Inkjet Media Rolls
Whether your application calls for a quick color graphic for use in a planning or design meeting – or a photographic print on 100% cotton canvas to be displayed in a museum for 30 years, rely on MtM products and guidance to create the perfect print combination. See below for details of the water-based ink jet paper product categories available from MtM.
Photographic Base Papers
Photobase papers are traditional resin-coated base stocks with gloss, satin, luster and pearl surfaces – designed to replicate a true photographic print appearance.
Photographic base stocks offer the highest ink absorption capacity, producing superior image quality, ink densities and vibrancy nearing those of true photographic process prints.
Due to the wide selection of surfaces as well as thicknesses from 7 mil to 12 mil, photographic papers offer ink jet users many finished print application opportunities.
Luster and Pearl Finishes
Luster and Pearl finish is the most popular surface options for photographic prints such as portraiture and wedding portfolios.
Gloss and Satin Surface Finishes
Gloss and satin surface finishes are those most often selected for commercial print and display applications.
These papers are used in virtually every industry segment and are often desired for home and small office users as well. Our photographic papers offer users additional benefits including:
- Brilliant color reproduction
- Higher glossiness and flatness without any surface cracking
- Instant dry
- Superior whiteness
- Water-resistant and smudge-proof surfaces
Photographic Base Paper can be found in our eCatalog on page 40.
High Resolution Coated Bond Paper for Wide Format Inkjet Rolls
All high resolution matte bond papers feature a top surface coating to capture the ink fired from the print heads and control the dot spread onto the paper surface.
When done correctly, prints created on these papers can be quite outstanding! The key is to match a paper’s weight and thickness to the amount of ink coverage required for the finished print.
Our coated bonds stretch from the lightest 24 lb. basis weight color bond for line work and low-resolution imaging, up to a 10.5 mil, 230 gram paper for premium image production.
All of our bonds feature a water resistant top coating to eliminate smudging due to handling, and are compatible with all types of water-based inks from equipment brands including:
Use bond papers for quick, low-cost design graphics, short term posters and directional signage, photographic enlargements that can be finished with lamination and imposition proofing.

Banner and Fabric Material for Wide Format Inkjet Rolls
Banner displays represent one of the more popular applications for wide format ink jet equipment.
MtM’s selection of tear and water-resistant vinyls, polypropylenes and polyester fabrics allows for a choice of products to match the method of display.
We are happy to recommend the best choices to meet your required duration and durability to the environment where the graphic will be displayed.
While our traditional scrim banner vinyl offers high opacity and extreme durability for long term display, our polyester fabric options provide a lighter, “soft-signage” approach – offering a richer, more natural look to a variety of both indoor and outdoor applications. This is particularly true in comparison to vinyl which has a more plastic and artificial appearance.
Our banner materials cover the spectrum in thickness from lightweight to heavyweight – however all can be sewn, grommetted and taped – to allow for any type hanging need required.
Fine Art Canvas Material for Wide Format Inkjet Rolls
Canvas provides a wonderful medium for those looking to enhance their office decor, home or workspace with fine art, giclee, and photographic quality prints.
Canvas offers the same elegant appearance as an original oil or watercolor painting, and the special coating allows for further “artist embellishment” with the addition of the artist’s own unique brushstrokes on the inkjet canvas print. The quality of these reproductions is sure to give anybody the prestige and satisfaction of a serious fine art collector.
Canvas inkjet art prints do not need to be framed with glass to look amazing! They can also be stretched around gallery wraps, which makes for a great canvas display. Canvas prints are also substantially more durable than conventional paper prints, and last for many years without any color shift. Applications for our canvas options include:
- Backdrops and murals
- Fine art reproduction
- Graduation and retirement photos
- Hotel and commercial office decor
- Indoor signage
- Interpretive exhibits
- Museum prints
- Personalized gift for friends and family
- Student photos and portraiture
- Studio photography and prints
