PermaJet’s Oyster 271 paper stock has a subtle lustre finish and is claimed to be one of the whitest surfaced papers on the market today. It’s a resin-coated media, which brags Permajet’s advanced multi layer technology that features a UV protective microporous supercoating to give it a high degree of water and fade resistance.
Suitable for use with dye and pigment inks, as well as colour and black and white images, the paper works out slightly thinner than some of the other media in this six-pack group. It has a base weight of 271gsm and as with all pearl and lustre types of finish, the printing side is identified by moistening the edge of the paper. The printing side will appear slightly sticky when moisture is applied, but provided you keep the paper in the box as it’s supplied, you’ll know the printing side faces up out of the box. It’s offered in sizes from 6x4in to A2, with 30m rolls available too. A box of A3+ (25 sheets) costs £30, so each sheet is worth £1.20.
