Introducing Fuji's 'Velvet' C Type paper - a pure matt print


We are delighted to be one of the few professional labs who now offer Fuji's new C Type matt paper - with zero reflection!


At Metro, we are always on the lookout for innovative new ways of printing, this attitude has kept us at the forefront of professional photographic printing for over 35 years. We are now thrilled to announce that we are one of the few labs in the UK to offer Fuji's new C Type paper: Velvet

If you want a pure matt print on a true photographic C Type paper, then Fuji's 'velvet' is for you. This paper has a wonderfully creamy texture, which is perfect for both black and white and colour images. Ideal for photographers who want a non-reflective print that can be mounted, sealed and framed, with long lasting durability.

It's a silver halide colour paper, specially designed to produce fine art prints. It has a unique smooth deep-matte surface design. The Velvet surface includes a fingerprint protection layer which makes the handling of the produced fine art images much easier.

A particular characteristic of the surface of Velvet paper is the way it can diffuse light remarkably well even under high lighting conditions so that the light reflection is kept to the bare minimum. It shares the same features as Crystal Archive DP-II with pure whiteness, long term image stability and accurate colour reproduction.
