Fine Art Is The New Metallic!
You may have noticed that our ordering solutions list some Metallic Photographic Print sizes as limited in supply. This is because Kodak has discontinued their Endura Metallic Paper. We've sourced every last sheet we can find, but supplies are dwindling quickly and we won’t be able to offer this silver halide option after it runs out.
Kodak Metallic Paper is distinguished by its high contrast, vibrance and silvery sheen, adding a dramatic depth to your images. Though we will miss it, it’s not the only paper that shines! Fine Art Metallic Prints offer a great alternative for those looking for a similar look and feel to Kodak Metallic Paper.
For those looking for an alternative in the photographic paper genre, Fuji Pearl shines similarly to Metallic. Although it is not a true apples-to-apples comparison, this silver halide paper displays a distinct pearl-like shimmer that you can see up close (especially in the mid-dark tones). Its glossy surface offers sharp detail and high intensity colors. Many photographers choose this paper for competition and display prints.
We will be removing sizes from our Photographic Prints catalog as they are no longer available on Kodak Metallic paper. We encourage you to order Dream Paper and Fine Art Paper Swatch Books to experience these Metallic surfaces firsthand, and our Photographic Paper Swatch Books include Fuji Pearl.
Images we think look stellar on Metallic:
Astrophotography for glistening stars
Landscapes (especially sunsets and sunrises) for popping colors
Architectural for high contrast
Sports portraits for high impact
Fine art style imagery (especially with glowing color gel effects)
B&W for a silvery effect
