      Comments about Inkpress Media Metallic Photo Paper (255 gsm, 8.5 x 11", Letter, 50 Sheets):

      Works well for both B&W and color, but really excels with certain types of pictures. You have to try it out and see where it works best and where it isn't a benefit, but it is fun to mess around with.

      I used this to print out portraits and B&W cityscapes. I was pleasantly surprised with the B&W on metallic results. Super contrast with a shimmering effect that makes the photo almost look 3D. I am very pleased and will continue to use this item.

          I have printed some color and some black and white prints on this with my epson artisan 725 arctic white printer. The paper gives the black and white prints a unique dimension to it when the light hits it. I have left it on the desk and let the sun hit it and it brings your attention to the photograph in the room because it reflects the light a little. You also have to make sure you lighten up the print just a little bit because the print is going to print a little bit darker then when you print on glossy white paper just a note to remember for reference. No Cons right now so far the paper does what it says it does gives you a metallic look. I'll be buying this again when I run low.

                I called about photo paper and one of your fine salepersons suggested a few papers for me to try, for autos,flowers,and for other images. The paper I am reviewing now, makes images pop with such unbelieveable realism that I plan to use it more often not just for images of cars,for landscapes, and anything that I need to really pop.I'm going to keep expereimenting with it, to see what images itworks the best with. I really like this photo paper very much, and would highly recomend this to everyone who wants enhance their images.

                  Most of my photographs are landscape photos with hills, mts, and especially water. This paper makes the scenes come alive and look slightly 3D. Big golden rocks (like you see at the Pacific coast) especially stand out more than regular photo paper. Suggestion - add a tad more brightness to the image before printing it.

                      I bought some of this paper in hopes of duplicating the effect that I have seen on some pictures printed on Kodak endura metallic paper. The kodak paper is only available on rolls or I would have justed used Kodak. To my surprise this paper not only gave me the effect that I was looking for, but maybe even better than what I saw with the Kodak paper (keeping in mind that this comparison is two completely different pictures. This is a "specialty" paper and it may not be right for all photos, some people may not like this effect at all. However, if it is a metallic effect that you are looking for, this may be just right for you.

                      If you are looking for a "Metallic" special effects type paper then this could be your dream paper. I tried it with a Black & White image and a couple of color images. The B&W turned out cool with the white / bright parts of the image gleaming with metallic sheen making this a good paper for creating special images. The color prints turned out less spectacular, reminding me of some very cheap paper I had tried years ago. In other words I will not use this paper for any more color images. But for B&W use it will be one of my favorites and for that it gets four stars. If I only did color work it would rate at about two...
