Brilliant white photographic matt paper that enables amazing image vibrancy and tonal range in monochrome and colour images. The paper is pulp based with an instant dry coating. Compatible with dye and pigment inks.
My personal impression: Within the past week, I have received a letter from one of our customers who started using this superb matt inkjet paper, then changed to a slightly cheaper matt media, which he bought from an internet dealer. He started experiencing paper feed problems with his Epson desktop printer. The answer, he told me, was to get the platen rollers cleaned, then revert back to Lyson Pro Photo Matt – no more problems.
The issue with a high production proofing paper such as this is that you are likely to put a lot of paper through your printer – the coating must not only produce sharp clinical accuracy of colour and density, but must also not shed fine fibres or paper powder which may reduce the friction within the platen rollers of your inkjet printer, as demonstrated in our customer's letter.
Some Lyson customers buy huge quantities of this particular paper – one of our local high-volume users of Lyson Pro Photo Matt tells me that since using this paper, his printers 'behave themselves' – which actually means that they auto-feed with complete reliability..
High volume users also like the 100 sheet high volume box pack which gives them a really competitive price per proof sheet.
Short of a Fine Art Inkjet paper, the best Matt Inkjet paper I have used..
