FB Mono Gloss 320
Awarded winner of Best Inkjet Media: Photographic Finish 2017 by Photography News magazine.
PermaJet's new FB Mono Gloss Baryta is a true baryta paper with an appealing glazed gloss surface on a fine art heavyweight base of 320gsm.
This inkjet paper has been specifically developed with a natural white base tint to emulate the surface finish, texture and coating of traditional darkroom baryta/fibre based papers, making it the perfect choice for the serious monochrome worker.
The silky smooth high gloss coating has been meticulously applied directly onto a true baryta layer and fibre base enabling its users to create intense, rich blacks and creamy whites.
Superb detail and definition can be achieved with its extended tonal range and excellent archival properties.
The surface exhibits a high degree of glossiness, density and vibrancy. An astounding DMAX reading of 2.38 makes this the perfect media for outstanding black and white reproductions - and even if you only print colour, its unique appearance opens up a whole new way of presenting the qualities of your printed image.

The unique silver based Metallic Paper from PermaJet! Titanium Lustre has a beautiful pronounced textured lustre finish on a heavyweight 280gsm silver resin coated base.
A photo paper truly resembling the look, feel and print quality of a metallic surface with its high silver pigment content - this is NOT one of the much less impressive 'pearlescent' papers on the market which is simply an 'effect' on the coating - the base of Titanium Lustre Metallic really does look like silver! Incredible detail and clarity is achievable delivering stunning high resolution visual impact and making your images just jump off the paper.
Its great tonal range, wide colour gamut and high D-max works extremely well with images that have vibrant colours, deep blacks or containing reflective metal surfaces such as chrome, silver or even gold! Everyday objects such as watches, jewellery, glass, metalwork and mirrors come to life with almost a 3D effect as well as enhancing water reflections and other surfaces.
Try printing your black and white images on this surface - you will not believe what you can achieve in the tonal highlights and greys. And, if you print HDR images on this surface, you have just taken your print output to another level altogether! We have many customers already reporting winning prestigious print awards because the paper is so different to anything else the judges have ever seen!
PermaJet Photo Lustre 310 is a multi award-winning paper, complementing an already impressive range of digital photo inkjet papers!
Professional Imagemaker Photo Lustre 310 Report
Photography News review
With its luxurious, beautiful lustre surface texture and a heavy base weight of 310gsm, Photo Lustre stands proudly above its rivals. Within moments of handling this heavy media, one is able to appreciate its qualities and advantages over lesser weight papers. There is certainly no disputing it has a true photographic paper texture and finish.
Manufactured to be a very bright white base, this tough and relatively scratch-resistant media is a 100% instant dry, resin coated base and finished with a UV protective, microporous supercoat guaranteeing a high degree of water and fade resistance.
Deep saturated colours and monochrome tones appear through the lustrous surface whether you use dye or pigment based inks. A super media choice for any photographer printer, graphic artist or photo print lab!
