PermaJet Enhance their Range of Fibre Based Papers with the Latest Inkjet Technology.

Ten years after introducing their incredibly popular Fibre Based range to industry success, PermaJet has adopted new technology to enhance the range for exceptionally high quality prints produced with modern printers and inks.


Following an eighteen month period of thorough market research, customer feedback and product development, PermaJet have refined their Fibre Based papers to ensure they meet your current and future printing needs.

The new Fibre Based range comprises three enhanced products, which join the classic FB Gold Silk 315gsm and FB Matt 285gsm.

Utilizing new, multi-layer technology, coating processes and enhanced alpha cellulose base materials, PermaJet have created a range of lay flat Baryta products that feed through your printers with ease. The enhanced coating, combined with modern ink technology ensures you get some of the highest Dmax ratings in the World today. These iconic photographic papers have evolved into a truly show stopping collection which are now available in advanced 15 metre length rolls and all sheet formats.


PermaJet have launched an exclusive NEW 10 SHEET BOX across this upgraded Fibre Based range which provides incredible value for those working on smaller print runs that are after the same exhibition quality product.

FB Distinction 320gsm

A4 to A2 cut sheets and 17'', 24'' and 44'' 15 metre rolls.

The FB Distinction 320 maintains the unique characteristics of the previous version but uses new, advanced top and rear coating technology to deliver a flat surface for printer friendly loading.

The enhanced, bright white, acid free Baryta base offers exceptional reproduction qualities. The superior coating enables modern printer inks to achieve the highest Dmax rating in the World, therefore delivering the widest tonal range.

Prices start at just £12.46 ex. VAT

FB Royal Gloss 310gsm
A4 to A2 cut sheets and 17'', 24'', 44'' and 60'' 15 metre rolls.

PermaJets New FB Royal Gloss is an amalgamation of the most popular characteristics and features of FB Gloss and FB Royal. The enhanced coating has been placed on a new 310gsm base, delivering a flatter product for easy printer loading. It has a beautiful, natural white, acid-free base with the same subtle undulations in the paper base itself. Improved multi-layer technology delivers the highest colour gamut achievable with pigment inks which delivers an exceptionally high D-Max rating which enhances both colour and monochrome reproductions. Its consistent gloss surface and heavyweight base offers a true similarity to a traditional glazed fibre based print.

The impressive alpha cellulose base is acid and lignin free and offers enhanced protection from changing ozone effects through the fade resisting internal buffers.

Users of the previous versions will certainly be impressed with the new FB Royal Gloss 310 as the upgrades being applied will have little effect, if any, on the current ICC Profile being used. Mike McNamee of Colour Audit and Editor of Professional Image Maker Magazine measured the LAB variance of the base material at 0.61, which is virtually undetectable to the naked eye. This means current users will be hard pushed to see any change whatsoever whilst achieving a greater archival stability. PermaJet, being the purveyors of print perfection, are still happy to produce new custom profiles free of charge for anyone who feels it necessary.

FB Satin 310gsm
A4 to A2 cut sheets and 17'', 24'', 44'' and 60'' 15 metre rolls.

The FB Satin 310 is a fantastic new addition to the PermaJet Baryta range. This long overdue introduction combines the best features of the popular FB Gloss and Royal with a sumptuous satin finish which emulates an un-glazed/air dried fibre based print. The subtle undulations throughout the paper base, combined with the new coating technology allows for detailed ink retention across a wide tonal range for a unique character.

This new media incorporates our superior coating with a unique satin top layer delivering pin sharp results. The alpha cellulose base is acid and lignin free and is internally buffered to enhance fade resistance from changing ozone effects. The coating provides an exceptional D-Max and colour gamut with pigment inks, making it ideal for both colour and monochrome reproductions.

Prices start at just £11.63 ex. VAT

FB Gold Silk 315gsm
A4 to A2 cut sheets and 24'' and 44'' 15 metre rolls.

The popular FB Gold Silk became a fast moving line when launched in 2014. Its sumptuous silk finish on a fine art heavyweight base of 315gsm makes it the industries favourite professional quality inkjet media. It has been developed with a naturally warm base tint to emulate the surface finish, texture and coating of traditional silver halide double weighted paper.

A true barium sulphate layer has been meticulously applied to the traditional fibre base, enabling users of FB Gold Silk 315 to create intense, rich blacks and creamy whites - the perfect combination for outstanding portrait and landscape reproductions in both monochrome and colour.

''The FB Gold Silk has to be one of my favourite Baryta papers to date. It feeds through printers seamlessly and provides incredible print results'', Bob Moore Hon. FRPS, former President Royal Photographic Society.

Prices start at just £11.63 ex. VAT

FB Matt 285gsm
A4 to A2 cut sheets and 17'', 24'', 44'' and 60'' 15 metre rolls.

The FB Matt 285 is the bedrock of the PermaJet Fibre Based range with an ultra smooth 285gsm, acid-free fibre base and an advanced matt coating. This sumptuous, natural white paper has a velvet soft feel and appearance whilst retaining crisp rigidity and lay flat production values generated by our advanced coating technology.

Its high colour gamut and unique, low level metamerism index combine to enhance the look and feel of both full colour and monochrome images.

Prices start at just £10.79 ex. VAT
