Metallic prints from service bureaus and specialty metallic printing papers have been around for a while and for some subjects they create a stunning result. Epson has now stepped up to the plate and is offering two new metallic photo papers of their own with two different finishes (see article here). It is called Metallic Photo Paper Glossy and Metallic Photo Paper Luster with surface finishes as described in the name. Both papers take a rather subtle approach with a whiter substrate and avoid being highly reflective or garish. Sheet sizes will be 8.5”x11”, 13”x19”, and 17”x22”, and rolls will be available also for larger format printers.
