Smooth Gloss Finish

The Prestige Smooth Gloss 310gsm paper features a smooth gloss finish that is designed specifically for professionals who want good image quality in printed photos. The “bright white” tint of the gloss finish results in superior quality images with excellent colour reproduction.

Compatible with Desktop and Wide Format Printers

The A3 size Smooth Gloss 310gsm paper can be used with many top of the line wide format inkjet printer systems and even desktop models giving professionals photographers a variety of options when it comes to printing. For complete creative control the paper is compatible with variety of aqueous dye and pigment inks that can be employed to produce an outstanding colour gamut.

HDR Coating

The prestige gloss is created with a HDR (High Dynamic Range) coating and an advanced resin inkjet receiving layer that gives printed photos impressive clarity and sharpness.

Instant Drying

Due to the surface of the Ilford Smooth Gloss 310gsm being nanoporous, the ink on it dries almost instantly and is touch dry straight from the printer.

ILFORD GALERIE Smooth Gloss Paper — like all unprotected nanoporous “instant dry” media — is sensitive to environmental pollutants, an effect often referred to as “gas fading”. “Gas fading” occurs with or without the media being exposed to light. Environmental humidity and air circulation play an important role in the “gas fading” issue. In a protected display, laminated or under glass, indoors and away from direct sunlight, life expectancy of up to 10 years can be expected with both the gloss and the pearl papers, depending on the ink used.

To archive this type of media, it should be stored in files and not open to well ventilated environments. In ventilated environments even in the dark “gas fading” can still occur.

The life expectancy of all inkjet media is influenced by humidity, light and the ink being used. At higher light levels or humidity, one should expect a shorter life expectancy than at low light level or humidity. Some inkjet printer inks also offer poor stability when compared with others. When storing and handling prints at the extremes of the environmental range (<10 % r.h. and > 70 %), performance and permanence may be reduced.
