Four Inkjet Papers and Films:

AgfaJet Glossy Photo Inkjet Paper is double-sided material, giving the user the option of a glossy or satin finish. Photographically coated, this paper is ideal for outputting color photographs. The neutral color and high gloss finish of the paper ensures the reproduction of images with deep, brilliant colors.

AgfaJet PhotoPrint Paper is a genuine photo-quality product–right down to the Agfa logo printed on the back. Ideal for outputting color photographs for invitations or birthday cards, as well as color pages in presentations, PhotoPrint has the same weight and feel as traditional Agfa photographic prints. Similar to the Glossy Photo Inkjet paper, the neutral color and high gloss finish helps produce images with a true photo look – great sharpness with accurate reproduction of colors. PhotoPrint paper is available in two sizes; 4″ X 6″ and 5.85″ X 14″. Currently, PhotoPrint paper is the only inkjet material available in a panoramic format (5.85″ X 14″).

Perfect for reports, presentations and desktop publishing, AgfaJet Premium Quality Inkjet Paper is designed for small and home office use. Packaged in two sizes (8.5″ X 11″ and 11″ X 17″) in cost-effective quantities, the Premium Quality paper holds sharp, brilliant colors. In addition, the paper is printable on both sides. The front is coated, while the back has a matte finish–appropriate for labels or descriptions.

Users can easily create postcards and photo albums with this double-sided paper. Ideal for overhead cells, report covers or similar transparent applications, AgfaJet Transparency Inkjet Film offers superior bleed control and excellent image quality. In addition, Agfa has incorporated a paper stripe so the film will work on all printers with optical page check.
