About Us

PermaJet was founded with one adventurous aim – to bring the darkroom into the digital world through the creation of a range of high-quality inkjet papers.

Our Story

It all began in a barn in 1983 with the origin of Nova Darkroom and the innovative ‘Nova Slot Processor’, renowned for making life easier for darkroom printers.

The company developed with the digital era which saw the birth of PermaJet inkjet media in 1999. The growth continued each year, and PermaJet successfully launched Europe’s first CIS Bulk Ink System in 2001. We now proudly possess the world’s largest range of award-winning photographic inkjet papers and canvases, inkjet accessories and hardware.

PermaJet is now part of The Imaging Warehouse Group, whose brands cover all aspects of inkjet printing. Our team has a wealth of passionate and knowledgeable individuals who strive to help and inspire customers. Because at PermaJet, we’re all about print.
