Bumblejax offers a few paper types to choose from. If you are choosing to have us mount your photos to any of our substrates (acrylic, aluminum, birch, bamboo, dibond or gatorfoam), your choice is our Lexjet Sunset Metallic paper (popular) or the Mitsubishi Diamondjet Satin which is great for softer photos. If you're looking for a print to frame, then our fine art giclee papers may be a great choice for you.
Fine Art Giclee Prints
+ hahnemuhle german etching paper (matte, some texture)
+ lexjet hot press rag paper (matte, smoother)
+ lexjet sunset metallic (more glossy, vibrant)
+ hahnemuhle photo silk baryta (premium satin)
+ mitsubishi diamondjet (house satin)
TIP: Do you like a matte paper, satin or a gloss paper? If you like a more glossy, vibrant paper then the metallic paper will be your best bet. The Photo Silk Baryta is more of a satin paper but it's heavy weight and it it has a higher color gamut over our house satin paper (Mitsubishi). For a softer matte look, we have two outstanding fine art papers in the German Etching (bit of texture) and the Lexjet Hot Press Rag (smoother).
