Jessops Photo Paper Alternative

In January 2013, UK retailer Jessops online and retail stores have ceased trading and went into administration. For years Jessops was one of the biggest suppliers of photographic equipment and consumables from cameras to photo paper. It left many of its customers, amateur photographers as well as established businesses with a gaping hole. Many, small businesses in particular depend on various printing media as a lifeline and without it, they themselves are under potential threat.

When it comes to the world of photo paper, if you are looking for a Jessops alternative there is a comprehensive selection. For years Jessops catered for the professional market, which was visible by its range of professional papers in various sizes, finish and weight.

These paper often included the superior PE Microporous coating which offers better stability, flexibility and printer feedability in contrast to the cheaper cast coated base paper that budget brands use. Furthermore, its papers were compatible with dye and pigment inks, as well as most printer brands. Naturally an alternative photographic paper should cover all those aspects and more.

One alternative option is to source paper that is made by the printer manufacturer you use, ensuring that you pay attention to its weight (in gsm), type of receiving layer (cast coated vs. PE Microporous) and finish of choice. However, printer manufactures themselves do not produce paper. It is always made by external suppliers whose core business is coating technology. In most cases, going with a dedicated photo paper brand means better quality and better affordability.

In such case you cannot do better than Ilford.  Ilford has been associated with imaging since 1879. Its current focus on inkjet printing media, and strong links to the photographic markets provides a world leading range of true photo base papers (PE Microporous). These complement the best inkjet printers in the market today, producing spectacular printing results for both the professional and amateur.
