Product Description

The Ultimate in Photo Paper Quality

From the Manufacturer

Everything photo paper can possibly have for the artwork of professional and advanced amateur photographers Canon's new flagship glossy photo paper surpasses Photo Paper Pro [PR-101]. Similar to Photo Paper Plus Glossy II (PP-201), a six layer paper structure is used to promote color reproduction "Alumina" which proved quicker ink absorbency on Photo Paper Pro [PR -101] is adopted in the ink-receiving layers.


Advancing the texture and quality of Canon's new glossy photo paper
"Make the best photo paper in all aspects." This was our commitment when we were developing Photo Paper Pro [PR-101], which was Canon's previous flagship photo paper.
To further progress, we follow this commitment and have developed Canon's new flagship glossy photo paper. Ink-receiving layers are functionally separated into a color-reproduction layer and an absorbing layer, and a chromogenic enhancer which amplifies light is added into the resin-coat layer.
A neutral white which has a high degree of whiteness is adopted for the color of the paper.
The demanding photo quality needs of professional and advanced amateur photographer is realized when used with Canon's 2008 new dye-based inks [CLI-221]. The color reproduction in red areas is expanded, rich and deep blacks are achieved and the higher image durability is achieved. The best glossy photo paper which turns printouts to artwork. That is Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101].



For professional and advanced amateur photographers Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT- 101] exceeds Photo Paper Pro [PR-101] by using original material technology



Neutral bright white for maximum appeal to professional advanced amateur photographers

A new standard for white has been introduced
There are various "whites" for a white paper such as bluish white, yellowish white, dark white and bright white.
The "white" Canon chose for professional's and advanced amateur's artwork from these various "whites" is the "white" which combines "crispy white" and "neutral white".
"Crispy white" contributes to enhance the gamut volume. This provides more vivid color reproduction. And this vividness won't be unnatural thanks to the "neutral white". It will produce a natural color which dye itself produces.
There are scenes where the whiteness of Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101] will be utilized such as the gradation of a morning glow in which colors blend intricately, the transparency of a glass and the texture of metals. But it is on the human skin which is the most common but the most difficult to express that it will show the most obvious whiteness.


Ink absorption is speedy and dyes are fixed to a top layer in the paper. That is why images can be expressed beautifully and smoothly

Because of the Alumina, quick ink absorbency is achieved
The shape of alumina pigment which is the pro_main material in the ink-receiving layers of Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT- 101] is "plate-like". On the other hand, silica pigment which is often used for affordable photo paper is a "spherical shape". Both alumina and silica use binders which play a gluing role to join pigments but a "plate-like" alumina uses less binders, so it can absorb inks quicker than the silica ink-receiving layers.

Because the layer is separated into two layers, quick solid-liquid separation is achieved
The ink-receiving layers of Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT- 101] are separated into two layers and the amount of binder in each layer is optimized. It gives specific functions for each layer, the top layer is for color reproduction and the bottom layer is for absorption. This is how solid-liquid separation of color material elements and solvent elements can be processed quickly.
More vivid color and higher resolution compared to Photo Paper Pro [PR-101], which has a single ink-receiving layer, is achieved. Since Alumina is adopted and the ink-receiving layers are separated into two layers, Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101] is able to produce prints with richer gradation, smoother expression, more vivid color and higher resolution.


The dye is fixed to the surface of the paper, resulting in deeper blacks and a clearer overall photographic finish

Deeper blacks in combination with new black dye ink
There are various blacks for the "black" in photographs such as bluish black, yellowish black, reddish black and greenish black.
A deep, rich black is a "black" that looks truly black to the eye. Rich, deep blacks are not only important for reproducing deep-black areas of photos, they also contribute to the overall density, contrast and vividness of the photo. If the black is light, it weakens the photo's impact, and makes the photo plain.
Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101] is developed to produce a deep, rich black by fixing the dye close to the surface of the paper. Canon has also been trying to make the black ink neutral, and achieved the creation of the deeper "black" in combination with Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101] and 2008 new dye-based black ink [CLI-221].

Photos are beautifully reproduced because the dye is fixed close to the surface of the paper
The ink-receiving layer on the surface of the paper accepts the dyes in the ink and produces the color. If this layer is too thick, the dyes will spread into the bottom making it difficult to gain enough density. However by making the ink-receiving layer simply thinner, it causes the water in the ink to overflow to the paper's surface.

Quick solid-liquid separation fixes the dye to the surface of the paper Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101] solves this dilemma using innovative inkjet coating technology. Using this technology, the ink-receiving layer is split into two layers, a color-reproduction layer on which the dye is fixed and an absorbing layer that soaks up the excess water solvent.
This layered structure enables the dye to be fixed closer to the surface of the paper, improving the density of the black ink compared with Photo Paper Pro [PR-101]. This novel technology achieves rich, deep blacks and bright, vivid photographic results. At the same time, the absorbing layer quickly mops up excess water solvent, for crisp, sharp image quality.


Enhancement for color reproduction in red areas and the ability to express expands further

Wider color gamut makes artworks of professionals and advanced amateurs more attractive
The wider the color gamut is, the more colors that can be reproduced. The combination of Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101] and 2008 new dye-based inks [CLI-221] greatly expands color reproduction especially in red areas (yellow ~ red ~ magenta) compared to the combination of Photo Paper Pro [PR-101] and the previous dye ink [CLI-8]. It brings out PIXMA's full ability to produce photos and achieves the reproduction of richer and more vivid colors.


Color reproduction is stabilized faster than ever before, so you can appreciate the beauty of your photos right away

Optical density immediately after printing is greater than ever, so you see the real colors of your photos, right away
With ordinary inkjet paper, the colors emerge gradually so you cannot quickly see the final results of the photo including color and contrast. Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101] is a completely different experience. The optical density (color density) is high immediately after printing, and color reproduction happens fast. In less time than ever, a reproduction of the colors of the original photo is complete. Images are bright and vivid as soon as the print job is finished.


Improved durability (light fastness/gas fastness) by adding the new durability enhancer in ink-receiving layers
Canon focused on both paper and ink, and worked on things paper can do and things ink can do to improve image durability of photo prints. Based on the discoloration mechanisms (presumption) of the color material, the discoloration of color material have been successfully minimized by adding the new durability enhancer in the ink-receiving layers.

Mechanisms for photo image deterioration (Presumption)
The Mechanisms for photo image deterioration (Presumption) caused by gas and light. Canon presumed the mechanisms of discoloration of printouts is pro_mainly caused by these three deteriorative reactions listed below.

  • The reaction of incoming gas deteriorates the color material
  • The deteriorative chain reaction starts because of the material generated in the process above
  • The chain reaction of light through oxygen deteriorates the color material
  • The approach to Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101]
    Canon discovered the "new additives" to minimize the discoloration of the color material from the discoloration mechanisms of printouts and successfully introduced it to Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101].

    I got a Canon Pro9000 printer over a year ago, and ever since then I've been experimenting with different papers. I order sample packs from paper companies such as Red River, Hahnemuhle, Ilford, and of course the native Canon paper. Since I was a total beginner when it comes to printing, I kept detailed notes in OneNote, compared the same image on different papers, calibrated my monitor, used soft proofing, etc. My goal was to find a paper that I love and that had predictable results from monitor to print.

    After much toil and compromise with the 3rd party brands, I realized that Canon's Photo Paper Pro was a high-quality, consistent paper. It wasn't an exciting discovery - using the expensive paper from the printer manufacturer instead of discovering some money-saving yet exotic specialty paper - but at least my prints were looking good.

    Then as I was restocking on ink, I noticed that Canon updated their product line, releasing Photo Paper Pro II and Photo Paper Pro Platinum. Intrigued, I ordered a 20-pack of letter sized Platinum. Sure enough, soon I had a chance to shoot a portrait of a friend of mine that had many vivid colors, high dynamic range, and a great level of detail. I did a small shoot-out between some Red River paper, Photo Paper Pro (the original), and the Platinum. I won't labor you with the details, but when I printed on Photo Paper Pro after a few Red River misses, I sighed with relief - the colors were rich and faithful, and the image looked great. I then pushed the envelope and printed with Platinum. Wow!!! It got even better! The differences were subtle, but perceptible. The Platinum seemed to have a bit more "pop", probably owing to its higher brightness.

    I purchased this paper to give it a try on my Pixma Pro 9000 printer. I generally don't like photos printed on glossy paper as I prefer a semi gloss or lustre finish. I print a lot of 13 x 19 photos. Anyhow I printed out some wildlife pictures shot in Africa and was blown away by both the depth of the color and the sharpness of the images. I wish I could show you a sample of the output as a picture is worth a thousand words in this situation. I can highly recommend this paper for the pixma pro 9000. I can't speak to how it might perform on other printers as I haven't tried it on any others but on the pro 9000 I would have to give it an A+. Yes, it is expensive $$$, but if the output is important enough it's worth the price.

    Style Name: 100 SheetsSize Name: 4 in x 6 in Verified Purchase
    For comparison purposes, I have compared the Canon Photo Paper Platinum to Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy II, 4 x 6 Inches, 100 Sheets (2311B023) that came with my printer (Canon PIXMA MP990 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-In-One Printer (3749B002)).

    For a casual photographer or hobbyist, I don't believe there is a real valid difference in the paper quality itself. In terms of the way the paper feels, the Pro Platinum feels like a heavier stock, only slightly and only because I had the two types of paper in my hands at the same time. If I didn't, I never would have been able to tell a difference. Comparing the brightness of the two, the Pro Platinum is ever so slightly brighter than the Plus Glossy II.

    Where the Pro Platinum has the edge, however, is archival ability. Using the Pro Platinum with Canon ink will, supposedly, last for up to 200 years if stored in an archival photo album. I still haven't found the statistics for the Glossy II paper, but the previous generation of paper the Glossy II replaced was tested to last up to 25 years in an archival album. If you're not printing to have family heirloom style photos and don't care if it doesn't last for more than a couple years, obviously you won't waste money on the Pro Platinum.

    Comparing the same photo from the same original and the same printer between the two paper types, there is a slight perception of brightness/vividness in the photos on the Pro Platinum. I did a blind test with some family members whom all preferred the Pro Platinum, but generally only just barely.

    The Pro Platinum paper is extraordinary. Paired with a Pixma Pro 9000, it produces stunning art-quality prints.

    It is A++.

    One caveat however -- this paper is probably overkill on a "standard" inkjet printer and probably a waste of money. Go with Glossy II paper for a normal printer I think.

    One other note -- the real cost of printing is INK, not paper, even at this level of quality. Act accordingly.

    Consistently rich with depth and clarity. It is also heavy with maximum resistance to wrinkling. Canon claims exceptional archival properties. I will write a followup in 200 years and let you know.

    This photo paper is pretty good. I have no real complaint. The only negative thing I can think of is that for half the price you can get "Canon's Photo Paper Plus Glossy II" without any noticeable difference in quality. I bought both and printed the same images using both the Pro Platinum and Plus Glossy II and saw no noticeable difference. So because of that, I deducted one star.
