  1. PPD A3 Satin Photo Paper Pearl Premium 280g
    Great Product PPD A3 Satin 280g
    Received well packaged and fairly quickly by a friendly driver.
    The paper itself is first class. Used with my Canon printer and inks it prints truly with vibrant colours and an excelent finish.
    The thickness is just right too, It feeds easily into my printer but is thick enough to both feel good and fit easily into a frame. I will but it again.

  2. PPD A3 Satin Photo Paper Pearl Premium 280g
    Very Happy to be purchasing from PPD again
    As a lifelong enthusiastic photographer, I have previously purchased all my photo print paper requirements from PPD upto size A4. Having just purchased my first ever A3 printer (Canon TS9550) - I chose the Satin Pearl Premium 280gms for my initial trials, using original Canon ink cartridges. Those who have seen the results describe them as "Superb"! "Stunning"! The paper gives a beautiful silky sheen with a wide palette of colours, all faihfully reproduced, and showing great detail but without the full-on 'glare' of 'Gloss' finishes, and therefore ideal for framing. I live in the Scottish Highlands but delivery was very prompt and well packaged with corner stiffeners. Thank you for a great product and great service!

This is the Photo Paper Direct a3 satin photo paper pearl premium 280g.

Satin micro porous base super heavy weight for printing of high quality/resolution photo images. The paper allows you to obtain a very good colour gamut and due to its good light fastness will keep the image from fading for a long time. Instant drying with good water resistance. Paper dries instantly and it is resistant to water.

  • High quality prints and photos with reduced reflection in direct light

  • Fingerprint residue when held is significantly reduced thanks to the satin, pearl or lustre finish
