What Paper should I use?

Ilford Gold Fibre Silk - Lustre

Ilford's Gold Fibre Silk is our go-to paper for those people wanting to print in colour, it offers a beautiful finish that has a slight sheen to it but not as reflective as glossy paper. Gold Fibre Silk has an inkjet layer which sits directly on top of a true baryta (barium sulphate) fibre base to produce images with vivid colour reproduction as well as textured whites and deep blacks. The paper is often mistaken for the unique look of traditional silver halide photo paper.


Hahnemule Photo Rag - Matt

Hahnemule Photo Rag is a popular paper for those that want their images to have a textured fine art feel. The fine quality of paper with the Photo Rag feel makes this paper very versatile. It's ideal for printing both colour and black and white. We would recommend those photographers shooting in Black and White to try this paper, it offers a tonal range that is second to none.
