ILFORD GALERIE Smooth Gloss Paper is a premium nano technology coated RC paper designed to provide instant dry images with a real photo look and finish from today's range of photo dedicated inkjet printers.
GALERIE Smooth Gloss Paper features the very latest HDR ( High Dynamic Range ) optically clear nanoporous coating for outstanding imaging performance coupled with the benefit of 'touch dry' from the printer.
The high density heavyweight base has a natural photographic white tint to produce prints with an excellent colour gamut and high sharpness. The gloss surface looks and feels like a true photographic print. It is compatible with all high quality dye and pigment based inkjet printers.

For optimum image stability use with pigment based inks.
ILFORD GALERIE Smooth Gloss Paper - like all unprotected nanoporous "instant dry" media - is sensitive to environmental pollutants an effect often referred to as "gas fading". "Gas fading" occurs with or without the media being exposed to light. Environmental humidity and air circulation play an important role in the "gas fading" issue. In a protected display laminated or under glass indoors and away from direct sunlight life expectancy of up to 10 years can be expected with both the gloss and the pearl papers depending on the ink used.
To archive this type of media it should be stored in files and not open to well ventilated environments. In ventilated environments even in the dark "gas fading" can still occur.
The life expectancy of all inkjet media is influenced by humidity light and the ink being used. At higher light levels or humidity one should expect a shorter life expectancy than at low light level or humidity. Some inkjet printer inks also offer poor stability when compared with others. When storing and handling prints at the extremes of the environmental range ( <10 % r.h. and > 70 % ) performance and permanence may be reduced.
