C-TYPE PAPER FINISHES
Images are printed on Fuji and Kodak silver-halide papers. Besides the superior color reproduction these prints have excellent ozone resistance to ensure superior light fastness (resistance to fading). We offer the following c-type paper finishes:
C-Type LusterFuji Crystal Archive Paper / Kodak Endura Paper
Not quite matte and not quite glossy. Luster (also referred to as Satin) has excellent color saturation without the "sheen" that can be a hindrance in glossy print finishes.
C-Type MetallicKodak Endura Metallic Paper / Fuji Pearl (metallic)
Described by many photographers as a "chrome on paper" effect. Kodak metallic prints offer a rich, distinctive metallic (pearlescent/iridescent) look that catches the eye. It works especially well on high contrast images. Less contrasty images may need to be lightened about 20% for printing on this surface but for the right images it is one of our favorite papers.
