For the past year I've been sending digital images to my pro photo lab to have printed on Kodak metallic paper using a Lamda. The resulting prints have metallic undertones and a subtle shimmer giving the prints a 3D quality. The process is expecially nice if you've got lots of shiney things (like silversides or sweeers), high contrast, or want to print in black and white.

I'm looking now for a similar paper that is not photo-sensitive and can be used with an ink jet printer so I can print them myself. Anybody know if this exists and where one might be able to get it?

http://www.mcgpaper.com/index.html has some metallic inkjet paper in their inkjet photo paper section. Don't know if it is what you are looking for or not.

http://www.pictorico.com has a variety of papers I use extensively, but I don't think they have what you are looking for (although they are well worth a look for their canvas and white gloss papers)

http://www.papilio.com/ have a variety of stuff. Some good, some bad, some unusual.

http://www.redriverc...tour/silver.htm might be what you are looking for

http://www.acecam.co...kjet-paper.html might be worth a look....

That should get you going anyway. Hope it helps.
