Red River rep was in the camera store the other day and suggested that dye inks work better with their metallic than pigments right now. They are working on one that will work well with pigments. Should be out soon. some other brands may already have them, I just do not know about them.

Thanks for that info re RR Metallic.

I was going to order a 100' roll of it after getting some fantastic results with several large test prints from a 3880. Your post prompted me to call RR tech and ask. They told me their metallic paper prints worked well on both pigment and dye printers and wouldn't say which produced the best results. They also denied that they are working on an improved variety designed specifically for pigment inks. At this point, I'm going to wait and see a little longer before committing to a roll of the stuff, since the RR rep that you spoke of may have it right.
