I am having a black and white digital landscape photo printed to frame and hang on the wall and one of the options on offer is 'metallic paper'. What is it and would it be appropriate in this instance?
It is like normal paper, except that instead of just paper or plastic backing, it has a sheet of Mylar between the paper and the emulsion.
It is high gloss, and high contrast, abolutely ROCKS black and white prints. Really gives them a lot of depth when they have a good strong light source.
