With advancements in laser printing technology, laser printers have begun to rival and even surpass the photo printing quality of their inkjet counterparts.
Modern laser printers offer clear, vivid photo prints making them the perfect choice for those wanting to produce high volume photo prints.
Can Laser Printers use Photo Paper?
But what about using photo paper with laser printers? Modern laser printers are designed to print using a variety of media and this increasingly includes glossy photo paper.
Glossy media provides the best results when printing photos. The gloss emulsion which coats the media allows the printed photos to reach greater levels of richness and image depth something that is not possible with conventional uncoated media.
However, when printing glossy photos with laser printers it is essential to use laser compatible glossy media.
Laser compatible glossy media is specifically designed to withstand the higher temperatures used in laser printing.
When compared to inkjet printing which revolves around tiny ink droplets being absorbed into the paper, laser printing relies on heat to physically fuse microscopic toner particles onto the page.
The much higher temperatures used in laser printing means that conventional glossy inkjet media is not suitable.
It is for this reason that choosing laser compatible glossy media when using a laser printer is critical.
