Ilford Galerie Smooth Paper is a premium microceramic RC paper designed to provide instant dry images with a real photo look and finish, from today's range of photo-dedicated desktop inkjet printers. Ilford Galerie Smooth Papers feature a microceramic receiving layer designed for both dye- and pigment-based inks. The microceramic layer immediately draws the ink below the surface, enabling the prints to be instantly dry.
  • Smooth pearl surface
  • Instant dry (nanoporous)
  • Superb photographic image quality and consistency
  • Heavyweight look and feel of a real photograph
  • Exellent compatibility with all good quality pigment and dye based inkjet printers
Printer Compatibility: - All photo quality dye- and pigment-based desktop inkjet printers from Epson, Hewlett Packard, Canon, Lexmark and other leading brands. For optimum print life, Galerie Smooth papers are recommended for use with pigmentbased printers. If you have a dye-based printer, but prefer the look, feel and instant dry properties of Galerie Smooth papers, it is recommended to laminate, sleeve or frame the prints behind glass to maximize print life.* For most dye users, Galerie Classic papers are a better choice since they offer greater print longevity.

What Type of Ink Are You Using? Your desktop inkjet printer uses either dye-based or pigment-based inks. This is important to know in determining paper compatibility. The vast majority of photo-quality desktop inkjet printers use dye-based inks. For your reference, here is a list of the few pigment-based printer models currently available: Epson C70, C80, C82, Epson Stylus Photo 2000P, Epson Stylus Photo 2100 and Stylus Photo 2200. So unless you have one of these printer models, you?ve got a dye-based printer.

Microceramic coating technology: - The advanced microceramic technology used in the coating of the Smooth Gloss and Smooth Pearl papers creates the instant dry effect. As with all microceramic coated media, when used with dye-based inks, a certain amount of fading can be seen after a relatively short period of time. This potential phenomenon known as gas fading is a result of airborne contaminants that may chemically react with the dye inks that are sitting beneath the surface of the paper in the pores of the receiver layer. This potential chemical reaction, which is completely unrelated to light conditions as it can occur in complete darkness, may cause the image to fade. Smooth Gloss and Smooth Pearl papers are comparable with the other leading microceramic papers on the market, in this respect. To minimize this effect and promote greater image longevity of dye-based prints on Smooth Gloss and Smooth Pearl papers, it is advisable to laminate or frame them behind glass.

Comments about Ilford Ilford Galerie Professional Inkjet Photo Range Printer Paper Smooth Pearl, 13x19 (25-pack):

I recently switched to a larger format Canon 9000 pro printer. I was quite surprised of the image quality I got with the Ilford Smooth Pearl paper. The sharpness of the printed image is fantastic. Colors were very vibrant. My B/Ws have great contrasts and very black blacks.

I've been using Ilford paper since I was developing from film. I'll continue using Ilford paper as long as they keep producing quality products like this.
