Selecting The Right Media

We offer a vast range of HP media for Large Format ranges, suitable for diverse applications. To help you decide which media is right for you, we’ll be highlighting a different material each month and discussing what media works best with which application.

Perfect Colours Photographic Media

Our photographic papers are one of the largest portfolios that we sell, covering a variety of needs. Our Everyday Instant-Dry stock, available in satin or gloss, is a recyclable paper with a micro-porous surface for maximum ink absorption, providing long-lasting colour at a cost-effective price.

For applications where image quality is paramount, the premium Matte paper allows for a flat, ripple-free photo-realistic finish that is both long-lasting and water-resistant without lamination. For print houses looking to provide incredible photographic reproduction with impeccable environmental credentials, we also have FSC-certified Universal Instant-Dry Gloss and Satin media that can handle both dye- and pigment-based inks.

For print shops using HP’s banner and outdoor printers, we have a photographic paper that will suit your needs. HP’s Backlit Polyester film provides the perfect stock for creating recyclable, high-impact photographic prints for outdoor applications.

All of our substrates are available in 100’ rolls in widths that range from 30“ to 60”. Have a look at our media locator app hereand see our wide portfolio of photographic papers for yourself.
