Agreed from this afternoon's tests.

Looks no different to the Breathing Color Vibrance Gloss at jolly nearly half the price.

What I found odd is that their three Vibrance papers (Metallic, Gloss, Lustre) are all far from white. Seemed odd to me to make a paper like Metallic and not give it a white base. I can add warmth in printing but can't remove it.


Proline's Luster Chrome (metallic) is warm in comparison to RR Polar Pearl Metallic - on the 3880. After talking with BC, it may be that the lower the amount of OBA the paper substrate contains, the warmer the whites appear.
