LexJet 8 Mil Production Gloss Photo Paper


Quick Links: Product Highlights | Product Properties | Item Details

LexJet's next-generation 8 Mil Production Gloss 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 inkjets. 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 Gloss Photo Paper features an improved white point for greater contrast and a wider color gamut. Plus, 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 gloss finish provides a wider color gamut for sharper details.

LexJet 8 Mil Production Gloss 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.
