Okay, we have to admit that we’re not really fans of metallic media – it comes from being spoilt by having Cibachrome to print on for so many years. This media is as close to Cibachrome as we’ve seen. It gives an image depth, beautiful saturation, and no real Bronzing. After printing the Quattro Challenge exhibition on the Ilford Metallic Gloss, with all the different tonal ranges and colours, almost every image benefited from being printed on this new media. It’s no Cibachrome, but it sure comes close! Come in and check out the print samples for yourself.
