Choosing the right inkjet paper makes all the difference for your printed photographs. This is because a sufficient and even porosity is essential for preventing ink spreading. With ordinary paper, moisture will simply spread through the fibres and cause smudging.

You’ll find your pictures also lack pigment intensity. Standard paper also isn’t white enough for photographs, which means a poor colour gamut. In other words, lack lustre results all round.

Specially designed for inkjet printers, inkjet papers offer good dimensional stability and excellent surface strength. They are also an extremely bright white, due to bleaching or other substances. This means that colours simply leap off the paper.

Fotospeed is a brand trusted from the darkroom to the world of digital photography. Their inkjet papers are counted among the best in the world, particularly their Fine Art Platinum Lustre papers.
