10 Inkjet Papers for Photographers

Photo Paper Direct is more than the name suggests. We aim to provide high-quality inkjet paper you can use as a professional photographer. We gathered some videos from our YouTube Channel and a brief overview of other inkjet printable papers for your perusal.

These papers are archival and acid free for longevity, just like genuine art paper. The twist is that these papers are designed to be printed on with an inkjet printer. Our specialty papers are instant dry with no smears and offer an easy feed. You can handle them straight off the printer.
