    I came across a couple partial packs of Luminos Metallic Silver paper among some other stuff I bought on Craig's List not long ago. Probably at least 20 years old. Now it's all gone. Is this kind of paper still produced anywhere?

    I have a couple prints that were worth duplicating and had to resort to scanning and laser printing on metallic silver inkjet paper that I got at office depot, but it's not quite the same...

    Remember this came in silver and gold base as well. There were color bases too, probably from a different manufacturer. Almost certain that this printing paper is long gone.

    RA-4 metallic paper was a very cool paper. Printed many photos on it back in the day. It's all gone now and RA-4 paper that is 20 years old will yield a gray base, no white and thus will have muted color tones.
    Also my lab does not offer metallic ink jet prints cause they are terrible compared to the RA-4 stuff.
