 That’s right, we have added a new paper to our Photo book Pro line; the Arctic Matte.

And, let us be the first to tell you: it’s as cool as, well, an Arctic breeze. Why is that?

Arctic Matte is designed specifically for HP Indigo printers – which is the printer we use for our Photo book Pro series (HP Indigo 12000 to be exact). Also, this paper type comes with high whiteness and excellent opacity.

What this means is, typically, papers will have a yellowish, almost-sepia like color base, yet, this Arctic Matte has a high white base color and opacity meaning it provides stunning results, particularly with contrasts – especially black and whites. 

Because of its high whiteness base the white and appears more pure and vivid and especially so when contrasted with black. 

Add to that, that matte finishes, in general, are excellent for black and white contrasts and it can be easy to understand how Arctic Matte takes things to a whole new level.

Another benefit of this paper type is an enhanced and smooth presentation of your images without glaring issues. Also, the finish provides an almost artistic, vintage, film-like appearance that can create a mood for any style of photograph. 

Finally, the Arctic Matte comes available in 170 gsm allowing for sturdy, yet flexible and resilient spreads that are sure to stand the test of time. 

But, don’t forget about our other paper options available for our Photo book Pro line. With this recent addition we now have available: Felix Scholler Luster (190 gsm), Mohawk Eggshell (148 gsm), Mohawk Eggshell (216 gsm), and, of course, Arctic Matte (170 gsm).
