Do you know there how many types about inkjet photo paper? Some paper makes your pictures bright and lively,

① Cast coated photo paper

Constituent: Cast Coated base paper + Micro SiO₂/AlO₂coating.

Feature: water-proof , suitable for dye ink (if you want to use pigment ink , you’d better test the sample before). High

brightness. Dry fast .

Note: A. Cast coated photo paper can’t be used on laser printers .because the coating is easy to fall off under high

temperature. It will influence the printing result and cause extremely damage the printer. But there are some low

temperature laser printers in the market. Such as FUJI Xerox .OKI laser printer that could print with cast coated photo

paper. We do not suggest you use laser printers. This kind of paper is a basic for photo printing, if the photo not so

important, and become useless soon, you can choose cast coated photo paper, this help to save money.

resistance than dye ink, this could remedy the limitation that RC paper is easy to be affected by air pollution such as

waterproof and can be held for longtime.
