxurious and radiant sheen. Until now, metallic photo papers were available only from labs that used traditional chemical photo-processing equipment. With Sunset Photo Metallic paper, creative professionals can use their in-studio inkjet printers to retain total creative control over how their final prints will look.

By bringing new levels of dimensionality and richness to the look of inkjet photo prints, LexJet Sunset Photo Metallic paper expands the range of creative options for professional photographers, artists, graphic designers, photo labs, and commercial printing companies who print images for exhibitions, competitions, retail and museum displays, and wedding and portrait clients.

“LexJet ‘s Sunset Photo Metallic is the paper I’ve been waiting for,” says photographer Jack Johnson. “I’ve made a number of prints of my landscape photos, and everyone who has seen them has commented on their feeling of depth and luminosity. I can’t wait to print more images on this paper!”

LexJet Sunset Photo Metallic is a 10-mil, 255g premium paper with an instant-dry, scratch-resistant ink-receptive coating. The paper is compatible with the pigment inks used in the latest generations of pro-model aqueous-ink printers from Canon, Epson, and HP. The unique look of the prints comes from a combination of a lustrous sheen in the base paper and the high-gloss reflective finish of the print surface. The paper is available in three sheet sizes (8.5 x 11, 17 x 22 in., and 13 x 19 in.) and five roll widths (10 in., 17 in., 24 in., 36 in., and 44 in.).

“LexJet is so excited about the creative possibilities of this paper that we will be conducting a Shine On! Print Competition this summer,” says LexJet product manager Alex Ried. “The individuals who submit the best images printed on LexJet Sunset Photo Metallic paper can qualify to win a brand-new 24-in. Canon imagePROGRAF iPF6300 printer, one of three Apple iPads, or LexJet gift certificates worth up to $750.
