What we do

Custom Inkjet Printing on Just The Right Paper Surface. 

One of the advantages of a lab like Silver Mountain Images is your choice of paper surfaces. If you are familiar only with the big box stores photo lab you may think that there are only one or two papers available. With a custom lab like ours, we can offer a wide variety of paper surfaces to highlight your photograph. One photo may require a high gloss like Polar Gloss Metallic to bring out its brilliance, another may lend itself to a flat matt surface Like Polar Matt.  Each image is different and we can help you with that selection.

We use papers from one of the premier inkjet papers suppliers, Red River papers out of Texas. Their consistent quality and variety allow us to produce beautiful prints time after time.

We make it simple: all paper surfaces are the same price.
