A couple of months ago, Kodak announced a plan to discontinue their popular Metallic Photographic Paper. Kodak based its decision on the high material cost of the unique elements used to manufacture the paper.
In November 2022, we will launch Fuji Crystal Archive Pearl in addition to our Lustre paper. After a year of extensive research and testing, we will offer Fuji Crystal Archive Pearl because it is a silver halide paper type that will live up to our quality standard.
The Fuji Crystal Archive Pearl is a glossy paper featuring a wide tonal range, sharper text quality, and a distinctive pearl-like appearance. It is a specialty paper best used with landscapes and showcases the mist in water movement or truly funky/vibrant images.
