The Great Paper Chase Permajet FB Mono Gloss Baryta 320 - part 5 of 1 2 3 4 5 6

by Mike McNamee Published 01/04/2017


A proof of our featured shot this month required very high detail retention because of the importance of the text in the image to the narrative. It was exceptionally crisp. The depth of the blue in the sky also stood out and the red tie was just as we had planned it. Overall the print had tons of sparkle.

For all practical purposes the statistics can be considered flawless and the paper could be used for really high-quality colour work. Indeed if (unusually) you wished to present a qualification panel in mixed mono and colour (it has been done now and again) then the use of this one paper would produce an even gloss and polish across the panel with no compromises needed.


The high gamut volume has pushed the saturated HiGAM patch set right out onto the aim values. In the lower graph the weighted saturation errors (dCí/w) are the lowest of the set.

This paper has just the right amount of everything. The OBA levels are enough to produce a bright, sparky print with plenty of ‘pop’ but without depressing the reds and compromising the skin tones. The monochrome performance ticks all the boxes with low metamerism and high Dmax. The prints themselves have a suitably luxurious weight and stiffness to them – looks like PermaJet have come up with a winner here!
