After buying a fantastic Canon printer from the lovely people at The Imaging Warehouse in Stratford-upon-Avon at the Photography Show this year I thought it best to take one of their courses to get a better idea of how different papers compliment different styles of photography and how to best print my work. Well after a few dodgy prints and getting very frustrated I waited until the course to do any more printing... Well I learnt so much and I now have a far better understanding on prints with specific paper from PermaJet. Can't thank them enough for putting on these courses I most certainly will be doing another one!! The paper is stunning who knew it would make such a difference!!

Have installed the icc profiles and just to say that my prints are now excellent.
Many thanks for all your help and I would thoroughly recommend you as a company.
Thank you for sending me my print profiles. I only put them in the post yesterday and I received them today. Excellent service, well done to you and the team.
FB Gold Silk is a dream paper for B&W images. I tested 15 different papers and compared to multigrade wet print and this was by far the best comparison. My darkroom is alive in the Lightroom!
What an amazing service! Posted the test charts yesterday and profiles delivered, loaded and in use on my pc within 24 hours.
Printed a couple of 12x8's as samples on two of the profiled canvases and all I can say is wow.
The match between the two and with the on screen image is astonishingly good. My kit is far from pro level but it looks like it should be with results like these.
Can't wait to varnish these sample tomorrow to see finished result. Thank You For Your Excellent Service & Quality.
Thank you so much for the custom ICC Profile!
I just tried printing my drawing with the custom profile and its output is absolutely gorgeous!!
It's just perfect and the same as the monitor colors! (Even looks better with the paper texture.)
I have been using a sample pack of FB Mono Gloss Baryta 320 and I can honestly say it is the best B&W paper I have used. Printing 30 year old images for the first time on an inkjet and they remind me of the originals done on conventional photo paper. Rich blacks and good midtones.
Thank you for my profiles. The differences they make are incredible. I have to hand it to Imaging Warehouse a fab company who cares about it's customer however mixed up and confused we get. The academy is great. I have learnt loads as well as enjoyed the social aspect. I love my Surecolor P600 and it is working well with the bottles. Thank you again for being so helpful and patient with my stupid situations I got myself in. I might consider the Adobe Photoshop course in the future. Thank you all again. See you soon.
Once again thank you and your colleagues for providing these [ICC Profiles] so quickly. I just wish I'd contacted you earlier, your profiles have revolutionised printing for me - something which has always been a nightmare!
I just wanted to write a quick note to say thank you. I have been using PermaJet papers for a number of years and have always found them to be of outstanding quality. Earlier this year I invested in a P600 printer withyour bulk feed inks. The service and advice has always been spot on and with the profiling service I now get very accurate prints.
I recommend PermaJet to any of my colleagues asking about printing and papers, highlighting that the service and support is of the highest quality. I have dealt with Vij and Alex on most of my visits to the shop and would like to extend my thanks to them for the time they have taken to advise and explain the best teqniques, media and to clear up any technical issues I have had.
It's rare to find a company that does such a good job! Many thanks.
I received my order of Ilford photographic paper and am writing to say what a pleasure it has been doing business with you.
Communication throughout has been exemplary and the order tracking system was spot-on, the package arriving within the hour time slot promised. The driver was courteous and friendly which is more than can be said for some others.
I just wanted to thank all the staff at PermaJet. Whenever I have any contact with any member of staff, whether its advice for the countless issues I have with my printer. Or to buy products. Im always met with a smile.From Louise in sales or technical help from Ian, everyone I meet are always so helpful and kind. An actual helpful human on the end of the phone, or locally, means an awful lot. Pity other company's cant see the importance of this...thought Id just acknowledge this so you can be proud of your staff!
Just got back from your PermaJet Lightroom course and thought that I would drop you a line to say thank you. It was an excellent course, extremely informative and well presented.
Congratulations also to the imaging Warehouse for providing such a great facility and excellent hospitality.
Just to inform you that with your assistance I placed my order Friday last and received the goods Saturday morning.Now that is what I call service!
This is just a quick email to let you know that I have just heard that I have been successful in my application for a Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society. All the images were printed on Permajet Portrait Classic paper, and I thought that I should let you know, and say that I was delighted with the results. Thank you PermaJet!

Superb service again. Ordered Sunday, delivered Tuesday before 11am. (Also cheaper for Epson 3880 than anyone else in UK!). Thanks,
"Great Service from PermaJet! I just wanted to share my experience with PermaJet.
As you may know I have bought a Pixma Pro 9500Mk2 printer and as I have used Permajet paper before wanted to continue with that. Permajet offer on their website generic profiles for the Canon printer which you can download and a free profiling service on swatches printed on your own printer. It was this service that I wanted to take up. I had to set all colour handling off to ensure the prints were passed through Photoshop and the printer without any adjustment. I had a query and phoned Permajet, Vij Solanki was extremely helpful and from that conversation printed the two patches. These were sent of on Tuesday 14th September and I received an e-mail with the profile, a guide to installing them at lunchtime the following day. Now that's great service and worth sharing.
Hi again, I have had great if not perfect results on your test packs using the PRO 3880 ICC Profiles on your web site, the Matt canvas prints look better than a professional one I had done recently.
I have been straight out and bought a pack of MattPlus and Ultra pearl and have printed and dispatched the icc profiles test charts to yourselves for profiling, I will be amazed though if the results are any better. They are a superb product. Thank you for all your time and advice,
— Brent Allan
Thank you; absolutely brilliant service. Both for the speed of returning the profile to me and the results from it. Next on my shopping list is your gloss 271 and Papyrus 300, ( what a good idea you test pack is) and when I receive those I will again ask you to do 2 more profiles. Thank you again.
— David Stuffins
Dear Vij, Firstly may i say thank you for the speedy reply. Secondly, your instructions were very clear concise and worked a treat. I was so pleased this has worked as I am working on a very important image for a customer, and it was very important i got the colour right. Many, many thanks for taking the time and trouble. Kindest regards
— Colin Turner-Bone
I would just like to give you my personal thanks for the excellent service you gave me yesterday when I phoned re the R2880 Eco-Flo Kit. Also to the team who despatched the kit in time for it to arrive about 5 minutes ago. Now that's what I call service and it's very much appreciated.
— Sarah Anne Harvey, Photographer in Residence at the South Devon Railway
I have to say that I am more than impressed with your excellent service, the complete set up, of the whole company just sings. From the telephone conversations that I have had, to the young lad that served me this morning, and for the service on the profiles. A real pleasure doing business with you.
— CP Townend.
Many thanks for the profile you sent me last Monday. It is spot on. The colours are accurate and pure, with incredible shadow detail. I am delighted. Thank you so much.
— Charles Farmer
I just wanted to thank you for your promp attention in dealing with my order for paper. Fantastic service!
— David Putland
Thank you very much for the custom profiles. I had previously been using the standard profiles for your papers and I was happy with them - they are good. Tested the custom profiles this morning and what can I say, wow, this is something else. Very pleased, very happy. Thanks again & best regards.
— Wolf Kettler
Thanks so much for you help! I've used Firefox and loaded the icc profiles. Great paper by the way. I love the Omega 310 and the FB warmtoneThanks so much for you help.
