Metallic Photo RC 255gsm – Has to be seen to be believed!
This paper will give your images a remarkable dazzling look. It’s a high gloss media with a unique metallic pearlescent finish. Choose the right images and it will really make them sing like no other paper – with a highly three dimensional look. This paper is ideally suited for light pastel colours and skin tones and will display extra depth when placed under tungsten spotlights. The base colour (white) has a light silvery sheen but not as shiny as silver/chrome/metal. This stock has its greatest success in the wedding and portrait market. This 100% virgin fibre media is sourced from sustainable forests and has received the Nordic Swan Award for the most demanding ecological mark in international paper.

Questions about Metallic Photo RC 255gsm Prints
Can you resize my image?Rob Bryant2021-06-08T17:32:09+10:00
As long as your file has enough resolution and is in proportion to the size you have ordered our RIP (Raster Interpolation Process) will scale your file to the size you have ordered. There is no need to set up your file in Photoshop to a specific size.
How do I know my image/file is high enough quality?Rob Bryant2021-06-08T17:32:43+10:00
On our help page you can check the requirements for any given size. Enter your image pixel dimensions and required print size and the calculator will tell you if it works or suggest a different size. Alternatively, enlarge your image on screen to the size you want it printed to get an approximate idea of resolution and quality.
How can I avoid my image printing too dark compared to my screen?Rob Bryant2021-02-02T12:53:05+11:00
There are a number of things that you can do to prevent this happening even when working with an uncalibrated screen. First, lower the brightness of your screen so that brightest part of your screen (white) has the same level of brightness as a white piece of paper. Once you have done this have a look at your image on a white, grey and black background. Reduce the image size on screen and review the image at a matchbox size (app 30x 40 mm ). Now adjust your image until you are happy with it whilst viewing it in each of the above scenarios and be assured that your printed result will not be too dark.
Can I have borders on my prints?Rob Bryant2021-06-08T17:35:26+10:00
We mainly print from print-ready artworks so if you require borders, please include them within your artwork. If you require extra white material outside your ordered size you can add this in the checkout. The options are 10mm/25mm/50mm additional white media outside your image. so if you want borders please include them within your artwork.
How do I set up my file?Rob Bryant2021-01-25T12:25:28+11:00
In general 72 dpi (or above) at final print size will give you a good quality images. Text or logos should preferably be as vector files or minimum 100 dpi. You can learn more on our help page here. On this page you can also check that your image is the right proportions for the size you want to order.

How to frame your art
Both the colour and shape of a frame are distinctive features that will enhance and complement your art. Spend the time to find the right one and there are inexpensive solutions.
What is the image focal point?
Full-bleed framing (the image sits edge to edge) is great for any print with a lot of negative (or empty) space. Adding an extra border (or Matt) around your photo can draw the eye towards the centre. The width of the border can be determined by balancing the space between the frame and image.
What’s the decor style of the room?
Choose from Rustic to Modern frame shapes and style to compliment the image and room and match the colour with one in your image or with your decor.
