LexJet's next-generation 8 Mil Production Satin Photo Paper features an instant-dry, microporous inkjet coating that is ideal for faster-turnaround, higher-volume photo printing on a variety of makes and models of aqueous inkjet printers. Because the prints dry so quickly, they resist smudges and fingerprints during handling and don’t require a lot of extra drying time before laminating. The latest version of 8 Mil Production Satin Photo Paper features an improved white point for greater contrast and a wider color gamut. This paper can be used with either pressure-sensitive or low-heat thermal laminating films.
This photo paper provides the same great versatility as LexJet’s 8 Mil ImagePro photo paper at a price point that makes higher production runs more affordable.
The satin finish provides a more natural look to images that feature facial close-ups and minimizes the risk of glare on prints that will be displayed under bright lights.
LexJet 8 Mil Production Satin Photo Paper can be used on all types of aqueous inkjet printers, whether they use dye or pigment inks or thermal or piezo printheads, and is engineered for the latest inksets, including Canon Lucia, Epson UltraChrome K3 HDR and HP Vivera.
Universally compatible with all dye and pigment inks.

Satin Photo Finish
Compatible with all thermal and piezo inkjet printers using water-based dye and pigment-based inks.
Material is packaged with printable side facing up. Printable surface can be identified by a slight tackiness.
Pressure-sensitive vinyl laminates, like LexJet's GraphicsGuard with UV inhibitors, can be applied to increase the fade and abrasion resistance of the image. Before applying the laminate, allow the image to dry for 24 hours.
The fading time of inkjet ink is a direct result of the inks that you choose to use and the environment where the print is displayed. Contact the ink manufacturer for light-fastness data.
Optimal Print Environment
70° F (21° C), 50% R.H
Optimal Service Environment
For printing: 60° - 80° F, 50% Relative Humidity.
Due to the absorptive nature of the coating, you should avoid touching the coated surface. It's always recommended that cotton gloves be used when handling inkjet coated materials. Rolls of LexJet film are supplied with the coated side facing out.
Service Temp. Range
