Fotospeed are pleased to release the closest equivalent on the market along with like-for-like pricing to help all existing Ilford customers make the transition from the now discontinued Ilford Galerie Smooth Pearl 290.

Fotospeed PhotoSmooth Pearl 290 is a natural white, heavyweight and instant dry, resin coated, inkjet paper. The beautiful pearl finish & white point matches that of the widely acclaimed, and now discontinued, Ilford Galerie Smooth Pearl paper; a crisp finish with a superb colour gamut.

It has a unique ink receiving layer giving an instant dry result straight from the printer. Compatible with both Dye and Pigment ink.

Added to this, the paper has been developed to ensure that existing Ilford profiles work seamlessly. There are now only limited stocks of the Ilford Galerie range of papers which will shortly run out.

Fotospeed PhotoSmooth Pearl 290 Features:
  • Natural white finish
  • Professional Pearl surface
  • HDR precision coated
  • Heavy-weight look and feel
  • Available in Sheets & Rolls
  • Instant dry
  • Pigment and Dye ink compatible
  • Excellent colour gamut for colour photography
  • Exceptional D-max 
Pricing starts from £9.99. For more information, take a look at the Fotospeed website

This paper is exactly the same as the New Permajet Smooth Pearl 280gsm...
Now to surprise you...The 7dayshop A4 Satin 270gsm is the same paper. 10 photographers from pro to Enthusiast in camera clubs could not see any difference between them.
I tried them and showed the prints to them. I used the icc profile of Permajets on all three, with Semi-gloss chosen in the print section of PSCS5. Maybe someone with Excellent eyes might spot a subtle difference. Try for yourselves. I'll be buying 7dayshops paper and save loads of cash. A Great Pity that 7day stopped selling the A3 a long while ago.
