Our range of Photographic Papers

Partial photo of a face covered in hundres and thousands printed on Fuji Crystal Archive Paper which is available in both gloss and a semi matt finish.

C-Type Matt/Gloss

Available in Classic Matt or Gloss, this Fuji paper uses optimised Silver Halide Crystals for laser exposure, producing excellent prints from laser printers; and it’s considered to be the industry standard for photographic art printing.

Photo of a young tattooed man printed on Velvet paper. While this paper is called velvet, the surface has an extremely flat matt surface, which should be noted before using it for pinting on.

C-Type Velvet Paper

This dead matt paper from Fuji  produces a creamy texture and muted tones. Its zero-reflective top layer creates a remarkably soft and flat matt effect, ideal for low-contrast images.

Photo of a mountain range printed on metallic paper. Metallic paper is available from both Fuji and Kodak and has a very high gloss finish and would be best framed using anti refelctive glass.

Metallic Paper

With a glossy finish and metallic appearance, this Fuji paper works well with both colour and B&W images, providing a different visual aspect to your work.

Photo of a city skyscraper looking up at the sky in the middle of the day. Supergloss paper, as noted by the name, has an ultra high glossy finish and is again best framed behind anti reflective glass.


Supergloss is a reflective silver halide colour printing paper from Fuji with a super high gloss PET base for professional use at the highest level, designed exclusively for digital output.
